Tear Jerker / Sanitarium

  • The Mansion level in Sanitarium is a Tear Jerker, mostly due to music and the flashbacks. However, like almost everything else in this game, it is also Nightmare Fuel.
  • The cutscene that occurs between chapters 3 and 4, where we finally find out why Max's mother was summoning him.
  • Maria Santiago in chapter 2. Have tissues handy when you ask her about the pumpkin patch.
  • The backstories of Carol Driscoll and "Mother"
    • Mother may be the most sympathetic of the villains, due to this.
