* ''VideoGame/InjusticeGodsAmongUs'' averts this, with the robust and coherent plot being one of the most praised aspects, and a great deal of attention put into why characters are fighting each other in various locales as well as a HandWave for the PowerCreepPowerSeep, and the [[AllThereInTheManual tie-in comics]] are actually pretty popular.

* The ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom'' series is filled with {{continuity nods}} from both companies that the players enjoy. But these same players don't seem to care what Comicbook/SpiderMan is doing working with Doctor Doom and [[Franchise/ResidentEvil Albert Wesker]] to beat the crap out of [[Franchise/AceAttorney Phoenix Wright]], [[VideoGame/DevilMayCry Dante]] and ComicBook/CaptainAmerica in a version of ComicBook/DaysOfFuturePast where [[VideoGame/FinalFight Metro City]] is overrun by sentinels seemingly there to hunt down VideoGame/MegaMan. Doesn't help by the fact that the first games made some attempt at showing what happens after each certain character takes down the BigBad, but in ''VideoGame/MarvelVsCapcom3'' half the endings have nothing to do with stopping Galactus from eating the earth. They even added in a tie-in comic that was normally AllThereInTheManual and an opening narration for the UpdatedRerelease that just gets skipped by most people.

* The fanbase for ''the entire shoot-em-up genre'' is this trope. While there are some games that delve deeper than [[ExcusePlot "aliens / a foreign country / killer robots are attacking the place the protagonist is from"]]--for example, the ''VideoGame/DonPachi'' series is a DeconstructorFleet for typical shmup plots and robot girls, ''VideoGame/{{Tyrian}}'' features an extensive "story mode" campaign with {{Story Breadcrumb}} items to collect, and ''VideoGame/TheTaleOfALLTYNEX'' is an epic of civilizations dealing with various [=AIs=] gone awry--attempting to discuss shoot-em-up plots in depth tends to be [[FandomBerserkButton met with derision and snark]] from most fans who think you shouldn't care. This is perhaps why the general scrolling shooter fanbase [[FandomRivalry has a beef with]] that of ''VideoGame/{{Touhou}}'', as its fanbase has [[EnjoyTheStorySkipTheGame the opposite phenomenon]].

* Most of the story arcs in ''VideoGame/{{beatmania}} IIDX'' from ''beatmania IIDX 20 tricoro'' onwards exist to set up the games' song unlock systems, and tend to feature some amusing dialogue between the [[PlayerCharacter player's Q-Pro avatar]] and various characters. However, most players, especially non-Japanese players who do not speak Japanese, will simply skip over the dialogue, and in fact, it's something of a FandomBerserkButton to actually read the cutscene dialogue instead of skipping it, as some players will [[StopHelpingMe "helpfully"]] press the Start button for you to skip.
