* Recent games in the ''Franchise/FireEmblem'' series have a feature called "support", in which characters that spend a lot of time together in battle can have conversations which increase each of the supported characters' stats when they're near each other in battle. Certain preset supports change the ending, with the supported characters getting married and having children, and supports for the main characters will get an extra scene in the ending.

** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Path of Radiance]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemTellius Radiant Dawn]]'' have multiple endings as well, depending on [[spoiler:whether Ike defeated the Black Knight or not]] in the first case, and a whole bunch of different factors in the second case. For example:
*** [[spoiler:Whether the player killed Pelleas or not]]
*** [[spoiler:Whether Soren ever fought Micaiah and Pelleas or not]]
*** [[spoiler:Whether the player killed Lehran or not]]
** Also, ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemElibe Fire Emblem: Sword of Seals]]'' has three possible endings: the standard ending, the complete ending, and the best ending. The standard ending can be obtained by simply defeating Zephiel. If all the sacred weapons have been obtained and are still intact, two extra chapters are unlocked, leading to the complete ending, [[spoiler:in which you defeat the dark priestess Idoun]]. The best ending occurs if [[spoiler:Idoun is finished off by Roy using the Sword of Seals, and it shows Idoun's soul being saved]].

** ''[[VideoGame/FireEmblemAkaneia Mystery of the Emblem]]'' and its remake have two endings, one bad and one good. If the player manages to collect all five orbs (one of which is in twelve pieces), the binding shield will be completed, and [[spoiler:dispel the illusion that Gharnef and his followers use to disguise themselves as the clerics that they had kidnapped.]] This will unlock four more chapters where Marth and crew [[spoiler:travel to the heart of the Dragon's Alter, where [[FinalBoss Medeus]] has been revived.]] Failing to accomplish this will cause Marth to [[spoiler:fall for Gharnef's disguise and think the day is saved, allowing the Earth Dragons to awaken and cause the end of the world.]]

* ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' does the same as ''New Vegas'': you get four distinct factions locked in a war, and you work alternately for each of them until the game culminates in a final epic mission which sees your chosen faction wipe out the others and dominate the Commonwealth. Your choices this time are the [[BadassArmy Brotherhood of Steel]], the [[ForScience Institute]], the [[UndergroundRailroad Railroad]] and the [[WeHelpTheHelpless Minutemen]]. All the choices are {{Bittersweet Ending}}s: [[spoiler:If the Brotherhood win, the Commonwealth enjoys stability and prosperity like never before... but you have probably just consigned the synths, ghouls and super mutants of the region to extinction. If the Institute win, for better or worse the Commonwealth will be a test-bed for their experiments and the people just have to hope they ''try'' to change things for the better under the new leadership. If the Railroad win, the synths are all finally free but few people in the Commonwealth will see any change for the better. If the Minutemen win, then humans and synths can have a hand in building a new nation together, but with existing animosities between the two sides, no-one knows for sure if this will last.]]

* The UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 game ''ShadowOfDestiny'' had five different endings (actually six -- two of them have the same ultimate result, but achieve it in different ways), determined by the choices you made at certain junctures and whether or not you'd witnessed certain missable events. Each ending filled in different details of the overarcing plot, so it was necessary to play to all five of them to get the full picture of what was going on. Upon having seen all five of the endings, a new sixth (seventh) ending became available.

* Most of the ''{{Atelier|Series}}'' games (published in the West by Nippon Ichi) have multiple endings; some of the earlier, free-form Atelier games have upwards of ''thirteen'' of them, ranging from good to bad. The ''Iris'' sub-series mostly did away with this, but for the ''Mana Khemia'' games and the ''Atelier'' outings on the DS, the concept returned with a vengeance. It'll be back '''[[MemeticMutation IN THE THUNDERDOME!]]''' with the upcoming ''Atelier Rorona'' for the [=PS3=]; that game is being touted as having '''''[[SerialEscalation thirty]]''''' such endings of various types, among the highest count in the history of the medium.

* The ArTonelico series has this, partially owing to its DatingSim hybrid nature. For instance, the first game has seven endings based on which girl you choose and certain choices that will end the game early.

*** [[spoiler:Terra]] will be forced into the ending regardless of whether you recruited her in the World of Ruin or not. [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything There is an additional scene before the final battle to allow this scenario to make sense, even]].

* ''VideoGame/LiveALive'' has no less than four endings, three of which are bad, and two versions of the good one. (The second bad one is triggered by the best battle choice box in gaming history: Fight / Pass / Item / Armageddon.)
** In fact, [[TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything half the individual chapters]] have multiple endings of their own, deciding the scenes in the best ending. Not to mention your character for the final chapter affects [[ShutUpHannibal other]] [[AWinnerIsYou details]]. It is basically a [[{{Gattai}} gestalt]] of multiple endings.

** The third game can potentially end with Ciri either [[spoiler:becoming the Empress of Nilfgaard at the cost of never seeing Geralt again, formally undergoing the ritual and going on to become a Witcher of considerable renown, or dying and causing Geralt to become a DeathSeeker.]] How you resolve various political questlines can determine [[spoiler:who wins the war in the North, who rules in Skellige, whether Emperor Emhyr survives or not, and whether Geralt ends up with Triss, Yen or on his own.]]

* ''VampireTheMasqueradeBloodlines'' has several endings, depending on which faction you decide to side with during the final stages of the game. Two of those endings also have alternate branches depending on your [[KarmaMeter Humanity Score]].
