* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' has shooting galleries halfaway in the castle section that are hard to resist to play untill completion just to get the juicy rewards. It also has the Mercenaries minigame after finishing the game, which could be cosidered a game on it's own.

* ''VideoGame/ResidentEvil4'' has shooting galleries halfaway ** In ''VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaBreathOfTheWild'', you have Snowling, a form of 9-pin bowling using giant snowballs and wooden totem poles. You can spend hours mastering the art of getting a perfect strike every time... in fact, the game practically encourages this, as snowling is the one reliable source of Rupees in the castle section that are hard to resist to play untill completion just to get the juicy rewards. It also has the Mercenaries minigame after finishing the game, which could be cosidered a whole game on and it's own.practically a necessity to pay for the various extravagantly priced goods in the game.

* ''VideoGame/TheEvilWithin2'' has the shooting gallery that you unlock in Sebastian's Safe Room at a certain point in the game. The ''VideoGame/CandyCrush'' like "Chain Attack" mode is so addicting that the game even lampshades it; when you hit the maximum possible point score (100 thousand), Sebastian comments that he should get back to finding his daughter now.

* ''[[VideoGame/{{Tobal}} Tobal No. 1]]'' was a unique take on fighting games set in 3D back in the early days of the genre. While it was unique enough on it's own to be fun, it also included a rather hard dungeon exploration mode with randomly generated dungeons, monsters to fight that would test your skills (and were not just reskins of the fighters available) and was genuinely fun. After the fighting was done, you could count on hours and hours of replay in the dungeon.

** As any high school student knows well, pressing up on the "No internet connection" page for Chrome (the one with the t-rex on it) gives you a tiny jumping game. Even your web browser is distracting you from your education.

** Don't forget the Special Zones where you tried to get the Chaos Emeralds. Those were a game in their own right.
*** The trope is played straight when you lock Sonic the Hedgehog cartridge on Sonic & Knuckles'. You get a full version of Blue Spheres minigame, with a total of 134,217,728 levels! It also will sidetrack players from playing ''both'' games attached.

Added DiffLines:

** ''VideoGame/SonicMania'' marks a return of the ''Blue Sphere'' minigame as the bonus stages from reaching checkpoints with enough rings, [[spoiler:and beating all of them unlocks a mode similar to the stand-alone ''Blue Sphere'' game with randomly generated levels. It includes the variation with classic rules, and a "Mania" variant that adds two new types of spheres.]] The game also contains a minigame in the form of [[spoiler:a remake of ''Puyo Puyo''(/''Dr. Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine''), which can also be unlocked to be played at any time after clearing enough bonus stages.]] It's possible to get lost in either of these, spending game sessions not even touching the main platformer because of them.

*** Super Training is a set of mini-games where your Pokemon kicks soccer balls into a balloon to try and pop it as fast as possible. This has the gameplay purpose of increasing your Pokémon's Effort Values which can be manipulated for MinMaxing, and is much, much easier than the previous way of killing a certain type of Pokemon over and over again. Secret Super Training has mini-games that reward rare items like Evolution Stones, PP Ups, and even ''PP Maxes'' if the player does well enough. Of course, it still takes a long time to complete, so players find themselves spending a lot of time in the mini-games, causing this trope.
