Game: Final Fantasy X (2001)
If you are gonna crib, you may as well crib from the best. Throughout the entirety of Final Fantasy X, there was a question as to what happened to Tidus's father and why he abandoned him at a young age. Spira was entirely devoid of therapists so Tidus had to work out his daddy issues the old fashioned way, by martyring himself to save the world from absolute evil. That absolute evil, by the way, turned out to be his long lost father. Yikes. Where's a protocol droid when you need one?
