* ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'' has you, after going to all the worlds and finding all the pages, go back to [[spoiler:the location you started at, specifically, the dock marker switch so you can retrieve the final page and complete the game.]]

to:

* The ''VideoGame/{{Myst}}'' has this as a recurring theme, related to its use of {{Hub Level}}s. Often you'll encounter something early in the game that you won't fully understand the importance of until the end, when you need to use it.
** The first game
has you, after going to all the worlds and finding all the pages, go back to [[spoiler:the location you started at, specifically, the dock marker switch so you can retrieve the final page and complete the game.]]


Added DiffLines:

** In ''VideoGame/MystIIIExile'', getting back to the relative safety of Tomahna is the goal of the game.
** ''VideoGame/UruAgesBeyondMyst'' has you collect four totems that represent the pieces of a captive's soul; then you have to go back to where you found them to free the soul. At the end, you are sent back to the first zone in the game, the Cleft, to receive your reward.
** The expansion of ''Uru'', ''The Path of the Shell'', has you exploring new areas in order to highlight sections of a holy text which provide hints that finally allow you to solve the first puzzle you encounter in the expansion.
** ''VideoGame/MystVEndOfAges'' has a HubLevel which is also where you receive the MacGuffin after solving its subordinate levels. There's also a bit of a subversion: Once you get the MacGuffin, you have several choices of what to do with it. One is to bring it to Myst island, which seems appropriate as that's where the series began; however, doing this will result in a bad ending.

* In Chapter 4 of ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil5'', while exploring an ancient African ruin, Chris Redfield stumbles upon a long-abandoned dig site with decades-old equipment belonging to the Umbrella Corporation. It turns out this dig site is where the founders of Umbrella discovered the Progenitor Virus, which would be the basis which they derived all their viral research from: specifically, the virus was originally from a rare flower that grew only in the Kijuju area. It was a rite of passage for ancient kings to ingest the flower and survive days of torment: if they did, they were fit to take the throne.
