Tear Jerker: Extra Credits

  • Both parts of the second part of of Video Game Addiction. Poor James.....
    • The worst part? While James eventually made it out of his crisis, his friend didn't.
  • Allison leaving.
  • Extra History - World War 1: The Seminal Tragedy - Chapter 2: One Fateful Day in June. The last words of the Archduke Franz Ferdinand. It's Daniel's delivery that does it.
    Daniel Floyd: The Archduke looks over, barely noticing the gendarmes wrestling the young man by the car to the ground. His only sight is for his wife, lying quietly on the floor of the car. He reaches out with a hand weak and heavy. Something is wrong with his neck. He can't quite think straight. He sees her and he utters one last wish "Sophie, Sophie, don't die! Live for our children." A man leans over and asks if he's badly hurt. He thinks he says "It's nothing, it's nothing..." He repeats the phrase, each time a little more quietly, and neither of them live through the hour.
  • The ending montage in Extra History - World War 1: The Seminal Tragedy - Chapter 4: The Final Act. No narration—just some music and images of the scars left behind by the war.
    • The fact that the poor German ambassador was pretty much on his hands and knees begging his Russian counterpart to call off the mobilization. What did he get? Just one word, "No." And just like that, the very thing he was desperately trying to avoid happens. The only heartwarming moment to come from this is that his Russian counterpart did at least offer to help him pack his things to go back to Germany.
    • Again, it's Daniel's delivery.
    Daniel Floyd: Then PourtalÚs rises to his feet, and takes the piece of paper from his pocket, and says "In that case, sir, I have the honour to inform you that...we're at war." He's still struggling to collect himself, saying "*sighs* I never thought I'd be leaving Russia like this. I don't know how I'll be able to pack." *opening piano notes to In Flanders Fields start to play* Sazonov kindly offers to send somebody to help gather his things. And a month later, a million men are dead. The Seminal Catastrophe has begun.
    • For a bunch of cartoon characters with no arms and sticks for legs, they can get remarkably expressive.
