* ''VideoGame/TacticsOgreTheKnightOfLodis'' is nasty about this one. Not only does the big choice determine Alphonse's loyalties and the path the story takes, but it looks ''completely innocuous''. It's about the third choice you make (with the previous two being yes or no to recruiting a character), it's simply whether Alphonse quietly accepts Cybil's plan or voices his opinion, while ostensibly going along either way. Unless you play the game again or look at a guide, you could reasonably have no idea the decision did anything at all.

Radiant Historia - actually a subversion
* In ''VideoGame/RadiantHistoria'', one of your earliest decisions is whether to stay with Heiss in Special Intelligence, or join your friend Rosch in his new brigade. Due to the [[TimeTravel nat]][[AlternateHistory ure]] of the game, of course, the paths are not ''truly'' mutually exclusive, and because of some [[TimeyWimeyBall interplay]] between the two diverging timelines, it is not only possible but ''necessary'' to experience both.

[[folder:TurnBasedStrategy]] * ''Videogame/FireEmblemFates'' builds its entire premise on this. The protagonist is a ChildOfTwoWorlds, born into the royal family of [[{{Wutai}} Hoshido]] but raised by the royal family of [[AlwaysNight Nohr]]. The two kingdoms are at war, and shortly into the game the protagonist has to choose a side to support. Which side they choose affects the story so drastically it branches into ''[[OneGameForThePriceOfTwo two separate games!]]'' And there's a downloadable third route where they side with neither, which branches into a ''third'' storyline. Each has a completley different set of chapters and recruitable characters. [[/folder]]

* At the start of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'', the player will be asked to choose their favourite game in the series. Picking ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' makes Snake's stamina decrease more slowly; picking ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty'' starts the player wearing the Raikov mask in the very first cutscene; and picking ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'' unlocks a "Peep Theatre" cutscene. This choice has no impact on the story, however.

* At the start of ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' you choose whether to follow Jude or Milla's story. This affects who's perspective you see when the party splits up, and each story has several exclusive events and bosses. At one point, Jude travels through [[SlippySlideyIceWorld an ice themed dungeon]] while Milla takes on a [[LethalLavaLand lava-themed one]], for example. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking They also get different battle music.]]

This affects two things right away (how much money you start with and which career paths you can accept) and will impact your overall earning potential for the remainder of the game (which ultimately influences your retirement options). ---
