Have you ever been so moved by a video game that you actually cried?
Apparently, quite a number of people do cry affected by video games. According to a survey conducted by ASCII Media Works' website DENGEKI Online(Jp), 46.5% of the gamers have at least once cried, touched by a video game. The poll was taken from September 25 to October 8, 2008, and the average age of the respondents were 25.46, consisting of 86.3% male and 13.7% female, which must kind of reflect the general gaming population.
The title of the game that made them cry was also asked in the survey, and here are the top ten video games that made people cry.
