** ''VideoGame/SlyCooperThievesInTime'' ends with [[spoiler:Sly himself missing in action, his friends looking for him, and [[RonTheDeathEater Penelope]] escaping from prison]]. The secret ending reveals that [[spoiler:he's in Ancient Egypt]], which would've made it a BittersweetEnding if not for the fact that [[FranchiseKiller Sanzaru has stated they will not make a sequel]]. [[FanonDiscontinuity The fandom did not take that well]].

* ''RuleOfRose'': It is revealed that Jennifer is the sole survivor of an airship crash, and the entire game was her literally reliving her traumatic childhood memories. Everyone else, including her beloved dog Brown, is actually dead. And even worse, if not getting the good variant of the ending, then it is implied that she is ''stuck'' in that trauma, having to relive it again and again.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/ToTheMoon'' moves between this and BittersweetEnding. At the end, Johnny gets his wish and goes to the moon and a beautiful sequence plays out just as he dies. [[ForegoneConclusion But it was all in his head, he never really went to the moon and instead he and River had a difficult marriage and he sometimes deeply resented her]]. Plus, he never really found out why he wanted to go to the moon aka [[spoiler: that he knew River ever since he was a small child or that he had a twin brother that died in a car accident]]. And to twist the knife further, it gets heavily implied at the end that [[spoiler: Neil is dying himself]].

* ''{{VideoGame/Outlast}}'' concludes with [[spoiler:the protagonist failing to escape Mount Massive Asylum, instead becoming the new vessel of the [[BigBad Walrider]]. His counterpart in the ''Whistleblower'' DLC fares much better, fortunately, and does manage to extract some good from the first protagonist's sacrifice.]]

** Ending 20, added in Afterbirth+, is a brutal MindScrewdriver. It goes through the above, OnceMoreWithClarity, confirming beyond doubt [[spoiler:that Isaac did climb into an airtight chest and suffocated to death, the game was his DyingDream, and Isaac's mother found him too late]].

* Depending on Geralt's actions throughout the game, ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3'' and its expansions offer several endings depending on Geralt's choices, many of them depressing.
** If Geralt has been a less-than-ideal father figure to Ciri, the game
can end with [[spoiler: Ciri [[HeroicSacrifice dying while saving the world]] from The White Frost, and Geralt mourning after retrieving her Witcher medallion from Weavess while a swarm of monsters rush into the house he's in.]]
** In the ''Hearts of Stone'' expansion, unless Geralt decides to take action then the story ends with [[spoiler: Gaunter O'Dimm [[DraggedOfftoHell taking Olgierd von Everec's soul]] and rewarding Geralt for helping him do it.]]
** The ''Blood & Wine'' expansion has three endings, two of them bad. [[spoiler: If Geralt allows Detlaff to kill Syanna, then regardless of whether he kills Detlaff or not Geralt will be thrown in prison and narrowly escape life imprisonment thanks to the efforts of Regis and Dandelion. The Duchess now hates Geralt even if he reveals Syanna's plan to murder her, [[UngratefulBastard refuses to pay him the full reward he was owed for stopping the murders]], and if he let Detlaff go then many in Toussaint resent him as well.]] [[spoiler: If Geralt doesn't figure out why Syanna wanted the Duchess dead and convince them to reconcile, then Syanna stabs the Duchess in the back at her trial before being immediately shot in the neck with a crossbow bolt. The two sisters are placed side by side in the same crypt, and Geralt goes to place roses on the Duchess' coffin while lamenting the deaths he failed to prevent.
