* ''Animation/TheMindsEye'' series. Its primary purpose was to showcase animation technology and talent of the early '90s, and it is composed of clips of computer animation from hundreds of animators, so there was very little thought given to any sort of plot. The sequences act just like the segments from ''Fantasia'' above (set to electronic music, of course), but there are a few attempts at a story. Both ''The Mind's Eye'' and ''Beyond the Mind's Eye'' feature whole sequences that have a self-contained story because the story was already planned out by the studios who submitted them. ''The Gate to the Mind's Eye'' attempts to form a coherent story, but it's largely lost [[AllThereInTheManual if you don't read the box or DVD case]].

* ''Animation/TheMindsEye'' series. Its primary purpose was to showcase animation technology and talent Music/FrankZappa's directorial debut, ''Film/TwoHundredMotels'', is entirely made up of the early '90s, and it is composed of clips of computer animation from hundreds of animators, so there was very little thought given to any sort of plot. The sequences act just like the incredibly bizarre segments from ''Fantasia'' above (set to electronic music, of course), but there are a few attempts at a story. Both ''The Mind's Eye'' and ''Beyond the Mind's Eye'' feature whole sequences that have a self-contained story because the story was already planned out by the studios who submitted situations with equally strange imagery and editing all taking place on an [[NoBudget obviously cheap movie set]] with next to no connection between any of them. ''The Gate In interviews, Zappa claimed to have secretly recorded his band mates while they were high or drunk for inspiration while writing the Mind's Eye'' attempts script and intended the film to form a coherent story, highlight the editing possibilities of videotape. Granted the plot was the result of the film never being properly finished, but it's largely lost [[AllThereInTheManual if you don't read considering Zappa's body of work the box or DVD case]].
final cut probably wouldn't have been that different from what was released.

* ''TonyHawksUnderground'': Averted, with one of the most developed plots that had so far ever been seen in a sports-oriented game, about two friends slowly growing to hate each other as each follows a different path to stardom. Many later games in the series have taken to including a solid story.

Added DiffLines:

* ''VideoGame/{{Warlight}}'': as an Indie Risk adaptation, it doesn't provide much more [[TakeOverTheWorld plot]] than the original tabletop game.
**Some games do avert this through EmergentGameplay elements created by players though.

* ''Videogame/{{Galaxian}}'': And to an even larger extent, ''{{Galaga}}'' and it's descendants. To this day, there is confusion as to who the Galaxians are. The original game strongly suggests that it's TheFederation which your ship (called a Galaxip) presumably represents. But PopCultureOsmosis has suggested that the Galaxians are the alien invaders. And is ''Galaga'' a sequel or a remake/reimagining? Are any of the ''Galaxian''/''Galaga'' games even related to each other in story? Does ''Galaxian'' share a universe with ''Videogame/{{Gorf}}'' (which has a Galaxian stage)? or {{PacMan}} (which has a Galaxian flagship as one of the bonus items)? All of these questions may never be answered.
