Most games are depressed and miserable, but are they truly tragic? Of course not, otherwise there wouldn't be a video asking such a deliberately leading question. The trouble with most games today is that they rush to the sadness without first giving us the happiness.

This week, the Jimquisition tackles games that are too consistently miserable to be truly sad, and celebrates a certain game that nailed the perfect balance between smiles and tears.
