* In the Wizarding World of the ''Literature/HarryPotter'' books, there is only ''one'' main sport, Quidditch (with an American game, Quodpot, mirroring the UsefulNotes/{{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.]] To be fair, most of the (small) wizarding population seems to be at least partially integrated with Juggle society.

* SidMeiersAlphaCentauri mentions only one one form of recreation per faction when describing the different factions, though this is likely due to the fact that they are unlocked with an early tech, when civilisation on Planet is still rather young and survival itself is a struggle.

** A Klingon restaurant does get mentioned a few times. Apparently it's quite entertaining.

* In an older PS2/Xbox/Gamecube title, ''{{Gladius}}'', YOU were the entertainment, being a school of gladiators and fighting in arenas throughout the game.

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 ''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.

* 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]].)
