** In ''VideoGame/{{Fallout 4}}'' there are children found in both the Prydwen and the Institute, [[spoiler: and you're forced to blow up one or both of them depending on who you side with. Also, when blowing up the Institute, you can leave the young [[RidiculouslyHumanRobots synth]] version of Shaun to burn, which gets you some [[WhatTheHellHero harsh comments]] from your faction's tech specialist (unless you sided with the Brotherhood and tell Proctor Ingram that he's a synth, [[JustAMachine making her ok with abandoning him).]]]].

* ''Fallout'''s spiritual predecessor ''VideoGame/{{Wasteland}}'' allows you to attack some mutant kids at Highpool [[DisproportionateRetribution who laugh at you for falling into a stream]]. As you kill them, more kids will appear and the atmosphere will get more and more creepy, ending with [[YouBastard a puppy crawling into a dead child's arms]]. You're then attacked by the [[LaserGuidedKarma Red Ryder]] and his [[Film/AChristmasStory Red Ryder Air Rifle (with compass in the stock]], and once you kill him the camp [[GhostTown suddenly looks as though it had been abandoned for years]].

* While it's never actually shown, in ''Videogame/Portal2'', during the section where Wheatley steers your Relaxation Chamber through the Relaxation Center, you can see shipping labels on other rooms, which (among other things) label the occupant of that chamber as either an adult or a child. This implies that there ''were'' children in the Relaxation Center, meaning [=GLaDOS=] had probably used children as test subjects in the past. Considering the deadliness of her tests, children probably also died horrific deaths at her metaphorical hands.
