An eroge (エロゲー erogē?, a portmanteau of erotic game: erochikku mu) is a Japanese video or computer game that features erotic content, usually in the form of anime-style artwork.

In English, eroge are often called hentai games in keeping with the English slang definition of hentai. This is sometimes shortened to H games.

Types of eroge

Most eroge are visual novels or romance sims. However, there are many other kinds of eroge:

  • Other common video game genres, such as RPGs, with erotic elements.
  • Conditioning game, in which the female character, by performing different types of sexual activities, changes her stats, unlocking additional types of play.
  • "Strip"' versions of traditional games, including but not limited to mahjong, pachinko, poker, chess, and blackjack. Many adult arcade games fall under this category.
  • Interactive video, which is essentially nothing more than an eroge that plays in a DVD player (also known as DVDPG, DVD player game).
  • Sex simulators, often in 3D.
  • Puzzle games with erotic background images.
  • Ero-cha is online sex chat employing full voice chat with voice actresses in real time. This system uses 2D eroge-type characters, as well as erotic game style point-and-click functions.

Eroge may be bishōjo games, otome games, or BL games, although bishōjo games are the most popular. A small number of bara eroge have been produced, mostly dōjin soft.
