** Though you don't get to actually play the character as a god (or, at least, there aren't any rules for it).
** An older edition had the "Immortals Rules", which are exactly that, although the word "god" was never uttered to avoid the wrath of the MoralGuardians.
** First edition's ''Deities and Demigods'' provided two things: stats for various pantheons (Greek, Egyptian, Norse), and rules for building your own deities. Along with suggestions for how to get your PC party into godhood/keep the game running afterwards.

* In virtually any superhero game that allows custom characters, you could theoretically play any member of any pantheon in the world. Case in point, when playing with stock characters, you can play Thor or Hercules just for starters. And in DC, you could be Orion or Lightray if you want.

Added DiffLines:

* ''TabletopGame/HeroesUnlimited'' has a chapter in the ''Powers Unlimited 2'' sourcebook specifically for immortals of all sorts, including demigods and godlings (lesser types of gods). In addition there's the sort-of-compatible ''TabletopGame/{{Rifts}}'' book ''Pantheons of the Megaverse'' which presents the two character types as an add-on for other game lines.

** ''Dawn Of War 2'' more or less confirms this, since your units in campaign mode are apparently responding to orders from your HeroicMime Force Commander. Played straighter in ''Retribution'', where all units go back to referring to the player as their CO.

* In ''{{Summoner}} 2'', you are the Child of Prophecy, the Divine Queen, and about as close to being a goddess as you can get without living in Heaven. You rule a kingdom, have your own temple, and people build huge statues in your honor. You also have some wicked powers, of course...
