* ''VisualNovel/KanaLittleSister'', an image source for the trope, it's premise is based on the illness of the main character's little sister and it's exploited to the fullest extend possible in the HGame.

* ''VisualNovel/HigurashiWhenTheyCry'' and its SpiritualSuccessor ''VisualNovel/UminekoNoNakuKoroNi'' form an interesting variation. Their main objective is not to make the players cry, but to ''scare'' them. Despite this, the games still manage to move the player emotionally. They succeeded in doing both in both series. The question arcs are supposed to confuse and scare us, but the answer arcs are straight Utsuge. [[spoiler:Well, except for [[EarnYourHappyEnding Matsuribayashi-hen]].]] Tatarigoroshi-hen is also fueled by tears.

** To explain just how far own the rabbit hole this game goes, then ending of the the above third girls arc culminates in [[spoiler:the player character and the girl strangling their [[AlphaBitch primary bully]] while sweet and soft music plays in the background. The scene progresses to the point where the bully begins convulsing and pisses herself, followed by the two characters letting go of her throat and laughing about how close they just came to actually killing her. Despite the obscenity of it all, it still manages to come off as a highly cathartic and agreeable ending after everything the MC and girl had been put though for the last 5-10 hours of play.]]

%%* ''VisualNovel/SweetPool''

to:

%%* ''VisualNovel/SweetPool''* ''VisualNovel/SweetPool'' is another Nitro+Chiral game that is famous, or infamous rather, for having no happy ending. All six possible endings are bad endings, and they are filled with either TearJerker, NightmareFuel, or both.

{{Utsuge}} are often populated by {{Bishoujo}}-style characters and aimed squarely at a {{Seinen}} (young male) audience. By far the most of them take the form of {{Dating Sim}}s, where the dramatic material is used to give the on-screen girls more depth and character. In some of those games, the drama actually becomes much more prevalent, overtaking the premise of simply trying to date girls. Most {{Utsuge}}, being {{Dating Sim}}s, also contain [[{{H-Game}} quite a bit of the erotic content]] that comes with the territory.

It is rare to find examples without any erotic content whatsoever, although some {{H-game}}s have been re-released [[BleachedUnderpants without adult material]] to appeal to a wider audience, usually without suffering any negative consequences for the story or playability. Still, gaming companies generally don't explicitly market their games as Utsuge, instead emphasizing their DatingSim-nature to appeal to the typically male audience.

* ''VisualNovel/PrivateNurse'': Come for the marketing as an {{H-game}}, stay for the many, many moments of crying your damn eyes out. There is basically one path that leads to a triumphant ending, the rest count as BittersweetEnding if not outright DownerEnding.

Another term with essentially the same meaning, but different connotations is "''nakige''" ("crying game"), which usually refers to games with [[EarnYourHappyEnding depressing stories that get resolved in the end]].
