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.

** In ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'', each of the main characters has their own personal exploration skill, and Noctis' involves fishing.



* ''SummonNight: Swordcraft Story 2'' has this as minigame. You can gain points which can be traded for hard to find items.

* 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.
