* ''AmericanMcGeesAlice'' has this, because Alice has to [[spoiler:battle the Red Queen and kill her in her [[EldritchAbomination true form]] so she can regain her sanity.]]
** Even moreso in ''AliceMadnessReturns'', where after yet another JourneyToTheCenterOfTheMind, this time to rediscover her memories, [[spoiler:Alice confronts Dr. Angus Bumby, the man responsible for burning down her house and the cause of all her grief and exacts some brutal justice all at the (arguable) cost of her perception of reality. [[RealityWarper Assuming it's just her perception that's changed.]]]]

* The ''BaldursGate'' series leans heavily towards this, though the vagaries of being a somewhat open-ended RPG with a great deal of choice as to the nature of the protagonist keep it from being blatant. That said, the player does go to hell. Twice. Among other things.

* By the end of the ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare'' series, there have been countless battles waged around the world between many various factions, with millions dead on all sides, billions in damage and losses, and several nuclear weapons used, with World War III only having been stopped just short of full-on nuclear annihilation. Along the way, Task Force 141 has been disavowed, accused of treason, and had each and every single member die at some point or another, until only one remains. After the peace talks made possible by rescuing the Russian President in "Down the Rabbit Hole", which itself took the HeroicSacrifice of the Delta Force members sent to assist Price and Yuri, it's safe to say NATO and the Loyalists have certainly earned their happy ending. The final level, "Dust to Dust", is about Price earning his.

* The good ending for the PS3 game ''VideoGame/HeavyRain'' has this, at least for Ethan. It starts out with one of his sons died in a car accident and then the other was kidnapped. If Ethan survives, the epilogue will end with a high note as Ethan starts to move on.

* ''VideoGame/FalloutNewVegas'' is set in a CrapsackWorld where multiple factions battle for dominance, but if you jump through enough hoops and [[TheChessmaster do a lot of careful political planning]], a Good Karma NCR ending can bring about a happy ending for just about every faction and individual in the wasteland. Or at least to the ones that deserve them.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'', pursuing the story path with the Minutemen results in this. The Minutemen have had a rough couple of years before you strolled into the scene: their base was wiped out by [[spoiler:a Mirelurk Queen]], their general was killed, most of them ran off to be Raiders or Gunners, the few who remained were slaughtered and only one of them protecting a handful of now-homeless settlers to the last bullet survived through your intervention and sheer dumb luck. With your help, they can rebuild their strength, ally with settlements (and build some new ones), retake their base, and finally [[spoiler:lead an assault on the Institute. With the Railroad being a non-factor (assuming you allied with them and sounded the evacuation of the Institute before you blew it up) and the Brotherhood of Steel being cowed by the show of firepower, the Minutemen become the unchallenged protectors of the people of the Commonwealth, establishing outposts, patrolling the roads and even moving into Diamond City. And all with minimum loss of innocent life.]]

* It's heavily implied that after fighting in and surviving the hellish conflict of World War II, Jimmy Patterson and Manon of ''VideoGame/MedalOfHonor'' ended up getting married. Given the post-credits narration of ''Heroes''' and the fact that the main character of the 2010 reboot is Jimmy's grandson, it's easy to put two and two together. Doubles as a HistoricalInJoke, [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Helene_Deschamps_Adams as the two characters are based on real life people who did just this]].

* ''VideoGame/PokemonSuperMysteryDungeon'' pulls this off twice. By the climax, before which the heroes witness a mountain's worth of horror, betrayal, and sacrifice to bring them to Dark Matter, everyone, including all of their friends and the Legendary Pokemon, are turned into stone, and the Tree of Life that sustains the planet is dying. It took sheer determination to continue fighting and ultimately defeat Dark Matter to revive the Tree of Life. The hero gets rewarded with saving the world by being forced to watch their partner disappear to bring back Mew to truly finish Dark Matter. The player character has to then go through two [[NintendoHard brutally hard dungeons]] to meet Mew in hopes of finding a way to bring back their best friend, only to find out that Mew doesn't even know that he's the reincarnation of the partner. The player character then has to go through another difficult dungeon to rescue Mew from kidnappers who believe that if Mew continues to live, Dark Matter would return. Refusing to say good bye to anyone again, the player character vows that they are willing to fight Dark Matter over and over again to save their new friend. This declaration of friendship just so happens to be the key to bringing back their partner back to life at the dungeon; the whole kidnapping was planned by Nuzleaf and his lackeys who want to make up for their actions under Dark Matter's control. They end up getting accepted back into Serine Village, and the reunited heroes are free to live a happy life together filled with exploration and discovery. And as for the petrified Legendaries and allies? Now alive and well and are front and center to aid the expedition team.
