* ''VideoGame/PopNMusic'' was initially a game intended to be played for couples on dates. It ended up being as hardcore of a RhythmGame as its sister series ''{{beatmania}} IIDX'' and ''VideoGame/DanceDanceRevolution'', with most of its current fanbase playing it by themselves instead of with another person, all while retaining the cute and colorful graphics that may [[SurpriseDifficulty lead the uninitiated to believe that it's an easy game for kids]].

* There is a VirtualPaperDoll HGame called 3D Custom Girl that, thanks to the program tso2pmd and the ease of modding, is more often used to make MikuMikuDance models than for its... intended purpose. It's generally a valuable tool to have if you are into MMD.

* Believe it or not ''Franchise/HarvestMoon'' was originally aimed at a male, or at least neutral, demographic. The first few titles didn't even have female protagonists, or they got shafted compared to the men (in that a game with a female player character would end after they got married). You wouldn't know this by the fandom, which consists mostly of (pre)teen girls and young women. The fact the games have increasingly have CastFullOfPrettyBoys you can marry doesn't help, along with the farming and animal aspects.

* The ''TokimekiMemorial'' DatingSim series, though very much aimed at a male audience, acquired a significant female fanbase. In fact, this led {{Creator/Konami}} to create the [[GenderFlip gender-flipped]] "Girl's Side" branch of the series.

* ''VideoGame/FiveNightsAtFreddys'' seems to have a load of fans that are among the FurryFandom, and it shows. [[RuleThirtyFour A lot]]. [[WhatDoYouMeanItsNotForKids It's also very popular with young children,]] since the gameplay is easy to grasp and the characters are distinctive and fairly endearing.

* ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid'' has its intended fanbase of teenage boys and college aged men, and its unintended fanbase of women of ages 16-25 who are in it for the men in skintight sneaking suits, and the [[YaoiFangirl heavy amounts of]] HoYay. Some of them like the explosions and giant robots as well, of course.

** Heck, there are even ''children'' who're fans of the series as well. The most notable are young girls, probably because of the practically all-female cast.



** Also, for some reason it's extremely popular among people on the autistic spectrum. And no, that's not a joke... the ''Sonic'' universe has a pretty heavy amount of [[WorldBuilding world-building]] to it, and since many of its characters adhere to a homogenized character design (two circles for head and body; stick limbs; just pick a species, add a color and a special ability and you're done), it's easy for people to create their own personas and stick them into the world via fanfiction.

* The SNES Super Scope was almost a failure for Nintendo despite being touted as having laser-accurate controls, and Nintendo dropped the device after a year. Only a single game, the launch title ''Super Scope 6'', got an European release. It was ''almost'' a failure because its laser-accurate controls attracted the attention of the US military, who created a SNES military simulation called M.A.C.S. (Multi-Purpose Arcade Combat Simulator) and a recreation of the M-16 rifle to be used with the simulation.
