* 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.

Added DiffLines:

* 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.

** There's a faint hope spot, however. As an easter egg, you can find in GrandTheftAutoV on some bookshelves a book named "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.]]

** 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.]]

* John Marsten'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...]]

* As funny as the NPC Link Huston is, it's really easy to get bummed out when you hear plead desperately "Don't hit me, mama! Don't hit me!" when he's been injured.

** Another retroactive one: [[spoiler: after killing Dutch, you return to Beecher's Hope and do [[ScrappyLevel a series of ranching missions]]]]. [[spoiler: Pretty much everyone gets sick of them in a hurry, as it's just John talking with his wife and son while hunting wolves, rangling cows and delivering supplies. Play those missions again after beating the game and listen to the dialogue. Ouch...]]

* It's telling that out of all of the Stranger missions, the happiest one has you reunite a zoophile with his favorite horse. Almost all of them are grim and depressing, and even when you do the "right" thing, you often end up making people's lives worse. Probably the saddest is the "California" mission. You meet a friendly man, Sam, traveling in the wilderness, looking for California. Marston does his best to help him on his way, but he keeps wandering. Marston keeps running into him, and he looks more and more haggard, eventually threatening Marston with a gun. Marston eventually finds his corpse being eaten by vultures. In his possession was a letter to his wife. He explains that ever since his ancestors left the Black Sea, his family has been travelers and explorers. He thought that California would bring him hope, but America is a land of broken dreams. He says that he loves his wife and leaving her was the stupidest thing he ever did.

** Dutch's death is itself a bit of TearJerker. You first encounter Dutch expecting a CompleteMonster, but instead discover a broken TragicVillain who has crossed the DespairEventHorizon. His final words followed by his suicide manages to be very poignant despite the horrible things he's done.

* 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.''
---> [[spoiler: '''Jack''': I was gonna be a writer.]]
