** Some fans theorize that PMD is an AlternateUniverse where the giant meteor from [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Pokemon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire]] struck the planet and killed off most of the humans.
** In fact, some fans speculate that the main series itself takes place After The End. One theory goes that Pokemon came about due to a machine going haywire which caused a nuclear holocaust. The people that survived either remained unchanged or became the more humanoid Pokemon like Jynx, Mr. Mime and others, while the animals that survived became Pokemon. The whole theory can be read [[http://creepypasta.wikia.com/wiki/Mutant_Future here.]]

* All installments of the ''VideoGame/AnnoDomini'' series that are set in the future (namely, ''Anno 2070'' and ''Anno 2205'' to date) have this as their backstory. Earth's polar caps have melted, mostly due to environmental warming and the occasional nuclear exchange, turning the planet's highest peaks into isolated islands and the only remaining stretches of habitable land. Various [[MegaCorp MegaCorps]] fight over these precious territories and their resources, although all of this does sound worse than it actually is in-game since the ''Anno'' example is a fairly mild one. Humanity still appears to be numerous, uses highly advanced technology and is a lot more concerned about a comfortable lifestyle than just scraping by. ''Anno 2205'' takes it even further down the bright path as open conflict between the [[MegaCorp MegaCorps]] does not exist (they merely compete on the world market), the game world is vibrant, beautiful and full of life, and humanity has even taken to settling the moon in earnest, complete with busy trade routes to and fro.

* ''Videogame/{{OFF}}'': Assuming that [[spoiler:The Room]] isn't symbolic - which it likely is - OFF takes place after the world was destroyed by some disaster; it was rebuilt by [[spoiler:the Queen and the Guardians]], who all hoped to create a new, peaceful world.
** ''VideoGame/ContinueStopRise'': A FanSequel to the above. Played with. This takes place after the world that OFF took place in was destroyed, but in this game's interpretation of events, that world was fake to begin with. The real world hasn't ended at all.

* In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'':
** The entire world had been flooded, and only the Chosen people survived; the rest were killed off. The [[CelShading graphics]] are so light-hearted that it might never dawn on the player that ''over 90% of the population of the planet was drowned.''

''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker'', Hyrule had been flooded, and only the Chosen people survived; the rest were killed off. The [[CelShading graphics]] are so light-hearted that it might never dawn on the player that ''over 90% of the population of Hyrule was drowned''. Though this is downplayed and justified in that said flooding happened long enough ago that the planet was drowned.''world recovered from it, with many populated and peaceful areas.



** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' takes place 100 years after [[EldritchAbomination The Calamity Ganon]] went on a cataclysmic rampage through Hyrule. By the present day, all that's left are a few scattered villages.

** And now, a successful Kickstarter campaign by the game's lead designer, Brian Fargo, has brought about VideoGame/{{Wasteland 2}} is a crowdfunded sequel in the style of a TacticalRPG, due for release in late August/early September TacticalRPG. It has received a love-hate relationship; fans of 2014, the original Wasteland generally liked it, fans of the Bethesda Fallouts generally hated it, and currently available as an early-access title on Steam, though for a higher price than fans of the final game will be on release.Black Isle Fallouts tended to flip-flop.

* VideoGame/SevenDaysToDie takes place after a Third World War. Oddly enough, Navezgane seems to be perfectly intact, aside from it being surrounded by a nuclear wasteland and the entire population withstanding of zombies.

* ''Videogame/{{Destiny}}'' takes place several centuries after humanity experienced a "Golden Age" when they made contact with a benevolent alien god-like being known as the Traveler which blessed earth with immensely-advanced technology and enhanced humans to have vastly greater intelligence and lifespans. Then the Traveler's enemy, a nebulous force known as [[EldritchAbomination the Darkness]] which utterly destroyed humanity despite all their advanced technology and weaponry, and was only stopped by the Traveler performing a HeroicSacrifice to stop the Darkness. The game itself picks up in the "City Age": a time where humanity has managed to scrape together their survivors and scraps of old technology to rebuild a large city beneath the protective shadow of the Traveler's mute body, and now humanity is setting out to retake Earth and the rest of the solar system from their numerous alien enemies who have invaded after their fall.
