The Mother series has made men cry since the first game in 1989. But the saddest of all is the 3rd installment: Mother 3.
The game is different to the other two games; You go around an island instead of a city and it is set after the two games. This game also reveals some extra information about what happened at the end of both games, like the world eventually ending due to Mankind.
The emotions in this game shift. There are so many humerous parts, like F***
ad slipping of the Thunder Tower, and some sad Moments, like when the dragon awakens and
the Masked Man kills himself. However, watching the ending doesn't really have the effect of the ending when you play the game. The game is even sadder when you name the characters after your family.
Before the mother(Default name = Hinawa) dies, you get to know her. She's kind, gentle and loving. However, she saved Lucas and Claus (Default name of the twins) by sacrificing herself, causing her to be attacked by the Drago. You play as Flint(Default name for the father) to try and find them, until Bronson brings you the bad news. This causes Flint to freak out, scaring Lucas and Claus.
For the death of the Masked Man.... He is your rival in the game. It's a race to pull the needles the save the Nowhere Islands and only those with a special Skill, PK Love(Hence my name, even though it can be changed depending on your favourite thing, chosen at the beginning at the game) can pull the needles. An order of destruction will happen if one with a bad heart pulls more needles than those with a good heart, but those with a good heart pull out more needles than bad, the world would of been saved from Chaos. The Masked Man tries to kill you; using Mechanical Gorillas to fight you, and finally coming head to head with you. After beating him, he flies off, and you try to make it to the final needle. Before you finally get to the needle, Flint tells Lucas that the Masked Man is actually Claus, his long lost brother. (He went out to kill the Draco that killed Hinawa) When you finally get to the needle, the Masked Man is there, about to pull it. He fires Lightning at you, but your franklin badge reflects it, beginning the final boss of Mother 3.
Knowing it's his brother, Lucas is unable to fight, while Claus continues to attack him. Every few turns, Hinawa, as a ghost, speaks to them, but it is unable to the Masked Man. During the second part, http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P-EKQp4Hedk
this sad music plays, and the message finally get's through to the Masked Man, and he takes off his Mask, revealing he is actually Claus. He then shoots an intense bolt of lightning, reflecting off Lucas' Franklin Badge(He intended this), ultimately killing himself.
He then hugs Lucas, and dies, and one of the saddest scenes in the game plays.
