*''VideoGame/{{Overwatch}}'' has this quite badly. Although some of the massive story surrounding the world appears in the game, it appears mostly as easy to miss dialog or clues on the large and varied maps. Almost all of the story is contained in the shorts, trailers, in-universe news articles, and comics found on various other sites. The special event Uprising finally gave us some story in game, but alas, only for one particular Overwatch mission and it can be accessed only for a limited time.

** If the player chooses to play the True Pacifist Route, the final page changes to a note from Flowey that simply reads: "Don't get to cocky."

** If the player chooses the Genocide Route, almost every page changes to the last thing seen before the play quits the game, which is the Undertale title screen, and underneath it, it reads in red text: "That was fun. Let's finish the job."

* ''VideoGame/Shatterhand'' just shows a cut scene of him punching a robot. The manual lets you know that there is an army of them trying to TakeOverTheWorld, that Steve Herman lost his hands trying to stop two of them, that he now has robotic hands he uses to fight them, and that the game's title is his code name.

** ''VideoGame/SonicMania'':
*** The manual explains a bit more about the [[QuirkyMinibossSquad Hard-Boiled Heavies]], including their names, personality traits, and [[ViewerGenderConfusion even their genders]]. It also refers to the game's MineralMacguffin as the Phantom Ruby.

** [[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIDaggerfall Daggerfall]]'s manual has a 'history' portion that details not only the history that can be found in-game, but also elaborates in more detail the events that lead from meeting the Emperor to waking up in a cave than what the game, itself, does. The manual also includes a handy genealogical chart for the three main noble houses of the Iliac Bay, although that information can be found in-game (just not graphically and in one place). Daggerfall's manual, however, is also notoriously shaky. Because they wrote the manual for features they had in planning, but never got around to release, the manual gives reference to objects which don't exist.

** Everyone knows that the [[ANaziByAnyOtherName Nazi-esque]] Thalmor in ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' are hell-bent on banning [[DeityOfHumanOrigin Talos]] worship because they believe he is the last thing keeping Mundus (the mortal realm) extant and doing so will [[KillTheGod kill him]], [[OmnicidalManiac ending Mundus]] and returning their spirits to a state of pre-creation divinity, right? Actually, that isn't mentioned anywhere in ''Skyrim'' at all. That idea comes from "Obscure Text" writings by former developer Michael Kirkbride. However, there is plenty of supporting evidence in-game indicating this to be the case anyway, and most fans have adopted it as official lore as a result.

* Conversations with NPCs in ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse2'' will explain what happened to the HubWorld of ''VideoGame/DragonBallXenoverse'' and how it was replaced with the current one. You'd probably forget to even find them more or less know there was a story behind it.

* TalesOfVesperia has a lot of background information for characters as well as proper motivations for the enemies listed in an offshoot or two that never came over to America. What makes this a perplexing entry is that the Tales series of games are normally VERY good at including that sort of information and is usually one of the chieftain exemptions from this trope; which makes why they chose that route for this entry very questionable.
