* Almost everything said by [[spoiler: Jack after you take him over as the PlayerCharacter]]. Everything. Take on a random NPC quest? [[spoiler: "Sure. Nothing better to do with my time."]] Save a kidnapped woman? [[spoiler: "I got nothin' else to live for."]] Skin an animal? [[spoiler: "Just like you showed me, Pa."]] Kill a horse or dog (even by accident)? [[spoiler: "I used to love animals."]] Kill a woman (again, even by accident)? [[spoiler: "No wonder I'm alone," or "WhatHaveIBecome"]] Considering everything he's gone through, it's understandable that he'd cross the DespairEventHorizon at some point... but ''damn.''

* "Dead Man's Gun." You cried, admit it.
** Kind of a FridgeHorror Tear Jerker: [[spoiler: when John confronts Dutch, he tries to convince Dutch to stop fighting and just give up, but Dutch says it's not possible. When John says that mean he has to kill Dutch, Dutch tells him "when I'm gone, they'll just find another monster". And just before throwing himself to his death, in a weak and defeated voice, he says "Our time has passed, John". When you see the ending, that scene becomes way more painful.]]

* John Marston's [[spoiler: death is sad enough as it is, then [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0wfNjf1cWRs Bury Me Not on the Lone Prairie]] plays during his funeral]] and...[[ManlyTears I'm sorry, I have something in my eye...]]

* Losing one of your horses, if you've gotten used to it. Even moreso if it's the golden horse you get specially during one of the missions.

Good news is you can quickly quit the game, or more easily, just have Marston get killed, and when he respawns the horse you got attached to will be back as well.

** There's a faint hope things will get better, however. As an easter egg, you can find in GrandTheftAutoV on some bookshelves a book titled "Red Dead", written by a certain J. Marston. [[spoiler: Assuming this is Jack and not John (which is more likely), that means that at some point after the playable epilogue, Jack did manage to settle down and write at least one book that is still read 100 years later.]]

* Luisa's death. Sure it was case of WhatAnIdiot, but watching one of the most decent people in the game die is still tragic. Worst part? [[SenselessSacrifice It was all for nothing.]] She died trying to save a man who didn't give a crap about her and, after rising to power, becomes the same kind of person Luisa had been fighting to overthrow.

** Furthermore, it means that John [[spoiler: failed in his quest for redemption. His main goal, the one he fought desperately to achieve, was to raise his son a different man than he was, to give something good to this world after commiting so many bad things in his life. The fact that Jack ends up a vengeful, coldhearted gunslinger is heartbreaking.]]
