* Creator/BlizzardEntertainment games (''Franchise/{{Starcraft}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Diablo}}'', ''VideoGame/{{Warcraft}}'', ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'') are full of Flavor Text. One particularly noteworthy example in ''Starcraft II: Wings of Liberty'' is the Armory level of your CoolShip. Precisely one object in the room (the console where you buy upgrades) actually ''does'' anything; the rest is an excuse to [[ShootTheMoney show off the high-res versions]] of your units and give blurbs about their background.

*** ** ''Videogame/TheSims2'': Celebration! Stuff



Your birthday, as a child, is the one day you look forward to more than any other, but as you age it acts as a reminder of just how old you really are. If it's not your friends heckling and teasing, it's that cake with one more candle squeeeeeeezed onto that little surface each year. The way we figure, if a cake is going to make you feel bad for being a year older, at least it will taste fantastic!

* VideoGame/EVEOnline has a great deal of flavor text on items, organizations, even regions of space. Very little of it is of any consequence, but there's thousands of words worth of fluff to take in if you "Show InfO" on just about anything in the game.

''VideoGame/{{Drakengard}}'' has a short story for each of its (65!) weapons.
65 weapons:
*** Apostate's Misery: Poleaxe:
----> Level 1: There was once a wind spirit who fell in love with a mortal man. Though it was against all the laws of her race, each day she allowed her love and passion to grow.
----> Level 2: The spirit was condemned to death for the betrayal of her race. The Lord of Spirits sent vassals to carry out the sentence, armed with a bardiche enchanted to slay spirits.
----> Level 3: Sensing that her life was in danger, the spirit made one last visit to the man she loved, then fled through the forests and seas and mountains, pursued all the while by her would-be executioners.
----> Level 4: Some years later, a healthy young boy was seen playing around the village. This remarkable boy could control the very winds. His father never told him who his mother was...
*** Butcher's Joy: Cleaver (Sword):
----> Level 1: Juices oozing from tender, succulent flesh, the sweet aroma of fine herbs... The master cook made dishes of meat that none in the city could resist.
----> Level 2: Every day, customers lined up outside his inn, waiting for their chance to partake. Even the king himself would sneak down from his castle to sample the master's art.
----> Level 3: But once he entered his kitchen, the smiling cook's face would grow stern. The meat he used was no ordinary meat...
----> Level 4: The years passed, and the cook and his inn disappeared from the town. But his cleaver remains as gleaming and sharp as ever, waiting for its next master.
** ''Franchise/Drakengard2'':
*** Apostate's Misery: Poleaxe:
----> Level 1: The young man was popular with everyone in the village. He had the ability to control the wind, and was often seen flying over rivers and valleys. He was a cheerful boy, though he always seemed be troubled by something.
----> Level 2: Several years later, his father passed away. Before he died, he told his son about the young man’s mother, whom his son had learned never to mention in his presence.
----> Level
3: “Go to the place marked on the map.” said his father. As if guided by a spirit, the young man took up his scythe and left, carried by the wind.
----> How long had he been traveling? Over the forests, oceans and mountain Ranges he flew. Exhausted and frail, He came at last to a village.
----> Level 4: The chief of the village welcomed the young man and told him that the scythe he was carrying had once belonged to the village. Just then, a beautiful woman entered the room. The young man knew at once that she was his mother. From that day forth, he helped keep peace between humans and wind spirits. The scythe was never used again.

* ''Videogame/FireEmblemHeroes:'' When on the home screen, various characters that the player has randomly unlocked will be standing around and can be interacted with, where they'll give a few lines about their past, their homeland, or their deep feelings about something. None of this is referenced anywhere else in-game, nor does it have an effect on gameplay; it's merely for fleshing out character personalities.
