* In the end of ''VideoGame/WolfensteinIITheNewColossus'', after years of brutal Nazi occupation, the Resistance spark a new hope in the world. [[spoiler:Blazkowicz's body is no longer crippled and dying, so he'll live to see the eventual defeat of the Nazi regime and the resulting peace. He has avenged Caroline and Super Spesh by killing Frau Engel, ensuring the Nazi regime is headed by an ailing Adolf Hitler who will likely die in a few years without an effective successor. He has proposed to Anya and ''[[BabiesEverAfter has twins on the way]]''. And best of all the Second American Revolution is under way, and if the credits sequence is any indication, results in an utter defeat for the Nazi regime which forces them to flee into space.]]

Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/GrandTheftAutoV'', the two bad endings of the game are earned after some relatively easy missions, and both result in one player character dead and the remaining two ceasing all contact. The third ending follows Franklin fighting to get Michael and Trevor to set aside their differences so they can secure their freedom by killing their enemies. It is one of the tougher missions in the game, but completing it results in the best ending where all three player characters survive, get off scott-free, and remain on good terms.

* After decades of fighting and suffering, each AgarestSenki game will get to a point where the player will be able to get either a BittersweetEnding, a DownerEnding, or the happier TrueEnding. It should be noted that just unlocking the route itself is already a GuideDangIt, and beating it will require several really hard fights.

* The DirectorsCut version of AfraidOfMonsters has four endings. The first three are {{Downer Ending}}s that are each more bleak than the last, and the final, happy (albeit bittersweet) ending can only be achieved by first seeing the first three endings, as well as solving a game long puzzle.

* ''ArTonelico'' does this in two ways: the game has multiple endings, in some of which you can [[spoiler:redeem the BigBad instead of killing it off;]] Also, in the visual novel-like adventure within the "soulsphere" of Lady Shurelia, [[spoiler:which plays like a MagicalGirl TV show, you get a surprising BittersweetEnding, unless you go back again- then you find out that it was actually due to tampering by the Big Bad itself, and you get the chance to earn a happy ending instead.]]
** [[spoiler:Of course, in the second game you find out that it was actually SHURELIA who tampered with the story to make it have a happy ending, not Mir/Jakuri tampering with it to give it a DownerEnding. In fact the only reason Mir interfered in the first place was because she was pissed that Shurelia [[SeriousBusiness tampered with her story]].]]

* ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfSpyro'' series by {{Sierra}} ended its trilogy based on this trope. [[spoiler:The world literally cracks apart after the Dark Master has seemingly won and accomplished destroying the world. But Spyro uses his powers to save the world at the last moment with Cynder at his side. All their friends are okay and Ignitus, thought dead, is now the new Chronicler. The bittersweet part is that Spyro and Cynder are apparently dead... until its revealed they miraculously survived and after all the crap they've gone through, they've earned the happy ending they both deserved after all those scenes of angst. Oh, and apparently Cynder loves Spyro so they're more then likely in love now. Only took the end of the world for the relationship to become canon.]]

* ''VideoGame/SOS'' is ''made'' of this trope. Since it's about escaping a sinking luxury cruise liner, you have to find and escort enough people as well as certain persons depending on what character you're playing as. You get one real time hour to do this. But if you can pull off an escort mission to end all escort missions, you can get the happiest ending, allowing you character and the people they care about to not only move on from the disaster but become better people.

** In ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneyDualDestinies Dual Destinies]]'', the legal system is in the middle of the Dark Age of the Law, where prosecutor and lawyer alike seek victory at any legal cost and trust in the legal system is at an all time low. And the catalyst for the Dark Age, Phoenix's disbarment and [[spoiler: Simon Blackquill's incarceration for the murder of Athena's mother]]. While the former was dealt with in the previous game, the later is still very much a problem. And that's not even getting into what happens in the game: [[spoiler: A courtroom was bombed right at the begining of the game (though it happens later chronologically). The victim of the forth case was Apollo's friend, and Athena gets accused of his murder, causing Apollo a conflict of loyalties, Blackquill is just one day from his execution by the day of of the final case, and getting him acquitted will only get Athena convicted of the murder of her own mother. And Trucy is held hostage at the Space Museum with several others.]] In the end, [[spoiler: both Athena and Blackquill are proven innocent, Trucy is safe and the real culprit is bought to justice, with the Wright Anything Agency intact and ready to put an end to the Dark Age of the Law.]]
