* ''VideoGame/{{X-COM}}'': The various aliens in the game series are generally set on utterly destroying humanity. The infiltration method they attempt in the first game was merely a tactic toward the goal of total destruction.

* ''{{Achron}}'': The game starts immediately after the greatest space fleet humanity has ever assembled has been all but completely destroyed by the alien invaders. They did this despite actually being outnumbered and outgunned by the human forces. It turns out that TimeTravel actually gives you a hell of an advantage.

* ''{{Gungrave}}'': A race of parasitic aliens called "Methuselah" came to the planet eons ago and just wanted to infect all living things with the substance that the main characters know as the designer drug called "Seed". It turns humans and animals into mindless mutants subservient to the alien consciousness. It was these beings that manipulated and corrupted Harry in the original game, provided the technology that created the Necrolization Project, and gave Garino, the BigBad of ''Overdose'', power beyond imagination. Garino was even planning to leave the planet to continue spreading seed.

* ''Franchise/{{Halo}}'': The Covenant attack Earth colonies before finally taking the fight to Earth. In order to ''prevent'' an alien invasion, all ships that are losing a battle are commanded to wipe their memory banks and ''self-destruct'', denying the aliens knowledge of human colony locations, as well as Earth. In the end the Covenant find Earth anyway [[spoiler: though they were looking for something else]], but this particular strategy allowed humanity to fight for years, when otherwise they would have been defeated in weeks or months.

** ''VideoGame/XCOMEnemyUnknown'' (2012) changes things up a bit. The aliens are still invading, but world domination or the extinction of humanity are not their goals this time around. [[spoiler: They're actually ''testing'' humanity to see if we can A) survive their limited but devastating onslaught and B) see if we can develop PsychicPowers, and thus join the Ethereals as equals.]]

Earth is now firmly in alien hands, and what remains of XCOM is now LaResistance, attempting to get the remaining population of Earth to rise up.

** The homeworld of Bug Facers was at one point invaded by an alien species. The Bug Facers won, but the invasion left them with a deep, species-wide paranoia where extraterrestrial species were concerned.
** The Gravital are [[OmnicidalManiac Omnicidal Maniacs]] who want to destroy all other intelligent life in the galaxy. [[spoiler: Their extreme level of technological advancement made wiping out most of the other human species trivially easy.]]
