A type of video game based around video clips [[note]][[WebVideo/{{Benzaie}} "Full Motion Video! A nice-sounding name that could be shortened as just… video."]])[[/note]]. Nowadays they are best remembered for a lack of interactivity - as ''WebVideo/TheAngryVideoGameNerd'' once put it, "It doesn't even feel like you're playing a game. It feels like you're watching a movie. A ''bad'' movie." Gameplay consisted mostly of pressing buttons at the right time, choosing correct sequences of clips, or playing other games that just used the video as a backdrop.

* ''VideoGame/MegaRace'', which used a live-action host combined with CG effects for cutscenes and had racetracks that played out as prerendered videos. Despite the heavy reliance on [=FMVs=], it's held to be a pretty fun arcade-style racing game with a respectable cult following.
