* Fishing makes up a MiniGame for most of the ''BreathOfFire'' games. At one point, if you get a strong enough rod, you can actually snag treasure chests, or even fish-creatures named Manillos, who sell you stuff and usually [[YourMoneyIsNoGoodHere charge you fish]].

** VideoGame/UltimaOnline has a full regular skill for fishing.
** VideoGame/EverQuest lets you fish, but tries its hardest to avoid letting to make money off it.
** The 1.8 patch for Rift added a new Fishing skill and a companion Survival skill. You can make cakes with some of the fish.

* ''VideoGame/TheSims: Castaway'' for the [=PS2=], PSP and DS all have fishing "mini-games". On the [=PS2=] your sim stands next to a school of fish with a spear, then has to wait for a fish to jump into the air in order to stab a fish. On the DS the scene actually changes to a mini-game where you stab the fish with your stylus. Not sure about the PSP version.

* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy Fables: ChocobosDungeon'' allows you to catch fish. Your storage increases each time you bring a species to the fat chocobo who holds your items for the first time; any others are VendorTrash.

* Fishing rods are used for two purposes in ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}''. One is to pull mobs; the other is to fish. All bodies of water, even ones you make yourself, contain fish; you fish by throwing out your line and waiting for the bobber to go down. Once you have fishing rods, water, and a suitable supply of sticks and string to replace your rods, your food problems are solved. Version 1.7.2 ("The Update that Changed the World", released October 25, 2013) greatly expanded fishing by adding in multiple types of fish as well as making it so that the player can fish up treasures (such as enchanted items) or junk (like a pair of leather boots).

[[caption-width-right:300:[[SidetrackedByTheGoldSaucer Good job on catching that fish]]. [[SavingTheWorld Now get back to work!]]]]

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 UsefulNotes/McDonalds, 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.

Fishing minigames are often {{luck based mission}}s, much to players' annoyance. Especially when fish [[FishingForSole aren't the only thing you can catch]].

** ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess'' has one too, and is even more elaborate than the one in ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]].'' You also get a regular fishing rod without a reel as an item that you can use at any time, which eventually comes in handy in order to complete a certain quest.

* ''VideoGame/SamuraiWarriors'' ''Spirit of Sanada'' adds a fishing minigame as one of the new things you can do instead of beating up waves of mooks. The fish can be used for item crafting or given to other characters as gifts.

* ''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/TheSims2 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.
