    Some games provide tips during loading screens. These tips can relate specifically to the area that the player is about to enter (e.g.: Borderlands), something about the game's universe (e.g.: Dragon Age: Origins), how to use the controls (e.g.: how to cook a grenade), or something humorous (for example: Guitar Hero 3 wishes players good luck before starting "Through the Fire and Flames"—a notoriously difficult song to play).

    Sometimes, in games that have long loading times, numerous tips will be presented to the player. These tips often repeat after a certain amount of time.
