* Some racing games and other such titles do the same. [[VideoGame/MarioKart Double Dash]] comes to mind.

* [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTheWindWaker The last]] [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaTwilightPrincess three 3D]] [[VideoGame/TheLegendOfZeldaSkywardSword Zelda games]], which all run on similar engines, have start screens rendered as in-engine cutscenes. If you use a [[GoodBadBug glitch]] called Back In Time (done by soft resetting during a transition period such as resetting after falling into a pit) you'll be able to play in the title screen; although it doesn't have that much use in ''Wind Waker'', it can be used for some awesome SequenceBreaking in ''Twilight Princess'' (start the game with the Master Sword and Hylian Shield) and ''Skyward Sword'' (using a [[SavePoint Bird Statue]] in the title screen can warp you around the game world or out of bounds depending on where you are).

* Averted in ''VideoGame/WiiFit'', which boots directly into the Wii Fit Plaza (where the players' Miis can be selected). If the game is booted for the first time, you instead get the Wii Balance Board introducing itself, followed by the usual proceedure for adding a new player.

* ''[[SuperMarioBros Super Mario 64]]'' had the famous screen in which you could stretch Mario's face.
* ''{{Pokemon}} Stadium'' 1 and 2 changed their Start screens as you progressed through the games.

* AssassinsCreed Revelations has a barebones start screen with glitches on the screen, since the game [[spoiler: has the Animus breaking down with your mind inside it.]]

* ''BlueDragon'', oddly, instead of having a typical start screen with a title, just has a white screen with copyright information on it.
* If you beat most ''SoulSeries'' games with every character, you are awarded with a fancier title screen. Different characters will also announce the title.

* The first Sega Genesis X-men gave does not begin with a start screen-instead, you are prompted to pick a X-man and travel through a short level, and then the screen proper appears. Its sequel does the same thing, only your character is random. ''X-men 2: Clone Wars'' for the Sega Genesis goes even further with it, as seen in the Angry Video Game Nerd's [[http://www.gametrailers.com/video/angry-video-screwattack/48906 review]]; you start playing the instant the console is turned on.

* Much like the ''Franchise/{{X-Men}}'' examples above, in ''Vice: Project Doom'', the title screen doesn't appear until after you beat the first stage. The "Push Start Button" screen appears after the intro.

In true arcade games, "Press Start" will be replaced by "Insert Coin" (or credit or quarter). Start screens for games for older consoles, such as the {{Atari 2600}}, won't always have "press start" stated outright - but even they usually have a start screen.
