No but Darkest Dungeon made me realize that I was the aggressor in an abusive relationship allowing me to swallow my pride and go to therapy.

In Final Fantasy XV, your dad dies, your bride dies, then you die.

That was unbearably gloomy. Horrible experience.

Just this I guess. Most games don't get me sad on their own, much less depressed.

For the most part no. Most of the games I've played don't have dark stories. Persona 4 did have some real gut punches though, and I wasn't ready lol.

This. It typically happens with especially long RPGs where I've invested a lot of time with the characters and I'm not quite ready for it to be over yet.

Undead Nightmare

i literally just stopped playing at the conclusion of the Sasquatch sidequest, cuz of how big of a piece of SHIT the game made me feel for having slaughtered all those innocent Sasquatches and leaving the last one all alone

A game itself never really made me sad or depressed besides when it catches me on a bad day and reminds me of something I'm depressed about in my life.

I don't think I've ever been depressed from a game. I've been upset, but it doesn't go beyond that. I weirdly enjoy a good cry from tragedy sometimes.

TLoU2.

it's one of my favorite games, so it had me feeling bummed for pretty much every character, lol.

especially when you threw in the music.

also, Kentucky Route Zero: TV Edition.

I played through it, and even though some of the themes were more nuanced/subtle, it had its fair share of gut punches.
