* Played with in ''VideoGame/UntilDawn''. Chapter breaks take place in the office of Dr. Hill, who talks to you about "the game you're playing" and asks you questions that alter the nature of Until Dawn's scares and atmosphere. The office in particular becomes darker and more frightening along the choices and fears of the player him/herself. [[spoiler:Or so it would seem. Late in the game, it is revealed that the person Dr. Hill has been talking to is Josh, and the office is a reflection of Josh's increasing instability from his mental illness and inability to cope with the loss of his sisters. The fourth wall was never broken; it was all roleplaying. As this revelation comes late in the game (and constitutes a significant spoiler),]] many reviews of the game played up this apparent "customize the scares" idea at face value, often with disapproval of the concept.

* ''VideoGame/SeriousSam 2'' does this quite often. First, NETRICSA mentions having "a bigger game budget", which leaves Sam confused. Despite this, he goes on to say "this game is full of bugs!" upon meeting the Zum Zum, a giant bee, and after beating it, he says "There will be no bugs in this game!"
** Also included is a telephone call to the game producers.

* ''VideoGame/SeriousSam Several games in the ''VideoGame/SeriousSam'' series frequently break the fourth wall.
** About midway into the first game's Alley of the Sphinxes level, the camera hovers around four locations at which artifacts must be placed. Sam asks, "Just what the hell was that anyway?"
** ''Serious Sam: The Next Encounter'' has Sam breaking of the fourth wall rather often, including these lines:
---> "You know, studies show that games with monkeys in them [[EverythingsBetterWithMonkeys are 30% more fun]]."
---> "[[DoNotAdjustYourSet Do not adjust your set.]] I think this is supposed to happen."
** ''Serious Sam
2'' does this quite often. breaks the fourth wall so frequently, there's hardly any presence of a fourth wall.

** The ''Franchise/{{Disgaea}}'' series [[NoFourthWall barely has a fourth wall to begin with]]. Characters are fully aware of their stats and levels, different [=NPCs=] try to steal the "main character" spot, and there's surprise when a BonusBoss from an earlier game turns out to have a role in the main quest. Why, yes, the one Laharl couldn't believe was level four thousand.\\
\\
''VideoGame/DisgaeaHourOfDarkness'' also has a beautiful example at the end of chapter four, when [[BigBad Vulcanus]] says that he's going back to Celestia to come up with a new plan and starts to walk away, then pauses and turns and says, "Got that!? Don't forget it, even if I don't make an appearance for awhile!" Sure enough, he doesn't re-enter the plot until there are only a few chapters left.

* Near the beginning of ''Randal's Monday'' the title character encounters a crazy bum who keeps insisting he's really a businessman. One of the possible responses is "Look, I hate to burst your bubble, but when I put the cursor over you it says 'bum'."
