Tear Jerker: Homefront
In the opening introduction's bus ride, which doubles as both horror and TearJerker worthy, Jacobs watches a mother and father put up against a wall with two Korean MPs preparing to shoot them ... with their child being forced to watch. The mother begs her child not to look right before they are shot in the head. The MPs then walk off, leaving the child to scream and cry over his parents' corpses. All the more reason for you to start blowing their heads off when you get the chance.
