The closest I've ever gotten was at the end of Snow. I wanted it to turn out so badly! Yeah, definitely misty. But has anyone ever legitimately cried, during a CYS game?
I've laughed so hard at some of the truly terrible games that I cried, does that count? XD
But no, Snow was the one that legitimately got me the closest to tears, and the 'true' ending of Death Song was pretty touching, but nothing else really struck the same chords.
Truly terrible? *looks down in shame*
Snow was great. (Damn you, broken shift key! HOW HARD DO I HAVE TO PRESS YOU!?"
I don't remember posting this.
Had a good few comments on through time of people saying they cried though. I'd imagine the love/dating category is where most of those stories will be.
That's why snow is one of the top story games on this site. It was one of my most favorite stories. One of the first I read On this site. Probably the only one I ever mentally connected with.
No, storygames generally don't make me cry. -_-
I haven't played Snow because I don't like the genre. Anyway, the most feeling I've gotten from a storygame was Death Song. The ending was poetic and it is currently my second favorite storygame on this site.
Holy fuck... You need to play Snow; it's fantastic. It's definitely up there with the other greats of CYS.
I don't think I will ever cry from reading :p
Unless you don't blink for long periods of time while reading.
Oh, and I think I found that generic emoticon's twin. Here he is :p
Not blinking makes your eyes dry, not the opposite.
Doesn't it make you tear up?
Blinking helps spreads the tears across your eyes. However, if you don't blink, it dries them up and because of this, leaves them at risk from outside objects. I think anyway :p
Your eye can produce water on it's own to try and get the eye back from being dry. I'm not really sure of the whole process but ya.
Technically, it's not your eye producing tears, but the tear ducts conveniently located by your eyes.
I would rather my scent glands behind my eye, so I have a reason to rub my face against women. They need to know when I am ready to mate! The best way to do that, is letting them smell me.
I...honestly...don't know what to say to that.
You're a fox. You can attest to rubbing your scent gland everywhere.
Well, yes, we do scentmark quite a bit, but we don't go rubbin' our scent on each other or anything...well, most of us don't, anyway.
A butt scent gland would be helpful as well, for the same reason.
Well, I think ours are in our butts, or our tails, at least. Still, we don't rub them over each other.
Really? I'm a human being, and I rub my butt on EVERYTHING and EVERYBODY! Weird foxes.
I know, right?
Rub, rub, rub.
Don't question my logic, Brad..... I can turn you into an ash pile with my incinerator...
Death Song made me a bit sad but I never really cried from reading a story.
I can hardly remember the last time I cried reading anything, but I think I was 14, a year after my grandfather died, and reading something where one of the best characters, who happened to be a grandpa-figure, was killed off. I got a lump in my throat and pressed on, because I was in the middle of a classroom and crying there would have been the death of me.
Penguin, how old are you?
On an unrelated note, the last time I actually cried was during Return of the King, after Theoden died. I was in a class, also.
Wait, you watched Return of the King in class... Your school is awesome.
No, I was reading it.
You'd have to have witnessed my backtrolling in Mage Battle (Long since deleted) to witness such a revelation.
The last time I really cried was watching 12 Years a Slave a few weeks ago, because that funeral scene was just really, really heavy, man.
Found it with mistah google.
EDIT: IT wasn't what I thought t'was
You will never find it. It is gone from us all.
Theoden, really? He was already old. I think out of all the LOTR stuff, Faramir might be the saddest for me.
Hey, if you guys want a REAL challenge, try watching "The Champ" without crying... It'll be fun! ^_^
You mean, when the blond kid shakes him, trying to get him to wake up?
It's not that sad. *cries in a corner with a tissue box during movie ending*
I've come across some story games that nearly made me cry, but not quite.
This thread is kinda dead...
That rhyme was intended.
No, it was pretended.
So said coins, the..... er..... *Hides in corner*
And then comes the mourners,
who cry for the post's honor.
And with them, an organ donor,
Who has a major boner.
Chris11302 is a forever aloner.
Let's change the words that rhyme, it'll be fun!
And I really want to make a pun...
Hasn't this already been done?
I think I did it when I was one.
Go to your Fuhrer, little Nazi, run.
Then I, the mightest of them all, shall have won.
Too bad I don't have a gun...
or else the game is done.
It's only been a day Chris, it's only if it's been over a month or two when it can become a problem.
Someone on the site actually called me Chris instead of 11302, stupid, retard, or jackass? That's cool.
Uhh, I mean... *AHEM*
Well, I guess you're right. I'll add 6 days (One week) to my opinion of when a post is dead. Remember, that's when I think a post is dead. Not when anyone else thinks it's dead.
Te be honest, I thought retard was just your middle name. Just kiddin'
Though, I did know a guy named Duncan Cox.
Oh great, we just used a defibrillator on the thread.
EDIT: And after taking an IQ test, I learned my IQ was only 112... I guess I am a retard...
But, I'm not AED certified. I JUST BROKE THE LAW! *Runs off, sobbing*
Edit: I was only a few points higher. That's actually above average, slightly.
I can call you whatever I wish, if you consider Chris an insult when it's in your name then that's your problem.
I was also referring to the thread, not the post.
I don't consider it an insult, it's just what I consider a rarity when I most often get called 11302 or him or that guy or jackass.
^What "that guy" said.
Your post was worded in a way to make it look like you were insulting me. Tis not my fault.
I can't control my emotions when I write! (I have a disorder!)
No, none that I've played. I even played Snow. Maybe I sound heartless, but I barely felt touched by any storygames here. To be fair, if the medium is pure narrative, it takes much more to get any emotional impact out of me. Perhaps I'm a more visual person when it comes to that. I'm usually very sensitive to other media, like movies and even comics.
Well, I cried after I finished all of Ground Zero, I usually do cry when I realize there's no more of any good story.
Also, somehow Snow didn't make me feel anything at all.
Glad to know I'm not the only one.
Then again, I may have been a little...weird in the head while I was reading Snow. I definitely felt sad, but for some random reason I cracked up in the end like the madman I was.
Death Song was definitely very touching though.
I haven't read Death Song yet.
Snow didn't, but The Make-Believe-Sandbox reduced me to a gibbering wreck.
None of those are particularly sad, in my opinion.
I think I cried at one of the endings of Eternal (but in my defense, I was already having a sad day at the time.)
Achievement Unlocked: Made even a murderess cry.
Murderesses cry all the time. They cry in joy.
But in that case, to make them cry, you have to get murdered by them first.
I like EndMaster's method better.
Well, that method only works for Endmaster...becauses he's Endmaster.
Edit: And, oh, you'd only need to make them think they murdered you.
Let someone else get murder by them.
