* The ''VideoGame/CommandAndConquer'' series were probably the first to justify this trope as an actual plot element for an RTS game. Specifically, the ''Tiberium'' series introduced the Electronic Video Assistants, an expert system designed to monitor the status of all troops on the battlefield in real time instead of using a brigade of human officers to do the same significantly slower. It became especially noticeable in Tiberian Sun where the EVA installed onto the Kodiak is a fully sentient AI and no longer just spouting pre-recorded messages like its predecessor. Red Alert, since it was originally intended to be a prequel, gave the player an experimental EVA prototype but from Red Alert 2 onward, there is a MissionControl in the form of the {{AFGNCAAP}}'s [[BridgeBunny female intelligence officer]] instead.

An inversion of the above may be considered a subtrope, where ''you'' are the Voice with an Internet Connection and you have to assist a character in a remote and dangerous situation; these are generally variants of the VisualNovel with branching story paths and multiple endings, and were recently popularized by the mobile game ''Lifeline''.
