* Older arcade games and games that are [[AWinnerIsYou too lazy to give you a special victory screen]] will simply show you the standard game over screen if you just beat the game. Because of course, your game is over in that situation, too. To modern gamers it can be rather jarring to see a screen associated with death being used to indicate success, especially if the music is still there...

You ran out of [[HitPoints hit points]]. You lost your last life. The character [[EscortMission you're supposed to protect]] has stumbled off a cliff face. Your [[VideoGame/{{Pokemon}} mons]] have all fainted.

This trope is too ubiquitous for a proper examples list; we'd be here all month if we tried. Examples go in the [[Quotes/GameOver Quotes section]].

Of course, if you're really lucky, the GameOver screen will simply read FissionMailed or the game will [[HopelessBossFight let you continue anyway]].

* Certain circumstances (covered in {{Unwinnable}}) don't technically result in a GameOver, but prevent you from continuing further into the game.

In the earliest games, you had to start over from the very beginning, but later games provided a password so you could continue from a later spot, and eventually game saves to fulfill the same purpose more conveniently. Some games also let you 'continue' from the same level you were previously on. Indeed, the GameOver has been such an {{Omnipresent Trope|s}} that some games use the phrase whenever you have in some way failed, even if this failure does not in any conceivable way end your game.

Some games will even give you a GameOver screen even if you complete the game, using "Game Over" in a literal sense, as since you've beaten the game, it is now over.
