* ''ValkyrieProfile'' has three endings, with the A Ending being this trope. Getting it is one of the most frustrating cases of GuideDangIt ever, as the steps needed to have it are either counter-intuitive (with the biggest case being [[spoiler:sending a major character not long after recruiting him to Valhalla in a specific frame of time, and then visiting a specific location in Chapter 7]]), or not shown in-game at all ([[spoiler:which in this case is the KarmaMeter that triggers the A Ending when at a certain level -- it's Lenneth's Seal Rating, which must be below thirty points by Chapter 7. Points go down when recruiting characters or witnessing specific scenes, and it goes up when someone goes to Valhalla]]). The standard B Ending is usually the result of not following these steps (or the [[NonStandardGameOver C Ending]] if you screw up).
** ''[[ValkyrieProfileCovenantOfThePlume Covenant of the Plume]]'', though, has a a much more straightforward way of determining it, basing the ending on how often you use the Plume. Given that the Plume [[DeadlyUpgrade effectively murders]] your close friends and allies when you use it, take a wild guess what you have to do to get the good ending.

* ''VideoGame/StellaGlow'': In Imageepoch's swan swong, by reaching rank 7 affinity with [[spoiler:Klaus]] before he leaves your party the choice to reject a certain character's last wish is made available. In this ending the aforementioned character survives and you will pick up a powerful character later on in the game.

* ''VideoGame/MatchesAndMatrimony'' is a PC game which mashes three of Creator/JaneAusten's novels (''Literature/PrideAndPrejudice'', ''Literature/SenseAndSensibility'', and ''Literature/{{Persuasion}}'') into one surprisingly well-done game. There are nine possible outcomes to the story, and the player is encouraged to unlock them all. Two involve the {{player character}} remaining unmarried, and the other seven marry her to one of the potential suitors she meets. Most of the endings are good, but the one that is considered best is the one that follows the full plot of ''Pride and Prejudice'' to the marriage of the player character to Mr. Darcy.

* In ''VideoGame/PuellaMagiMadokaMagicaPortable'', the best ending ensures that [[spoiler:Madoka remains a MuggleBestFriend, and the {{Magical Girl}}s themselves [[EverybodyLives survive]] and accept their unfortunate circumstances]].

Though this is [[OnlyTheLeadsGetAHappyEnding the best ending for the girls]], it is not so for the rest if the world[[note]]that would be the ending that follows the path of the original anime[[/note]] since [[spoiler: Madoka deciding not to become a magical girl means that she can't defeat all witches before they are born, thereby dooming all magical girls to become witches like they always have]] and even the heroes can only look forward to [[spoiler:dying in battle one day]].

* It's generally thought that the best ending of ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' is [[spoiler:the one where you infiltrate the Institute for the Railroad, initiate the Institute quest ''Battle of Bunker Hill'' and then inform the Railroad of the Institute's plans to attack Bunker Hill and help them defend it from the Institute. This results in your cover being blown and you are advised by Desdemona to lead the Minutemen in invading the Institute and sounding the evacuation order before you blow the place to hell. Doing this leaves the Railroad and the Minutemen as effectively allies, and it also means the Brotherhood of Steel will continue to co-exist with the two allied factions in an uneasy truce provided you leave them alone. In other words, this is the ending which involves the least loss of innocent life. Though trickier, it's also possible in the Brotherhood ending to bypass killing off the Railroad by initiating the Institute quest ''Mass Fusion'' and handing it in to the Brotherhood, leading to a similar situation except the Brotherhood is the dominant military force in the region instead of the Minutemen.]]

* Getting the best ending in [[ShadowrunReturns ''Shadowrun: Hong Kong'']] requires that you go out of your way to assemble scattered hints about the nature of the Yama Kings: Crafty Xu's research, Is0bel's recounting of an urban legend from the Walled City, the dreams you experience when you rest after a mission, and dialogue with Raymond you'll only hear if you stop him and Duncan from arguing. With enough information, [[spoiler:you can trick Qian Ya into a deal that forces her to retreat to her realm, destroy the Fortune Engine and release the enthralled people of the Walled City - all without having to sacrifice Raymond.]]
