* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' allows you to go fishing with a rod in order to initiate wild Pokemon battles and capture Water Pokemon. Later games do, however, introduce timing as a measure of whether you'll be successful.

* ''Franchise/{{Pokemon}}'' allows you to go fishing with a rod in order to initiate wild Pokemon battles and capture Water Pokemon. In early installments you have no real control; the process is "use fishing rod, wait a few seconds, game randomly decides whether you caught a Pokemon or not, repeat." Later games do, however, introduce timing as a measure of whether you'll be successful.

* ''[[VideoGame/TheSims The Sims 2: Seasons]]'' includes Fishing as an activity your sims can perform, along with a skill badge that (somehow) affects the quality of fish you catch. The Sims 3 is supposed to have fishing in it as well. This is [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/High-level high level]], so no mini-game.

Many video games are made in Japan, and one of Japan's leading food industries is fishing. This is a culture where squid and octopus are seen as delicious daily treats on a level with a McDonald's, so fishing is pretty ingrained into the culture. So if the video game you are playing is SideQuest-ish and MiniGame-ish enough, it ''will'' have a fishing minigame. [[ExactlyWhatItSaysOnTheTin Fishing Games]] on the other hand have this as the major goal.

* This is heavily present in both ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfHeroesTrailsOfColdSteel'' and its sequel, though the general mechanic works exactly the same in both. You're introduced to it through Kenneth Lakelord of the noble Lakelord family, and through it the game's protagonist, Rean Schwarzer, is an honorary member of the Fishing Club. There's a Trophy in both games for catching all fish and various other rewards besides. Fishing spots are found throughout pretty much all of the areas you travel to.
