* ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquerRedAlert2'', ''VideoGame/ModernWarfare 3'', and ''VideoGame/{{Battlefield 3}}'', amongst other games, all featured terrorist attacks in Paris. In 2015, Paris was hit by two horrible terrorist attacks, one at the Charlie Hebdo offices in January and another city-wide attack in November, and was hit ''again'' in 2017. Following these three tragedies, especially November 2015 attack, the games become very dark to watch. And the date of the attacks in ''Battlefield 3'' was ''November 13, 2014'' -- exactly one year before the city-wide attacks.

* A hidden audio file in ''VideoGame/MetroidPrime3Corruption'' has then-Nintendo President Creator/SatoruIwata lament that no one seems to believe he's taking his role as head of the company seriously, as he doesn't appear to be physically affected by the stress of the job. Fast-forward to 2015, where Iwata died due to surgical complications with a bile duct growth. In the months prior to his death, fans could see him physically deteriorating in each new NintendoDirect as a result of his tumor and the stress of running Nintendo during a financially rough period.

** In ''Investigations 2'', it's a RunningGag for everyone to call Sebastian an idiot. Even Larry, the resident dumbass does this. This loses all the fun after case 4 showcasing that [[spoiler:calling him an idiot is the main form of abuse he suffers from his father. At the climax of the case, his father gladly tells the whole room about how he bought Sebastian's teachers and judges to give him good grades and that he is even more idiot than he thought for not realizing, leading to a WellDoneSonGuy like him to dash out crying out of the room, which leads him to be kidnapped by his father's men]].

* The obscure, mediocre Taito shmup ''[[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Master_of_Weapon Master of Weapon]]'' not only states in the opening crawl that it is set on "September 11, 199X", but, more eerily, features several couples of skyscrapers that can be shot and will crumble in a cloud of dust.

* The re-recording of [[Music/MotorHead Ace of Spades]] included in [[VideoGame/RockBand Rock Band 2]] and [[VideoGame/GuitarHero Guitar Hero Metallica]] changes the lyric "I don't wanna live forever, and don't forget the joker" to "I don't wanna live forever, that's right babe, but apparently I am". This became very uncomfortable after frontman Lemmy Kilmister's death from prostate cancer in December 2015.

* Iris's death scene in ''VideoGame/MegaManX4'' was sad to begin with, but following Creator/YukoMizutani's untimely death might make this a bit harder to watch.

* ''VideoGame/KnightsOfTheOldRepublic'' has a bucketful if you've played ''VideoGame/StarWarsTheOldRepublic''. That HopeSpot (and lightside boost) on Taris with those Outcasts? Yeah, instead of a quick death by orbital bombardment, you instead condemned the lot to be picked off by disease, rakghouls, starvation, and finished off with toxic waste. Playing the "canonical" option as a Light Side Male with a Bastila romance? Well, your character [[someoneToRememberHimBy knocks Bastila up]], has a Force vision about the HumanoidAbomination Sith Emperor, and runs off to try and stop it, leaving their friends and loved ones behind ''without so much as a holocron warning them about the threat or telling them why you had to leave.'' They spend the rest of their lives waiting and you never return. Even worse is if you go canon with the sequel, which is already running on this Trope. Exile hooks up with Revan, they try to take on the Emperor. [[KarmaHoudini Lord Scourge]] literally stabs Exile InTheBack, Revan ends up with the same fate Malak put all those Jedi in, then goes insane and tries to commit genocide of anyone with a ''trace'' of Sith blood before the ''Imperials'' save the galaxy by putting him out of his misery. Canderous's people become vassals of the Sith again (with those who followed his teachings hunted down by the Imperials), and the Sith charge in and lay waste to half the Republic anyway - so everything in both games turned out to be near-completely pointless. [[spoiler: And Revan's final fate is to become a crazed cult leader trying to ''resurrect'' the aforementioned Emperor, and is finally put down like a rabid mutt by an EnemyMine coalition of characters from both factions - including, for irony's sake, ''two'' of his descendants.]]
