* The ending of ''VideoGame/AffordableSpaceAdventures'' has the player send a final desperate message to Uexplore informing them of their situation. [[spoiler:It turns out nobody is currently in the Uexplore building, and the message is left unread alongside numerous others, all sent by other players.]] Unfortunately, the act of sending the message (and retaining those of other players) employed the UsefulNotes/WiiU's Miiverse functionality, so once the service shut down in November 2017, the act of sending a final plea for help [[spoiler:became equally futile and unacknowledged in reality]].

* [[http://29.media.tumblr.com/tumblr_lfpdxafEQ51qc7etro1_400.jpg This promotional poster]] from ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask''. Reads "the end is coming October 26". Majora's Mask released October 26, 2000, which was less than a year prior to the Trade Center attack.

* The ElectronicArts game ''[[VideoGame/DesertStrike Urban Strike]]'' was set in the year 2001, according to the intro. A cutscene in which Malone's laser fires and blows up part of the World Trade Center is shown right before the seventh campaign, which takes place in New York City. When you reach your destination in the mission to rescue the survivors, there is a huge smouldering hole in the side of one of the towers. If you fail the mission by incorrectly defusing the bombs that have been set in the towers, the whole thing comes crashing down. The fact that [[ConspiracyTheorist some crackpots do believe that placed explosives brought down the Twin Towers]] makes this even harsher. [[OlderThanTheyThink It originally came out in 1994]], a bit TooSoon after the 1993 car bomb attack.

* During the years between the release of the Katawa Shoujo demo and the full game coming out, an ''enormous'' amount of the Hanako centered fanfics followed the formula of "[character] comforts Hanako, protecting her, cuddling her and tells her she's beautiful, and Hanako falls in love with them forever." Cue Hanako's route from the game, which revolves around [[spoiler: an absolutely deconstruction of that very same idea, showing that this type of behavior would cause terrible emotional damage to both parties involved.]] The fanfic writers had a lot of painful introspection to do.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/SpiderManEdgeOfTime'':
** Part of the game's plot involves Peter dying and coming back from the dead--something he'd experience a couple of years later with the events of ''ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan''
** Likewise, part of the plot of the game is [[MegaCorp Alchemax]] being fpunded years before it should've been. Part of the finale for ''ComicBook/SuperiorSpiderMan'' features Alchemax being formed earlier than it was before.
** Miguel telling Mary Jane that her and Peter would stay together in light of the game being released a years years after ''ComicBook/OneMoreDay''.

It's not actually meant to be the World Trade Center however, but Nakatomi Plaza from [[Film/DieHard the film]], which was filmed at Fox Plaza in Los Angeles.
