The major exception to this rule is that, because they're easy to design, most if not all houses will have bookshelves, implying that reading is a common pastime (never mind that high literacy rates are almost completely a modern trend, making them out of place in medieval-era worlds). Expect to run into PamphletBookshelf if you examine them.

* In the Wizarding World of the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' books, there is only ''one'' main sport, Quidditch (with an American game, Quodpot, mirroring the {{Cricket}}[=/=]UsefulNotes/{{Baseball}} and UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball[=/=]UsefulNotes/AmericanFootball divides in the Muggle world), although others are mentioned, and wizard chess is relevant in the first book only. Likewise, there is only one publicly available broadcast network, the WWN, that's ever being listened to. Of course, there's nothing to stop them going to the cinema or the theatre along with the {{Muggles}} or listening to the BBC instead, but canon suggests that this is not common. [[HiddenElfVillage To put]] [[GatelessGhetto it mildly.]]

* In ''Series/StarTrekDeepSpaceNine'': There's Quark's. Though Quark does his best providing casino style gaming and holosuites that can accommodate any fantasy. And there was one episode where someone started a business featuring some kind of futuristic slot machine, but they turned out to be RealityWarper {{McGuffin}}s that were interfering with the nature of probability and [[StatusQuoIsGod they were gone by the end of the episode,]] never to be mentioned again.

Somewhat justified as Deep Space Nine is a fairly small SpaceStation that serves as a glorified [[SpaceTruckers space truck-stop]], with a permanent population of a few hundred at most, and it's not like the nearest planet is more than a few hours away.

[[AC:First-Person Shooters]]
* In the ''VideoGame/HalfLife2'' [[WhatCouldHaveBeen beta]], evidently the only entertainment available in City 17 was the Manhack Arcade, where citizens would go and play a quasi-FPS where they hunt down criminals with the eponymous flying buzzsaw drones. Naturally, [[AndYouThoughtItWasAGame these were real manhacks and real people being cut down]]. (In the release version of the game, the Arcade is nowhere to be seen and the manhacks are never implied to be anything but autonomous drones. Also, [[{{Dystopia}} there's no entertainment at all]].)

*** The demise of Sin allows entertainment to come big in ''VideoGame/FinalFantasyX2''. Whether it's concerts, Sphere Break or games of chance at the Calm Lands, the people of Spira have any number of ways to fritter away their time. But for many, Blitzball still rules and it becomes available in the game's final chapter, albeit in a much different form.

* ''VideoGame/{{Final Fantasy XIII-2}}'' however, averts this. There are mentions of Video Games, TV shows, movies, artwork, plays, a visitable Casino with Slot Machines, card games and chocobo racing (Though given the Casino exists in another world, it may not count)
