* The first two ''Franchise/{{Lufia}}'' games were placed in reverse order, with ''VideoGame/LufiaIIRiseOfTheSinistrals'' happening before ''VideoGame/LufiaAndTheFortressOfDoom''. The first game even ''started'' with ATasteOfPower that eventually became the final conflict in the second game, creating a nice little loop of continuity. The third game, ''VideoGame/LufiaTheLegendReturns'', is third chronologically, 100 years after ''Fortress of Doom'' and 200 years after ''Lufia II''. The GaidenGame, ''VideoGame/LufiaTheRuinsOfLore'', is set twenty years after ''Lufia II'' (eighty years before ''Fortress of Doom'').

** Gen VI muddles the timeline a bit thanks to ''Pokémon Omega Ruby and Alpha Sapphire'', the remakes of ''Ruby and Sapphire''.

* ''Franchise/TheElderScrolls'' series all take place in the same world and are roughly chronological, but have different locations and, for the most part, characters. Except for the spin-offs. ''Battlespire'' takes place just before and during the first game, while ''Redguard'' takes place roughly 300 years before the first game. ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsVSkyrim Skyrim]]'' is going to take place two centuries after Oblivion, but has been announced as a more direct sequel, events-wise.

** Square Enix's Ivalice realm is a consistent world visited by the player at various different point in history, each time centered on completely unrelated protagonists. The titles are non linear; the ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' games, ''Vagrant Story'' and ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXII''. But even Ivalice's continuity is a little haphazard. Back when they were new, the only indication of a connection between ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTactics'' and ''VagrantStory'' was a few small references; FFT's own sequel later on, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyTacticsAdvance'', also had ''very'' little to do with its predecessor. Making Ivalice a more explicitly consistent setting was a later development, and it's [[ContinuityDrift still a bit different than it started out]] since it took some {{retcon}}ning to fit things together.
** Only afterwards, some games are now getting sequels, probably inspired by the success of the ''Compilation of VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII''. For example, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIV'' has a cellphone[=/WiiWare=] game sequel, ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyIVTheAfterYears Final Fantasy IV: The After Years]]''.
** As of ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyIX'', the entire series takes place in a larger [[TheMultiverse Multiverse]], as did ''[[VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2 Final Fantasy X-2]]''. The [[AllThereInTheManual Ultimania]] notes that [[spoiler:Shinra, the kid genius of the Gullwings, was the ancestor of [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII Rufus Shinra]].

** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII'' was the first game in the series to be envisioned with other games (''VideoGame/FinalFantasyType0'' for example) sharing a continuity in mind, although from the get-go that "continuity" was outlined as a theme involving crystals steeped in mythology and nothing else, for the most part. While it eventually gained direct sequels, ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXIII2'' and ''VideoGame/LightningReturnsFinalFantasyXIII'', the original vision changed quite a lot over the years, with ''Type-0'', originally sharing the XIII title as ''Agito XIII'', renamed before its release, and with the third game--the very well-anticipated ''Versus XIII''--announced way back in 2006 along with the other two changing into a large, separate verse so much that it's finally been renamed '''''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXV'''''. The end of the E3 trailer that announced this even implies that, as "a world in the Versus epic" (quote), Noctis will have his own saga in ''Fabula Nova Crystallis'' (its title can be faintly seen at the beginning of the trailer), as Lightning has had.

* ''VideoGame/DinoCrisis3'' goes from the NextSundayAD setting of its predecessors into the distant future, complete with a new storyline that does not pick up where part 2 left off. Considering how [[LeftHanging part 2 ended on a very tense cliffhanger]] and part 3 turned out to be a FranchiseKiller, [[FanonDiscontinuity fans of the first two games don't have a whole lot of nice things to say about it]].

The first game even ''started'' with ATasteOfPower that eventually became the final conflict in the second game, creating a nice little loop of continuity. The third game, ''VideoGame/LufiaTheLegendReturns'', is third chronologically, 100 years after ''Fortress of Doom'' and 200 years after ''Lufia II''.
