* Somehow averted and [[ExaggeratedTrope exaggerated]] at the same time in ''VideoGame/ArTonelico'' games. You see, you can take a rest in either save points or inns, no Tent items needed. However, much of the VisualNovel part of the game happens when you take a rest and chat with the girls [[LevelUpAtIntimacy5 to increase relationship value]]. While you do this, the background is that of a ''tent'' (large enough), ''even if'' you take a rest in an inn.

** In Breath of Fire II, it's partially subverted. You cannot pitch a tent, but you can, in at least one point, rest outside. It's like an in, but you don't have to pay. Partially justified in the fact that when roaming a field full of monsters, manipulating time, become a dragon, and probably magic exposure helps the need to not sleep, and the outside encounter is somebody inviting you to rest with him, meaning it's most likely safe.
* One more exception: ''ValkyrieProfile'' allows you to spend "periods" of allotted time to heal your party on the world map.

* Exception: ''OgreBattle 64'' has a Camp option, that allows you to gradually restore energy (but not HP), but this option is only available if a unit is fatigued (ie. can't fight as well as they normally can), and also resting means fighting any enemies encountered with your unit asleep (unless you have Golems).

** ''[[VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIIIMorrowind Morrowind]]'' allowed you to sleep anywhere, tent or no tent, as long as you were outside in the wilderness; if you want to sleep inside a city, you must do so in an inn.
** In ''VideoGame/TheElderScrollsIVOblivion'', there ''are'' tents in the wilderness; permanent campsites, usually occupied by bandits you have to kill in order to sleep there. Nothing portable, however. Though this is correctable via downloadable mods. [[CaptainObvious If you have the PC version, anyway]].

inn or find an "unowned" bed. There are permanent campsites in the game world with tents, but none you can set up yourself.

* The majority of mods for all three ''VideoGame/{{STALKER}}'' games include a sleeping bag for the player to sleep, because otherwise time is slow to pass and night in the Zone is even more dangerous than the day. Though you do have to have good sense in where you camp, because otherwise a mutant will pay you a nighttime visit...

* ''VideoGame/RedDeadRedemption'' averts this, using a campsite as the main savehouse for the player that can be set up anywhere.
** But he doesn't use a tent, and when told to let time pass (i.e. sleep), Marston just curls up into a ball and closes his eyes for a while.
*** A tent appears if the player purchases the camp site upgrade. Marston still doesn't use it.
*** Onscreen, anyway. For all we know, him sitting down is simply him relaxing and he uses the tent when he actually goes to sleep...

* ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'': Most of the games with an OverworldNotToScale do utilise tents or cottages, except in dungeons where they can only be used at {{HealingCheckpoint}}s. The later games fall into this trope. ** ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyXI'':Characters can simply use /heal to rest and recover HP and MP. There are no inns for players, either, but that's because every major city has a Mog House/Rent-A-Room that you can go into and restore your health ''for free''. Heck, smaller towns even have Nomad Moogles that let you swap jobs and restore your health too.

* ''VideoGame/KingdomOfLoathing'' has a Noobsport Tent that's available from the Market Demon. It's the first step up from Sleeping on the Ground. There are better options up to and including a full-sized house, a giant pumpkin, an Egyptian-style "BRICKO" pyramid, a hobo fortress made of scrap metal, and an ''alien hypercube'', but the [[BribingYourWayToVictory Item-of-the-Month]] mountain hotel is by far the best. That said, since you can reach all unlocked locations ''from'' all unlocked locations without much trouble, you're not exactly wandering the earth, so a personal place for you to rest is all you need.
