Yes they are. Remember when everyone was all about the "yes games are art, yes they make you cry". Who ever cried at a game? The nearest I came to crying was when Richie and I were two-TV, no save, speed running Resident Evil 2 and I died at the end boss. Damn, now I'm welling up again just thinking about it. However, there is a new platform of media that makes people cry. I give you: Pokemon the first movie.
Watch it and cry* like a girl unless you are so heartless. Cold and heartless heathen.
*Not gay crying you understand. Fake allergy crying. We've all got them right? Right?
