9: Saddest Game Scene?
Hands down, it’s Jenny’s death scene in The Darkness…it’s a tragedy and one that you are helpless to prevent; Jenny is trapped on the other side of the door with mob boss Paulie Franchetti while The Darkness is stopping you from helping her.
What made the trauma worse is that, I was playing the game with a friend and he had decided to take a nap, which a) meant I had to endure this tragic event by myself and b) that I got blamed for it.
After Jenny’s murder though, there was no way I wasn’t going to finish that game; I was on an absolute mission and whupped everyone. It’s a shame the game kinda peters out towards the end…it becomes more narrative than game….
Still, it’s a powerful memory and one I remember vividly over ten years later….
