Two things come to mind. The part in mass effect at the beginning when Nihilus twitches his mandibles around after watching the ground footage of Sovereign,

this one's really good

I also liked the fractal pattern section breaks in the Jurassic Park novel. First time I'd seen fractals.

Also the bit where Malcolm tells them to have the computer try to find more dinosaurs than there was supposed to be. Kind of an introduction to "read as written vs read as intended" and also that computers are not smart.

It suddenly occurred to me the other day that that Tom Cruise movie Edge of Tomorrow is essentially a roguelike.

isn't a big part of roguelikes the randomness?

I'm playing through Subnautica right now and all the little details they add in the documents/voice logs really build that universe well. The thing that blew my mind was early on when you catch and cook local fish- the PDA/helper AI tells you to not turn your nose at it because humans have ate cooked meat for millennia instead of vat-grown nutrient paste blocks. Like of course food is gonna be different in an interstellar civilization when you might not have the space for a giant rear end ranch on a starship.

I haven't play subnautica, but isn't there a hypnotic fish that will 'speak' to you in the voice of the AI, saying poo poo like "go clooossseeerrr, touch iiiitttt, don't resissstttt"
