* ''VideoGame/AnimalCrossing'', all versions. Some people on the AXA board would go so far as to say that fishing for coelacanths on rainy nights, along with [[VendorTrash selling the fish]] and spending the money on furniture, is the main game in AC and everything else is the side-quest. One member there claims to have bought a 1.4 million bell mansion after five to seven nights of fishing, compared to the more typical two months of growing fruit. Of course, there are NoCartoonFish, but there are cartoon frogs and octopodes. Along with regular frogs and octopodes. One can be your friendly neighbors, and the other you feed alive to a fat walrus for wallpaper. Frog and Octopus neighbors may ask you to catch a fish for them (to eat), to which you can respond by giving them a frog or octopus you fished out of the water. They have no problem eating it.



* All ''VideoGame/HarvestMoon'' games feature this trope as a fairly enjoyable but not particularly essential side activity. Occasionally fishing may trigger rewards or bonuses in the game. In ''The Island that Grows with You'' (a.k.a. ''Island of Happiness''), catching and shipping 50 fish is the only way to get a certain character to move in.

* ''The Sims: 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/{{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.
