Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/MassEffect1'' lets you see a map of your current area at any time, marked with points of interest such as plot destinations, merchants or area transitons. Maps for main areas are made of outlines filled with blue while maps for uncharted worlds are displayed as heightmaps. ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' limited maps to hub areas only. For missions you had to contend with an arrow on your compass pointing you to the destination instead.

The map display would also rotate to indicate the direction the player is facing, either by rotating the 'you are here' cursor arrow, or by rotating the entire map so that up is the direction they are going.

going. Generally the former method is more commonly used in older games as it was much easier with limited processing power to rotate an arrow than it is to rotate the entire map.

* ''VideoGame/SpiderMan2'' has a zoomable, interactive map of New York. It displays information on challenges, help tokens (also whether or not you've completed them--useful, that), citizens in distress, Spidey Stores, crimes in progress, objective points, and key locations such as the Daily Bugle and Mary Jane's apartment. There was also a GPS-like minimap.

*''VideoGame/{{Roundabout}}'' displays a road-map style map of the entire area on the pause screen. It only covers the region of the map you're currently in (Suburbs, Roundabout City, or the Mountain), however.

** In several games of the series, the world map can be viewed at any time via the menu screen. From ''[[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaOcarinaOfTime Ocarina of Time]]'' onwards, a mini map display -- complete with arrows marking your point of entry (represented in blue) and your current heading (the yellow one) -- usually occupies the lower left corner of the screen for faster, easier navigation. There are two games in which, even after reaching a new place, its map has to be obtained from a character: Tingle in ''Majora's Mask'' and the Fishman in ''The Wind Waker''.
