* ''VideoGame/{{Minecraft}}'': the desert is a biome composed of rolling hills of sand overlaying layers of sandstone, dotted with cacti (which will hurt you if you touch them) and completely lacking in natural water. Itís one of the worst biomes to spawn in, completely lacking highly valuable early-game resources such as wood or meat, except for extremely hard to catch rabbits. Even in the late game, the desertís only real draws are the possibility of trade at desert villages and the pyramid-like desert temples with hidden rooms full of valuable items, if you can get past the booby traps. The desert has a unique zombie variant that spawns only there, the withered, mummy-like Husk, which does not burn in the sunlight.
* ''VideoGame/{{Terraria}}'': There are occasional deserts strewn throughout the map. The 1.3 update added an Underground Desert to the mix, and 1.3.3 made possible sandstorms.

**The southwestern section of Hyrule in ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'' is comprised of the Gerudo desert, in which the [[OneGenderRace Gerudo race]] returns for the first time since ''Ocarina of Time''. Naturally, during the day, the environment becomes very hot, requiring you to prepare accordingly (whether via heat-reducing elixirs or equipment). At night, however, the temperature drops dramatically, necessitating you to account for that if you're taking long treks through the wastelands.

** ''VideoGame/SonicForces'''s GreenHillZone appears to be mixed with a desert, because of Eggman's industries taking over the area. The [[SandIsWater waterfall is sandy]], too.

** ''VideoGame/KirbysDreamLand3'' gives us the first true desert world in the series, Sand Canyon, as the game's third world.

* In keeping with the WildWest theme, practically all of ''VideoGame/{{Wild ARMs 3}}'' takes place in a desert. You even have a [[SandIsWater sand cruiser rather than a ship]].
** Sand rivers and ocean themed areas appear in most of the other games in the ''{{Wild ARMs}}'' series, as well.
* In ''VideoGame/WorldOfWarcraft'', the Silithus desert is home to sentient insects with quasi-Egyptian architectural tastes, and the Tanaris desert is just a massive box of sand with a few oases and troll ruins ''very'' loosely scattered around the map. Post-''Cataclysm'', Tanaris has become a popular vacation spot due to the dramatically increased size of the beach area.
