* ExaggeratedTrope in SuperPaperMario. Your first choice of the game is whether you will accept the challenge of saving the world. If you say no three times, you don't save the world and automatically get a Game Over.

* Spoofed in ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'', where you're almost immediately thrust into the role of President and asked if you want to sign either a bill for curing cancer or a bill for ending world hunger. In a game that has absolutely nothing to do with either issue.
** Not to mention the fact that once the aliens attack(no more then five minutes later) nobody actually cares what choice you made. Same thing with the other choices you're given around the same time(Where to punch an annoying Politician and whether you will hang out with Nyteblade's actor or blow him off).

* Spoofed in ''VideoGame/SaintsRowIV'', where immediately after the tutorial you're almost immediately thrust into the role of President and asked if President. During your walk to a press conference, your Veep gives you want to sign either the option between pushing a bill for curing cancer or a bill one for ending world hunger. In hunger, a game that has absolutely nothing to do confrontation with either issue.
** Not
a cranky Congressman lets you choose whether to mention [[TalkToTheFist "punch a dick in the fact that once the aliens attack(no more then five minutes later) nobody actually cares what choice you made. Same thing with the other choices you're given around the same time(Where to punch head"]] or [[GroinAttack "punch a dickhead,"]] and finally an annoying Politician and whether actor asks if you will want to hang out with Nyteblade's actor or blow him off). and watch ''[[ShowWithinAShow Nyteblade]]'' later. Absolutely none of this matters because in the very next cutscene, aliens attack Earth and abduct you, putting you into the [[LotusEaterMachine computer simulation]] you'll spend the rest of the game trying to escape from.

* At the start of ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' you choose whether to follow Jude or Milla's story. This affects whose 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.]]

* At the start of ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid3SnakeEater'', the player will be asked to choose their favorite 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.

* In ''VisualNovel/ReflectionsOnTheRiver'', the first choice players make is whether to abduct Prince Shun or Princess Yanyu. This sets the game down completely different paths. (However, the result of the choice itself is flipped by the non-chosen character saying TakeMeInstead, so you end up going down the path of whichever you didn't select).

* In the ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' series, your choice of starter Pokémon determines your rival's starter as well: if you choose the Grass-Type starter, he'll choose the Fire-Type; the Fire-Type starter, the Water-Type; and the Water-Type starter, the Grass-Type (i.e. whichever you choose, he gets the one that's strong against it). Yellow is an exception: there, your starter is always the Electric-Type Pikachu, and your rival's Eevee will evolve into Vaporeon (weak against Electric), Flareon (neutral against Electric), or Jolteon (strong against Electric) depending on how often you lose to him. Your rival's starter (or his starter's final form) will also determine his final team. Some of the later games have another rival character who gets the remaining Pokémon (the one that is weaker to yours).

* The very first thing the player must do in ''VideoGame/{{Spore}}'' is decide whether his character should be a herbivore or carnivore.

* The very first thing the player must do in ''VideoGame/{{Spore}}'' is decide whether his character should be a herbivore or carnivore. It is possible to reverse this choice during the cell stage by swapping mouths, but once the cell stage is over you're stuck with it. The choice of herbivore, carnivore, or omnivore determines which mouths you can use in creature stage.

* In the WebSerialNovel ''Literature/DreamHighSchool'' readers get to make some big decisions off the bat, but one of the first ones that has evident repercussions throughout the rest of the story is joking to somebody who hardly knows you that your name is Grok, Destroyer of Worlds. They believe you, and it becomes your [[EmbarrassingNickname well-known nickname]].
