Added DiffLines:

* In ''VideoGame/NierAutomata'', you can run away from certain plot-important battles and abandon your allies. This will lead to message like "All androids met their demise. Except the really selfish ones." and the credits will zoom by in one second.

[[IThoughtItMeant Has nothing to do]] with games where [[Franchise/AceAttorney determining the guilty party is the main point]]. Or where [[TraumaCenter you're curing GUILT]].

Compare ItsAWonderfulFailure (the results of a failure are shown), WhatTheHellPlayer (the game calls you out on being a jerk), and YouBastard (the game doesn't stop you, but you're reminded that you shouldn't be enjoying whatever you're doing). Contrast AntiPoopSocking, when the game encourages you to ''stop'' instead.

* In ''VideoGame/{{Bayonetta}}'', if you choose "No" on the Continue screen, dozens of hands come up out of the ground and pull the eponymous witch down to Hell, while she screams at the top of her lungs. By far one of the most horrifying game over screens ever.

* In ''VideoGame/SaintsRow'', recruited gang members will pester you if you stand around with them for too long. It's okay, you can promptly blow them away with a sawn-off if they complain. In ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2'', your lieutenants will mouth off about whatever's on their mind if left to their own devices. In ''SaintsRowTheThird'', different recruitable characters can have conversations with each other.

Especially when it's the ''game itself'' that's trying to make you feel like the biggest JerkAss in the world.

* Stand up or turn down a [[RelationshipValues Social Link's]] offer to get together in ''{{Persona 3}}'', and that person will be sorely disappointed. Neglect them for too long, and the Link will ''reverse'' and you have to make up with them to gain back their friendship. Actively damage it (such as going out with one girl while you're dating another) and the Link will even ''break'', and berate you for it.

* The entire story of ''VideoGame/{{Persona 4}}'' is having the ability to rescue people from being killed. If you attempt to go to a previous dungeon when you currently need to rescue someone, your teammates will get angry with you for slacking off. If you choose not to rescue them, they DIE and Igor berates you. Also, you have the option of [[spoiler: killing Namatame by throwing him into the TV yourself.]] This leads to the Worst Ending, which is different than the plain Bad Ending. The punishment is that [[spoiler: Nanako is KilledOffForReal. Good luck with that. And as seen in [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pI5AFPSfYmw this video,]] when you get the Worst Ending, Dojima makes you feel really guilty too.]]
