Video game concept

Important events that could benefit from player attention can and will happen without player's intervention unless the player goes to deal with them in time.

The first video game about Unattended events was released in 1987.

Accolade, Capcom and Stardock has published most of these games

Player may be completely unaware of the events until much later, requiring chance (or metagaming) to actually encounter them normally. The event's effects or the lack thereof may or will be noticed by the player later on.

Limitations:
* Strategy games not entirely story-driven have this by nature and should therefore not normally be tagged.
