FFD: When did a game last make you feel something?

Emotionless

It’s so seldom that games are able to elicit any sort of emotional response from me at the moment Maybe I’m turning in to a soulless, miserable robot. Mayhaps that’s the fault of the AAA game space – which is, admittedly, where most of my gaming happens. But where games regularly used to make me cry, or smile, or revel in awe at some great big “holy hell” moment – I find it happening less frequently.

And I’ll be honest – I’m trying, but I’m struggling to remember the last game that left me with a giant goofy grin plastered all over my face, or the last game that had me wondering where the onion-cutting ninja was hiding. Was it perhaps the whimsical charm of Kirby Triple Deluxe that last left me giggling? Maybe Mario Kart 8? Perhaps it was Brothers: a Tale of Two Son – or my perennial favourite, a game I can’t stop loving, Fire Emblem: Awakening?

I don’t really know. Maybe I’m becoming cold and callous miserable old bastard, but those moments aren’t as prevalent, and that’s despite – or perhaps because of – me playing so many more games now. IS it just me, am I becoming an emotionless drone?

Tell us though! What were the last games you played that actually made you feel something? Y’know, other than rage and hatred because of uPlay or whatever.

Editor. I'm old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time - they were capable of being masterpieces. I'm here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.
