Ok, so here's a question for everyone. How emotionally invested do you get in video games? And I'm not talking just the typical "oh, I beat the game, that's so cool, I'm happy" and stuff. I'm talking about crying because of something that happened in a game - take Final Fantasy 9, for instance. I won't describe it in detail as to not spoil it for anyone who hasn't played it - but the final movie sequence makes me cry, it's just all a damn emotional rollercoaster between finding out what happened with the different characters and such.
And for books, as well - do you react strongly to things that happen in books? For instance, take what happened in the latest Harry Potter book or in the final book of Stephen King's Dark Tower series? There were a couple of things in Dark Tower 7 that made me cry in there too - again, people who have read it will know what I am referring to.
Also, when replying, for those of you who think im a total whackjob, please be nice. :)
