* ''Dino D-Day'' has some from all of its numerous human and dinosaur classes. The human ones tend to be more straight examples while the dinosaur ones (translated, of course) usually has to do with how they're hungry.

* ''VideoGame/TwentyXX'' has a few responses for confirming that you're quitting the run (saving and quitting after killing a boss has a different set of responses). One of the more direct is "CONFIRM SELECTION: YOU ARE A QUITTER".

* Three Dog in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' acts as the player's in-universe karmic barometer. Choose the good ending in sidequests and he'll be singing your name, but go for the evil path in sidequests and he'll be calling you out as a menace for the rest of the game. This gets particularly complicated in the Tenpenny Tower quest, though, because he's decided to side with Roy and the ghouls even though Roy is a murderous, racist asshole who will kill the inhabitants of the tower (some of which aren't even that bad a people) if he gets his way, and even if you get the GoldenEnding that should make both sides happy he'll ruin it right after you leave.

** ''VideoGame/TekkenTagTournament'' had a little dancing Ling Xiaoyu as it's data. Selecting to delete that data would cause her to drop to her knees, crying her eyes out.

** It even guilt-trips the people who aren't playing, but watching the game via LetsPlay.

** There's a rather heart-breaking {{YTMND}} about this, when someone checked in on their mom's game [[http://animalcrossingtragedy.ytmnd.com after she died]].

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' gives you the option to end any romance that you have entered into. The response from your paramour will be heartbreaking. Breaking up with Thane, a [[IllMan dying man]] [[spoiler:[[RomancingTheWidower and widower]]]], will make you hope you have a recent save file on hand to go back to.

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'' doesn't guilt trip frequently, but any time you try to disband a follower, they give you a mopey confirmation dialog. Dogmeat lets out a forlorn, inquisitive whine. The bad-boy ex-raider acts incredulously abused. The friendly super mutant tries to act nice, but comes off as really cynical. Your snarky slave wipes the smirk off her face and gives you 'But..but...what did ''I'' do?' puppy-dog eyes. Even the damn robot acts like you're throwing him to the wolves!

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' strikes a balance between ''3'' and ''New Vegas''. Simply asking companions to disband yields no guilt-based response. As for exchanging one companion for another, the two companions in question will share dialogue with each other, sometimes with friendly banter (such as [=MacCready=] and Cait flirting) while being displeased other times (exchanging Danse with a synth companion or the synth-sympathizing Deacon). Dogmeat still whimpers sadly, but most companions will apologize to him or reassure him his owner is in good hands...except for Cait, who [[KickTheDog calls Dogmeat a "dirty little mole rat"]].
