* Halfway through the first season of ''Podcast/{{TANIS}}'', a recurring segment of a woman reading from the journal of an expedition to the titular Tanis begins. The journal chronicles the strange events and occurrences throughout the trip, never referring to anyone in the expedition by names, only titles: The Runner, the Novelist, the Zealot, and the Witness, who's writing the journal. The season finale reveals that [[spoiler: the Witness is the show's host, Nic Silver]].

* ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'' has ''lots''. Some of the most memorable:
** A journal found in Azuna written by the tauren Paladin Aponi Brightmane details how she and her comrades have fought the Burning Legion for days, only to fail. The final entry claims they've been captured and are about to be dragged through a portal to the Legion's hellish domain. (A subversion, as she still lives, and can be rescued and recruited.)
** In Sumar, a journal left by Arcanist Kel'danath, a Nightfallen mage, details his attempts to find a cure for the Nightfallen's condition. While he came very close to success, the Legion's initial invasion ruined his research, and the last entry suggests he is about to succumb to his addiction and become withered. (Which is exactly what happened; when the player actually find him, he is a mindless husk of what he once was. However, his work was not in vain, because the player can bring it to the other Nightfallen to continue and improve it.)

* Sierra's ''VideoGame/SpaceQuest V: The Next Mutation'' has this as Roger Wilco pokes around in Genetix, finding around what causes the BodyHorror disease he has been witness of, explained in the scientist logs. Pretty chilling when combined to the creepy background music, and when you realize they dumped this vicious mutagen where they could dispose of it, by bribing high-ranking [=StarCon=] officers.

After he did so a cow-like humanoid appeared out of the maze, killed him and ate him. The man left a diary describing his increasing compulsion to build the maze and worship the being who would appear from it.

** SCP-370 has Incident-370-A, a personal log written by the Foundation doctor in charge of the expedition that found SCP-370. It details the progressive infection and death of expedition personnel caused by SCP-370's influence. Although he had been infected himself, he managed to use a ritual (which required 80% of his blood supply) to contain it. It ends with a ThatWasTheLastEntry that breaks off in mid-sentence.
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-772 SCP-772 ("Giant Parasitoid Wasps")]]. The scientist who discovered the wasps kept a journal. It details how he found a body filled with wasp larvae, let them hatch and contained them, and how they escaped, attacked and implanted eggs in him. It ends with a ThatWasTheLastEntry of him cutting himself open so the larvae could escape.
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-827 SCP-827 ("The Soup")]]. Dr. George Farrow was suffering from cancer and had less than six months to live. He tried to cure himself with stem cell therapy and ended up changing himself into a mass of protoplasm.
** [[http://scp-wiki.net/scp-930 SCP-930 ("Seagull Island")]]. One of the survivors of the wreck of the U.S.S. Kete kept a journal of his experiences. One by one the other 18 survivors vanished in the night, apparently just walking away. The remaining survivors sometimes found the bodies hanging in the trees, but none of the others ever came back. The last survivor saw glimpses of something in the bushes that was worse than anything he'd ever seen.
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1811 SCP-1811 ("Shelf Life")]]. SCP-1811's previous owner, Adrian Balswell, kept a diary explaining how he discovered and experimented with it. It ends with a ThatWasTheLastEntry about how he was going to burn one of the books in SCP-1811. Only the burnt cover of the book was found - Adrian Balswell had disappeared.
** [[http://www.scp-wiki.net/scp-1983 SCP-1983 ("Doorway to Nowhere")]] is an extensive one, left by one of the many agents sent inside,, the last one left alive when he wrote it. It details what he saw, how the creatures he saw inside work and reproduce, and what he thinks may work to take them down, punctuated with several hopeless statements. He finishes saying he'd leave the report where it could be found, and then make sure the creatures wouldn't be able to use his heart for their nest. [[spoiler:When they finally found the note, the SCP had been neutralized, but it's certain the one who did the deed had found the note]].
