Did you ever cry while playing the games?

I did.  I admit it.
No, never.
I teared up a little / became choked up, but no tears spilled over.
Cry?  More like bawled.

Does crying manly tears when replaying the old Crimson Echoes demo after the C&D count?


Because if not, almost crying manly tears when Robo was deleted by FATE certainly does...

The whole promotheus scene, I think what really got me was the suddenness and emotionless way in which dark serge went about it. Out of nowhere "release prometheus" done. "destroy prometheus" done. lol

While I've never really cried, Frog's flashback makes me tear up a bit, and then I do it again when he splits the mountain in half, though it's more out of happiness.

This. It was the first time I ever teared up in a game, and I was really hooked on CT since that moment.  Especially with the scene of Frog splitting the mountain in half. It still always gets me too, every time I play the game and get to that mountain scene. It's my favorite scene in any video game. I tend to really hold my emotions in, so no scene in VG has ever made me cry, and the only thing I've ever seen to make me bawl was the season finale of House season... 4 I think? The one with Amber D:.

I didn't cry, but I came close to it a few times when I was playing Chrono Trigger.
I almost cried when I killed Magus to get one of the games endings, I felt like such a bad person when I killed him.
I also almost cried when Marle makes up with her father.
And I almost cried when Zeal was destroyed.

*looks away* Must I admit this...? It's a pain holding these in my memory. Hopefully I can sum up a new flash animation. that'll help give me a smile. Getting CS4 license soon enough.

I cried once...though not done with CC yet.  I cried when I realized my CT ending could have been Marle and Crono on a balloon together instead of the Epoch.  I cried when I realized I robbed myself of that.  I never said it made sense!

Can't say I cried, though I did get sad at the end of CT, and after that I never got to play CC  :( Ah well, I did watch a play through on Youtube, that was my CC fix...

CC , was very sad for me , the orphanage scene expecially it really touched my heart and it finally hit home that the Ct party members were dead . And the music chosen is epic !

Ct , Zeal falling for me was quite emotional it was such an awesome place , and the whole of Magus character is quite emotional too , the new ending is so sad .

Having to decide whether to be truthful to Kid or to let her feel safe for just a few minutes right after her home is burned down and her surrogate mother is killed because you're about to disappear was downright heartbreaking.

Early 20s?  I always thought she looked about 14 or 15.

I did not cry in any part of the game. But i did feel touched by a few parts.

1. When Marle runs to hug Crono when he is revived was touching.
2. When in my first attempt i did not manage to save Lara, i was sad, although I did eventually.
