** Now become StylisticSuck in ''VideoGame/PokemonSunAndMoon'': Unlike the previous evil teams of sinister and well-organised adults, Team Skull's membership is mostly teenage delinquents that apparently screw up as many crimes as they carry out. As such, in their first appearance the two grunts you meet use a ''lot'' of slang of this kind ('We didn't even want your wack Pokémon anyway!'), but it fits because the ''idea'' is not no-one takes them seriously.

* ''VideoGame/PunkySkunk was trying to go for this when it was released. It featured many sports elements such as paragliding, snowboarding and roller skating as means of getting through the levels. Even the boss fights revolved around sports instead of the normal defeating the opponent via fighting.

* ''GhostbustersTheVideoGame'' has Winston use 80s and 90s slang.
--> '''Winston''': Take it to the bridge!
--> '''Ray (over radio)''': Did Winston just say "take it to the bridge"? What are you guys doing out there?

** The [[http://pokebeach.com/news/0811/worlds-11-cleaning-cloth-front.jpg logo]] has a lot of TotallyRadical in it. It sort of makes sense since Unova is based off New York and New Jersey, and that's stereotypical 90s BigApplesauce.

* ''PocketKingdom: Own the World'', one of the very few good-by-consensus games for the UsefulNotes/NGage platform, is intentionally filled with this, as it attempts to mirror an actual PC {{M|assivelyMultiplayerOnlineRolePlayingGame}}MORPG. Players buy and upgrade their weapons with "loot", and losing characters are "owned", rather than simply being defeated.

*** The decision to localise a monster referred in Japan as "Funny Face" to "Dorky Face" is the sort of thing that would only have happened in 1997.

* ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII'''s English localisation has a lot of slang in both party dialogue and NPC dialogue. It was a big achievement [[SeinfeldIsUnfunny at the time of release]], signalling that the game was DarkerAndEdgier than its more stilted competitors - and there was swearing in the script, too! Unfortunately, a lot of the script now comes off as [[UnintentionalPeriodPiece painfully 90s]] (Yuffie's ValleyGirl speech) and lots more just painful (virtually all of Barret's dialogue, as well as Cait Sith's and at least a chunk of Cloud's). Cid's dialogue is intentional CurseOfTheAncients, though, and still funny. It doesn't help that, while all the player characters have very clear and diverse manners of speaking, the 'slang filter' means that a lot (although by no means all) of the [=NPCs=] talk in the exact same way, whether they're from the slums of the world's biggest metropolis or minor nobility in {{Wutai}}.

** In particular, fresh gets used the most, including in the Squid Sisters' sign-off catch phrase.
** The victory screen for winning an amiibo challenge has [=NOICE=] plastered in graffiti style letters on it. This is probably the ''least'' dated slang in the game. The boy amiibo also calls you "playa".
