I never thought about their memories in such a dramatic way until YouTube user RockyPlanetesimal made a montage of the games to the music of "A Wild And Distant Shore" by Michael Nyman.
The video quality isn't always the best, as it seems to be captured by a camera and not an actual capture device. But it's still touching, nostalgic, and somehow manages to tell a story.
In the end, you just have to keep going right. *cue Dory*
