    Do you run down the office halls to the water cooler when you're thirsty? Do you jog around the supermarket grabbing items as fast as you can? Do you find yourself sprinting around the nightclub chatting to girls? Do you only walk when going somewhere with a friend and you're forced to walk with them if you want to hear what they have to say?

    When this happens in real life, you look like a freak.

    Are there any games that punish you for this kind of behaviour and result in social disadvantages?

    No. Because it's a terrible and stupid idea.

    You can bump into pedestrians in GTA but all you get is a flavor reaction.

    There are roleplaying servers if you like that.
    You'll get punished for everything there.

    There's a lot more game characters do that would make you look like a freak in real life.

    Well, an important NPC (& main companion) in Disco Elysium remarks upon it somewhat negatively if you keep running around instead of walking normally. Not really a disadvantage though.

    If you're a Nosferatu in Bloodlines, people flip out if they even see you so you have to run around in the sewers to get places, and if you want to become a master of lockpicking in Arcanum, the master lockpicking teacher makes you run around naked, giving you the title of Pervert of Tarant and permanently lowering your opinion rating with them.

    That's just an urban legend though. You should seriously try this one out.

    He remarks on it even if you don't run - it is one of these moments when the game tries to be more clever than it is.

    Way of the Samurai. If you run into someone - he will draw sword and try to kill you. And your characters from previous walkthoughs roam streets as npcs so they actually CAN kill you.

    Morrowind eats your stamina while running. It doesn't really disadvantage you socially that much, except all skill checks are affected by stamina %, including speechcraft and mercantile.
    Skyrim Requiem adds trample/bullrush mechanics to stamina drain so running into people might even be received as attack.

    I don't know of any that do that for running past people.

    Skyrim eats your stamina while SPRINTING. Jogging is still the default and costs no stamina at all. I suspect this is the same for Oblivion/Morrowind but I can't remember.

    Call of Duty, that omniscient artillery of doom makes short work of anyone the moment one strays off the sanctioned path of script explosions and spawning enemies. Socially, Winston Churchill reminds you every time you die you are a wanker.

    I liked the original Fallout, before the developers screwed it up with the patch. In the original, the Overseer explains the situation, and the dire need, and sends the PC out into the world where they either focus on finding the water chip, or betray the vault through negligence, apathy, or malice.

    The game had countdown event timers, and even had ways for the player to influence some of them (for better or worse). The time they were allotted was usually enough to succeed, but if the player failed, or betrayed the vault, then the game shows an appropriate ending. In the case of apathy, the PC is assumed to have gone off on their own, to live out their new life in the wasteland; leaving the vault to its fate—and the game rightly didn't care about the PC's life after that point. The game's story was about the PC who tried to save the vault, not the PC who turned tail and ran away.

    Probably Death to Spies as well, though I don't remember. Also it sucked, and these are bad ideas.

    Neither Morrowind nor Oblivion had sprinting; running drained fatigue (i.e. stamina) in Morrowind, while in Oblivion it merely reduced the rate of fatigue restoration.
