* ''VideoGame/OneShot'' features one at the very end of the game: [[TrappedInAnotherWorld send Niko home]] or [[TheWorldIsAlwaysDoomed (temporarily)]] SaveTheWorld. There is no [[TakeAThirdOption third option]] by the time you need to make the choice. Trying to [[NewGamePlus *find* a third option]] [[TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt makes things worse before they get better]].

* The first ''AnotherCenturysEpisode'' game features one of these: [[spoiler:Either blow up civilian space shuttles at random trying to locate a bomb, or let that bomb get to Earth and completely wreck the environment.]] [[SarcasmMode Thanks a bunch,]], [[Anime/MobileSuitGundamCharsCounterattack Char]].

* Common throughout the ''VisualNovel/ZeroEscape'' franchise, but the final game, ''VisualNovel/ZeroTimeDilemma'', is based on these with the "Decision Game" repeatedly foisted on the characters. Does Diana risk blowing Sigma's brains out in order to save Phi, who is trapped in an incinerator? This is just one example of many.

* Near the end of the prologue in ''VideoGame/WolfensteinTheNewOrder'', Deathshead has Blazkowicz and his surviving squad mates captured, and forces Blazkowicz to choose either Fergus or Wyatt to be taken away and "put to the scalpel". Doing so changes the story in a number of ways, both subtle (hotwiring/lock-picking minigame) and not-so-subtle (different characters join LaResistance depending on who you save). And there's no [[TakeaThirdOption third option]] either - take too long to choose, and you ALL die. You ''have'' to choose either Fergus or Wyatt.

And just to rub it in, at a certain point in the plot whomever you saved will [[WhatTheHellHero ream Blazkowicz out]] and say that he made the wrong choice -- Fergus says you should have saved the younger man, while Wyatt says you should have saved the more experienced soldier.


Added DiffLines:

** Episode One of the second season has an even bigger one. [[spoiler: Riddler manages to trap Batman in a cage along with one of the government agents he captured, while the other three are still locked in his death traps. He offers Batman a set of "riddles" (which is really just ego-stroking, like "What's the name of the man who outsmarted the Batman?"); if he answers wrong or refuses to answer, one of the trapped agents will be killed. However, every time he answers correctly Riddler hits the cage with a blast from a sonic weapon; while Batman's suit will protect him from the worst of it, the agent in the cage with him will die of internal hemorrhaging after three blasts. Tragically, the game subverts the "third option": if you answer all three questions, Batman will figure out a way to destroy the cage while putting the agent inside a broken deathtrap to shield her from the blast. While she survives, the sonic attack leaves her permanently deaf, something that makes her partner hate Batman more than he already did.]]

* ''VideoGame/TheWitcher3WildHunt'' has one quest where Geralt is tasked to destroy the malicious spirit [[spoiler:of a murdered druidess]] who has been killing innocent people left and right, only for it to barter with its life by promising to save a group of blameless orphans set for sacrifice. There is no good choice. [[spoiler:It's heaviy implied in an in-game book that the murdered druidess is the individual that created [[WickedWitch the Crones of Crookback Bog]].]]

** Subverted in Shaundi's LoyaltyMission: in the end, two digital clones of DJ Veteran Child take Shaundi and "Fun Shaundi" (Shaundi's LiteralSplitPersonality, based on how she appeared in ''VideoGame/SaintsRow2'') hostage and try to force you to choose who lives and who dies. Both Shaundis collectively decide "Fuck that!" and kill the clones themselves--especially poignant is that they each kill the clone threatening the ''other'' Shaundi, demonstrating their newfound readiness to accept each other.
