* ''World of Subways 4 - New York Line 7'' invokes this during the SecretLevel "Midnight": You have to walk through an evacuated subway sector to find the missing parts for its respective train... while hiding from an [[NothingIsScarier unseen]] SerialKiller at the same time. The "Sinister" part gets even more so whenever a JumpScare cue prompts you to deactivate your flashlight and stay still.

** ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' features similar situations in the former Boston subway lines, one of which houses an unfinished Vault that's been occupied by gangsters. There's also the Mass Pike Tunnel, which is part of the abandoned roadway network, but has the same hazards. Averted with the Third Rail, a nightclub established in the former subway station below the Old State House in Goodneighbor.

* The third ''VideoGame/{{Exmortis}}'' game has you escaping into one of these to take shelter from a nuke that goes off on the surface. It's plenty creepy - with an EldritchAbomination stalking you and playing with your memories, you have to manually restart a train while avoiding booby traps, and there's a [[ImAHumanitarian cannibal]] living in the tunnels.
