* ''[[VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2SonsOfLiberty Metal Gear Solid 2]]'' parodied itself at one point by having one of the on-disc [[AllThereInTheManual supplementary story recaps]] being a book written by the [[UnreliableNarrator most hilariously deranged conspiracy theorist]] you could possibly imagine. (To give you an idea; we don't get to read it, but the title of his previous book was ''Rays From The Loch Ness Monster -- The True Power Source Of [=UFOs=]''.) To his credit, he was extremely good at ''identifying'' conspiracies -- unfortunately, he never blamed the events on the ''right'' conspiracies, attributing TheOmniscientCouncilOfVagueness-caused disaster of the previous game to the island it was on being "an Ellis Island for the Greys". The whole farce ends with him being rescued by an invisible man whom he proudly, loudly declares is a noble SufficientlyAdvancedAlien who had taken pity on him, when it's clear to the reader that it's Solid Snake in [[InvisibilityCloak active camo]].

* ''Franchise/MetalGear'' has sentient AI, top-secret government black projects, the FBI and CIA, clones, zombie cyborgs, [=UMAs=], psychics, ghosts, Communists, coverups around every corner, and also references sillier content like aliens building the pyramids and the fate of a man who went into a cave and emerged a decade later not having aged.

* ''Franchise/AssassinsCreed'' rapidly became an amalgamation of all sorts of conspiracy theories, incorporating everything from the Tunguska Event to JFK's assassination to ''the entirety of World War II'' and tracing them all back to the Templars, the Assassins or both trying to cover up or seize something or other. It's not exactly necessary to understand how it all fits together to make any sense of the plot, fortunately, because any attempt to do so is doomed to failure, particularly when [[SufficientlyAdvancedAlien time travelling god aliens]] get involved. Generally it's best to simply accept that the Assassins and Templars have been at each other's throats for a really long time and move on. Gets especially crazy and paranoia-inducing in ''VideoGame/AssassinsCreedBrotherhood''. Alan Turing? Murdered to prevent him from inventing too powerful computers. Cable TV? A method for transmitting brainwave altering signals and monitoring citizens. Cell tower surveillance? Tracking all communication.
** These conspiracy tropes are largely used as metaphor and window dressing, and the crux of the games are mostly a skewed retelling of historical facts. Indeed the point of these games is to show how difficult and damn near impossible behind-the-scenes control over history actually is. At times the Assassins and the Templars don't have a lot to do with why certain things happened (in Brotherhood the two fight a proxy war that gets out of both of their control and tears Italy apart; in III they both back the same side in the American Revolution and mostly just fight each other as the war rages in the background so their influence over the new nation pretty much cancels out).

* In ''Conspiracies'', RepairmanJack attends a ConspiracyTheorist '''convention'''. Subverted in that [[spoiler: there really is a conspiracy happening behind the scenes ... but it's against Jack himself, not anything the convention's attendees dreamed up.]]

* The "artwork" of David Dees, hilariously surreal composites of edited stock photos which often feature more than one conspiracy at a time. The farther you go, the more contradictions you notice, and then it becomes clear that he probably [[AgentMulder believes them all]].
