Top 10 tragic couples in videogames

  • 1Cloud and Aerith (Final Fantasy VII)
    Aerith's untimely death would change videogames forever and also make a hole in the hearts of Cloud Strife and FF players.

  • 2Link and Zelda (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)
    the epilogue gives hope that, in child Link's timeline, those two will be together once more.
    By the end of the game, Link finally rendezvous with his Princess after been frozen in time for many years and traversing lots of dungeons. It would be a happy ending if he did not had to be sent back to his time so the door of time culd be shut, which basically means both timelines would be forever apart as they would be. Nonetheless, the epilogue

  • 3Link and Midna (The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess) Make Your Case
  • 4Jim Raynor and Sarah Kerrigan (Starcraft Series) Make Your Case
  • 5Alen and Cerl (Breath of Fire)
    Still, both of them would appear again as children in the ruins of that castle, leaving the players an open end to what could have happened, if such was just a scene from the past or both had a second chance to finally be together.
    Spending their childhood playing together, Alen and Cerl would grow apart when villagers expelled her due to her nature as a monster. She assumed the role of one of the Dark Dragon's generals, while he left the village behind to find her. She would realize her wrong actions and both of them would vanish together in a castle lost in time.
    This will probably be one of the most underrated options, since Breath of Fire is such an old RPG and these characters aren't even protagonists. Still, their love story is seriouesly one of the biggest highlights of this game.

  • 6Commander Shepard and any romance option. - Mass Effect suggested byAngelita Ellison
    Any romance you start in the game is doomed to tragedy twice since Commander Shepard dies twice in the series.

  • 7Link and Saria (The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time)
    They were never a couple in the game, just good friends. Link actually runs from her at one point. It is actually kind of creepy that she would fall in love with the guy she helped raise.
    Taking care of the orphan Link as a baby, Saria would have a motherly figure to him, perhaps. But, as time passed and he grew up, so did her love, but fate showed itself to separate both, placing him as the hero of time and her as the sage of the forest, bound to live in the sacred realm, away from him.

  • 8Master Chief and Cortana (Halo Series) Make Your Case
  • 9Tidus and Yuna (Final Fantasy X) Make Your Case
  • 10Arthas Menethil and Jaina Proudmoore (Warcraft 3 and World of Warcraft) Make Your Case
