* ''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 consisting of zombies.

* ''VideoGame/HorizonZeroDawn'' takes place in a future where ruined cities have been reclaimed by nature and robots roam the Earth. [[spoiler:It's later revealed that the game takes place in 3040 AD in what was once Colorado and Utah after a RobotWar ended all life on Earth in 2066 and humanity [[FlingALightIntoTheFuture created an AI to terraform and repopulate the Earth]].]]

** ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII'' takes place after the end [[spoiler:when Etro's death caused a TimeCrash at the end of ''XIII-2'']] and, simultaneously, a few days ''before'' the end of [[spoiler:this time-crashed world]] coming to its end. It's her duty to seek out and save as many souls as she can, before the end takes place again.

* Would you believe ''VisualNovel/HatofulBoyfriend'' has this for its backstory? To wit: [[spoiler: Decimated by a superstrain of bird flu, humanity attempted to eradicate the plague-carrying birds with an engineered virus of their own. The birds that survived the latter developed sapience, realized humans were trying to kill them, and fought back, killing even more humans.]] And now you know why all the love interests are pigeons, and the human heroine lives in a cave in the middle of the wilderness.

**There are hints of this for the Dwarves. Solas calls them "a severed arm twitching in a pool of its own blood," possibly implying that the dwarves used to be connected to the fade and were suddenly and violently cut off from it.

** 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.
