The part of Amber that depressed me the most was the underwater maze, with the children singing in the background. When I couldn't find my way out, I actually started the game over to get back on solid ground.

And I really enjoyed Santitarium, even though it had a sad background story. There was enough quirky hyumor throughout the game to keep me amused.

I thought Blackstone's Chronicles was extremely sad. I haven't replayed it because of that.

I Have No Mouth is a dark set of stories in book form and the game is no different. Make sure you are in a very good mood before you play this game.

Most games that I find to be dark or have sad moments - I liked the games very much and considered that emotional connection one of their strong points.

The ending of the Legend of the Prophet series always makes me weepy, but I love the game story.

I always felt sad for the little boy under the bridge in Return to Zork.

In Journeyman Project 3, while in the Andes village. Knowing what the future could or would hold, colored things for me while I was there interacting with the peaceful, lovely people of that place.

Yes, the RTZ waif was sad. I wanted to help him. Since everything was better for everyone else, I presumed his life got back on track at the end. It would have been nice to have seen it though.

Zork:Nemesis had some very grim/dark bits but it didnt depress so much as enrage against evil. The main sad thing proved undoable after all. The overall feel of the game (aside from that one area) wasnt too dark. And thats my only candidate. Not sure it counts.

The Myst games had some sadness to them but it never overwhelmed.

Same thing with Amerzone. If you dwelt on its past too much, it could depress you. Still, I enjoyed exploring and knowing I was fulfilling the last wish of the elderly explorer.

I didnt find Syberia sad. I found it hopeful. Seemed to me like Kate's arrival was making life better for those she encountered. Made up for the rust as far as I was concerned.

I havent played many of the ones people are mentioning (yet). Thats probably why I dont have a proper nominee.

As soon as I finished Black Dahlia I swore I would NEVER play it again.In fact I swapped it for another game.I like a game and books to be uplifting and to give some hope.

I am not a great fan of horror especially explicit horror. I would rather be entertained by a different story line.

Still I liked
Dark Fall
Amber
Morpheus

Parts of those games made me sad.

I found the Drowned God depressing and thought about it quite a bit without resolving my ambiguous feelings.

Tristy I didn't mean things in the aspect of the games being good or bad, I simply meant that there isn't any game I played that I felt was depressing and just stated that alot of the games mentioned were in my favorites, would play again and I didn't find them to be depressing at all.
