* If you complete ''DemonsCrest'' with a HundredPercentCompletion, you're given a password after the credits. Enter it in, and you can continue the game with the Crest of Heaven Firebrand gained from Phalanx, as well as a new end boss.

** ''VideoGame/DragonAgeOrigins'' has a brief moment after the final boss and subsequent cutscene where you get to walk around and speak to your party members and related NPC folk about what happened, ask them what they're going to do, and generally sort of fill out the epilogue before the final FINAL cutscene of the game. That is, of course, assuming that [[spoiler:you didn't die killing the Archdemon]], in which case it is a good ol' cutscene (with a lot of variations, depending on your earlier choices).

* ''VideoGame/BatmanArkhamAsylum'' lets you continue playing after beating the final boss so that you can finish up The Riddler's challenges. Or go for a couple [[CosmeticAward Achievements/Trophies]]. ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamCity Arkham City]]'' is the same, but it also has side-quests on top of the Riddler Challenges. ''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamOrigins Arkham Origins]]'' does the same, and even opens up a new Most Wanted sidequest requiring Batman to round up 20 escaped Blackgate prisoners.

''[[VideoGame/BatmanArkhamKnight Arkham Knight]]'' has a slightly different form of this. You can keep playing after the ending, doing side missions and such but due to the circumstances of the story, you don't actually get to see the real ending until you choose to go to a certain place after the final boss is defeated, and in order to see the complete ending you have to actually finish all side-missions (not including the DLC ones), so playing the epilogue might actually be required to see the full ending.

** It was originally averted in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 3}}'', leading to massive fan outcry. It wasn't until the ''Broken Steel'' expansion that the player was allowed to continue.
** ''Videogame/FalloutNewVegas'' averts it as every one of the MultipleEndings would drastically change the game world. All of the expansions are set before the game's ending. Post-game content [[WhatCouldHaveBeen was planned at some point]], but abandoned because of how hard it would be to do properly.

** A brief end cutscene (with no credits) plays in ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' when you make one of the four major factions the dominant one, then the game continues as usual. There are a few minor differences reflecting which ending occurred and quests set after the game's ostensible ending.

** The ability to complete sidequests and the DLCs with ''VideoGame/MassEffect2'' leads to the HilariousInHindsight moments where the Illusive Man helpfully points you toward these missions ''after'' you've quite possibly [[spoiler: destroyed the Collector Base he wanted, transferred the loyalty of the Cerberus crew of the ''Normandy 2'' from Cerberus to you, made two of his senior lieutenants quit Cerberus to also join you, have basically stolen the massive investment that was the ''Normandy 2'', (which EDI reveals makes up a rather significant chunk of Cerberus personnel and capacity), and probably told him to go fuck himself.]] The only DLC that doesn't fall into this is "Arrival," which has you working on behalf of [[BigGood Admiral Hackett]] instead.

* The ''DarkSun'' games from SSI let you keep playing after completing the game. In the first game in particular you could revisit the villages who helped you in the final battle and they would all acknowledge your efforts.
