** SilentHills PT goes with good old HideoKojima's FissionMailed style -- your game may glitch out and restart from time to time. Except you are actually progressing.

* ''VideoGame/Puppetshow 8: The Face of Humanity'' has a rather creepy one after you break into David and Hannah's workshop with newspaper headlines stating that the detective died of poison, the mayor's daughter was never found and "IT'S ALL YOUR FAULT," followed by two decrepit, insect-ridden puppets with David and Hannah's faces.

* Many, many times in the ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' series. In one especially egregious case in the third game, winning the trial comes down to pressing a single statement in a particularly drawn-out testimony. Any selection you make leads to Godot informing you that you've failed to find anything substantive -- but if you figured out the right one, Phoenix will point out the contradiction a few moments later.
-->'''Judge''': [[LampshadeHanging What is with you people? Can't I hand down my verdicts in peace anymore?]]
** The particular case in the first game, with the Game Over sequence, the ''only'' indication that you're supposed to let the Guilty verdict continue is that you weren't penalized. In fact, if you haven't been penalized at all, it will seem ''very'' weird, as the judge doesn't give you another chance, and you don't lose one of your markers. Also, the fact that you ''can't do anything to prevent the supposed Game Over''. For someone playing through the first time, these vague indications are ''very easily'' overlooked. Unless you've failed before. One indicator is that, during the Judge's typical spiel, it cuts to Wright, who sweats and says something like "This doesn't look good... I'm sorry..."
** Also in the first game, while not a GameOver itself, there is a point in the 5th case where after failing to find something to convince the Judge about your points, he is ready to penalize you and your life marks show up (it could be a Game Over if you only had one mark left and the penalty was issued) to make it seem like he was for real. Cue in someone who prevents this from happening.
** Another one in the first game comes in the second case. At one point the player has the choice to either take up Maya's case, or to just leave and go home. Picking to "go home", leads into a black screen with sad music, where Phoenix narrates how Maya was defended the following day by a state appointed lawyer, the case was a white wash against her, she was declared guilty, and he never saw Maya again, as the case remained unsolved forever. ...It then reveals this was just a scenario Phoenix was imagining,. [[ButThouMust He declares that he's not going to let it happen, and takes the case.]]
** There's also a fake GameOver in the 3rd game in the 3rd case where it shows Phoenix losing his case to Winston Payne, his client getting a guilty verdict, and the courtroom doors closing. Given that it's the opening {{cutscene}} and you haven't even touched the controls yet, this isn't fooling anyone. [[spoiler:You find out later on that it was actually someone who was impersonating Phoenix when the guilty verdict was issued.]]
** Another example is from ''[[VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorneySpiritOfJustice Spirit of Justice]]'' Case 3; at the end of the first trial day[[spoiler:, Phoenix cannot disprove Nahyuta's argument. He knows that Maya is innocent but there is no information and evidence that can prove her innocence and the Judge finds her and Phoenix Wright (via Defense Culpability Act) Guilty. Before he passes judgement, the bailiff interrupts to point out a second victim and that Maya is the suspect of that murder as well. This gives one more day of investigation to turn everything around.]]

*** When you're required to give the last piece of evidence in "Bridge to the Turnabout", it won't matter what you present -- Godot will say that he doesn't know what you're talking about, followed by an instant GameOver if you presented the wrong one or Mia's brief mirage if you gave the right one. Because you only have one chance to present your proof, players have an enormous tendency to do SaveScumming at this point, only for them to facepalm themselves and even yell at the game for fooling them '''''big time''''' at the climax of the trial.

** ''Borderlands 2'' is very straight-forward at this in one very specific moment. [[spoiler:Kill Yourself. No, seriously, it is a mission given by Handsome Jack. He has choosen a spot for you to suicide and gives you the choice of doing or not. It's hilarious, regardless of the outcome.]]

* The second mission of ''VideoGame/CallOfDutyAdvancedWarfare'' sees you and your [[PrivateMilitaryContractors Atlas]] squad tasked with rescuing the US President from a group of terrorist kidnappers. At the end of the mission, you and the President reach an armored car, but your bionic arm malfunctions before you can open it and a terrorist knocks you to the floor, shoots the President in the head, and takes aim at you... whereupon you find out it's just a VR simulation. Notably, once your arm gets fixed, you get to run the simulation again, and this time you succeed.
