** GrandfatherClause is in effect here, though, as Sonic was conceived at the beginning of TheNineties (when some of his phrases were still making the rounds) and he's [[TropeMaker the]] MascotWithAttitude so it comes with the territory.

** The 2015 ''Series/NeedForSpeed'' game is absolutely ''dripping'' with this in the cutscenes where it is far too evident they were trying too hard to emulate street racing culture. However, shut your brain off and it might go all the way around and turn into NarmCharm.

* ''VisualNovel/PhoenixWrightAceAttorney: Justice For All'': "That monkey doesn't fake the funk on a nasty dunk." To say nothing of Sal Manella, the fat, geeky TV director in the first game who largely communicates in 1337-speak when agitated, prompting your sidekick to ask "What are 'suck sores'?"

* ''VideoGame/NeedForSpeedUnderground 2'''s use of street slang was criticized ''when it came out''; more than a decade later, and some of the dialogue is just downright painful to read or listen to. The most prominent example is that the in-game currency is called "Bank".

You realize Cosmic isn't just a slang term right?
* As can be expected from the title, the ''VideoGame/CosmicFantasy'' franchise used the word "Cosmic" on a lot of things, notably the Cosmic Pirates and Cosmic Hunters.

* ''VideoGame/LifeIsStrange'' is an interest example, in that the slang is not particularly out of date, just overused or used in odd places ("You got hella cash!", "You hella saved my life!", "Are you cereal?!"). A few reviewers and fans have noted that the slang itself appears to be used correctly - instead, the audience hearing it is out of touch, and thus assumes that it is being used incorrectly.

A few reviewers and fans have noted that the slang itself appears to be used correctly - instead, the audience hearing it is out of touch, and thus assumes that it is being used incorrectly. However, by the time Episode 4 arrived, the writers had listened to audience criticisms and dialed back on the slang. But "hella" stuck around as sort of a CatchPhrase/VerbalTic for Chloe.

* ''VideoGame/{{Splatoon}}'' is very, very unabashedly retro-'90s in everything it does. Even the tutorial sequence is thickly saturated in ghetto-fabulous slang. Funky fresh! Characters even unironically use 'radical' in a 2015 game, for example when Callie says "I just saw the raddest car drive by!" in the European translation (in North American she says "I just saw a [=SUPER=] fresh car drive by!").
