* ''VideoGame/{{ELEX}}'' takes place on the fictional world of Magalan, home to a Human civilization roughly equivalent to modern day Earth, after a meteor hit the planet causing the collapse of said civilization. The meteor brought with it the element Elex, a precious and limited resource which can power advanced machinery, give people magical powers and re-shape creatures into new and different life forms. Naturally, a major war has started for the control over this resource and in what direction civilization on Magalan will rebuild itself.

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIV'' plays with this trope a tad bit in the ''A Realm Reborn'' era. After the events of the final battle in ''1.0'', the story opens up five years later with many of the city-states trying to rebuild after the [[ThatsNoMoon moon Dalmund]] appeared over Eorzea and broke open, unleashing the dragon Bahamut. They find themselves besieged not only by the primals who seek to take advantage of this by summoning their gods but also by the Garlean Empire, who seeks to continue their reign of conquest. Probably worst off in this are the ''Amalj'aa'' race, where a vast majority of their kind have been tempered by their god Ifrit that the very ''very'' few who haven't are hiding in constant fear.

* ''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]]-arrived and 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.

** Elves in the setting were once immortal and had a magically advanced society before being largely destroyed and enslaved by the [[HumansAreBastards human]] [[TheEmpire Tevinter Emperium]]. [[spoiler: [[VideoGame/DragonAgeInquisition the third game]] reveals that the end for the elves came about more due to civil war, with the humans more or less picking over the bones of their civilization.]]

** Chronologically long before that, we have ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Skyward Sword]]'', which has the Lanayru Desert, filled with dilapidated, abandoned factories and burnt out, deactivated robot husks. Activate a timeshift stone, and you'll see them in all their mechanical, electrical, advanced glory. At the end of the game, the Hylians come down to earth from Skyloft and begin a medieval level society that lasts for [[MedievalStasis hundreds, maybe thousands, of years.]]

* In ''VideoGame/{{Wizard 101}}'' the player arrives at the worlds of Dragonspyre and Celestia after they had been destroyed by the Dragon Titan and the Storm Titan respectively. Dragonspyre looks like hell arrived in a large medieval East European city, with rivers of lava and bones littering the ground. Celestia is the equivalent of Atlantis except the Piceans and Crustateans have since found it and are beginning to build their own empire in the ruins.
* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft's'' expansion pack ''[[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Cataclysm]]'', sunders the land of Azeroth, leaving players to experience a world full of floods, volcanoes and earthquakes with many major settlements and areas destroyed.

** Azeroth actually had it relatively easy. After the Orcs were corrupted by the Burning Legion, Draenor began slowly dying due to demonic corruption and Gul'dan shattering the links between the elements and the Orcs. Ner'zhul created a massive number of portals for the Horde to escape through, with the resulting release of magic tearing the entire world apart. Outland is all that remains of Draenor, a shattered continent floating in the Nether. This has since been {{Ret Con}}ned by Garrosh traveling back in time and convincing his father not to drink Mannoroth's blood, instead, forming the powerful Iron Horde without dependence on demons.

* Implied to be the case in ''VideoGame/{{Portal 2}}'', although its unclear if the world has actually ended or if the computers running the place merely think it has, on account of the fact that the whole facility has fallen apart in the time since the events of the first game. Although given that it shares a universe with ''VideoGame/{{Half-Life}}'', the implication is the Combine invaded [[SleptThroughTheApocalypse while Chell slept]].

* In ''VideoGame/LegacyOfKain: Soul Reaver'', Raziel is thrown into the abyss at the height of his empire's power and comes back 1,000 or 10,000 years (or more) later to find it a crumbling, decaying wasteland. Although in this case, there was no cataclysm, just a gradual downward spiral.
