The Concept of Death In Video Games

"Death in video games is always handled differently. Some games you may simply respawn at the closest checkpoint, reload your gun and try again. Others may make you restart with fewer supplies or even back at the start of the level. Death has always been a motivation to succeed in games, as we humans detest failure. Check out more recent years and you can really see the trend towards more inventive ways to die." - Capsule Computers (Capsule Computers, Culture, Dev, Industry)

I think dying in a game is the same as dying in real life

Limbo is good for this. After staying on your character for a few seconds, the screen slowly fades out, not uniformly but in stages as if a candle has just been blown out.
