Video Game Stories

Go To

An index of works about in-universe video games, whether they be real or fictional. These games and their players play an important role in these stories, often incorporating Video Game Tropes and portraying Video Game Culture.

This index doesn't include works that are dedicated to just reviewing video games, like many of those in Video Review Show.

Not to be confused with stories merely taking place within a video game universe. Compare to The Anime of the Game and Video Game Movies, which are both works adapted from video games. See also Parody Video Games, RPG Episode, RPG Mechanics 'Verse, and The Most Dangerous Video Game.
