    Quite what does it say about me that I dragged around Khalid into every battle with the intent to have him killed off?

    I've felt sad at the loss of a character. The Walking Dead has a tendency to do that on a regular basis. The deaths of Dale and Hershel hit me hard as did the
    almost death of Glenn
    that happened earlier this season.

    I can't think of a video game character that made me sad to see die, but certainly in books and in movies there have been a few. One character in particular at the end of Guardians of the Galaxy as for instance.

    I'd mirror that I think "Depression" is the wrong word here. Even 'made you depressed' doesn't quite fit for me. But these character losses absolutely made me sad.

    Male, late 40s.

    Nice survey, but I'am pretty sure in this forum 90% will say yes. When I like a character I can easily feel depression or rage. Or even in this last walking dead episode, the death of a non important character like jessie can make me sad!

    The OP hasn't responded or been active since september, so don't think this survey is active. I didn't notice that myself until after I had replied.

    Gosh, I hope he didn't get an "F".
