* A staple in ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series from ''Morrowind'' onward:
** ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind'' lets you get your first bearings in Seyda Neen: a small fisher village notable almost exclusively for hosting what appears to be the only Imperial customs checkpoint on the Vvardenfell island.
** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'', Chorrol is a slightly bigger version than usual, but it tends to become the First Town for most players, thanks to its proximity to the Weynon Priory--the first location you have to visit in the course of the main quest after escaping from the Imperial City dungeons.
** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim'', Riverwood fits the classic version. Its a small sleepy town with minor quests and depending on how you got there, an NPC who will hook you up with some free starting gear. Whiterun might be a better fit over all being the first hold the player likely goes to likely being the first place the player will become a Thane and having the cheapest player home.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' has [[VideoGame/PokemonRedAndBlue Pallet Town]], [[VideoGame/PokemonGoldAndSilver New Bark Town]], [[VideoGame/PokemonRubyAndSapphire Littleroot Town]], [[VideoGame/PokemonDiamondAndPearl Twinleaf Town]], and [[VideoGame/PokemonBlackAndWhite Nuvema Town]]. The general design for the ''Pokémon'' variant of the First Town is Hero's home, Rival's home, Pokémon Lab, and Professor's home (sometimes the same as the Rival's). Typically, the other towns will have at least five buildings. Also, for some reason, the First Towns each have a resident fat guy who raves about [[TechnologyMarchesOn technology]].
** ''VideoGame/PokemonBlack2AndWhite2'' subverts this: for the first time ever, the starting town, Aspertia City, is actually a ''city'', and quite a large one at that. [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking Oh, and it actually has a Pokémon Center.]] It's also the first starting town with a Gym.
** Vaniville Town in ''VideoGame/PokemonXAndY'' is more like the earlier ones.

** Kakariko Village in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild''. While you don't start off there as with the previous examples, nor do you even ''have'' to visit it before other towns, it's still the first place you're directed to go toward after the opening Great Plateau section, and you also get more clarification there on what you need to do to defeat Calamity Ganon and restore the Sheikah Slate's functions.

** Luxerion in ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII''. It's the first town (if you don't count the short prologue in Yusnaan) you visit, and the locals here are the biggest fans of your new divine boss Bhunivelze. This is the only town with trains that go to ALL THREE of the other locales (the other stations are more limited), and it's also the setting for the the events that lead up to the end.
