* ''Creator/Nintendo'' is popular not only among much older players than the colorful characters generally are marketed at, but are also the most popular among P.C primarily gamers, who generally prefer it over the other consoles due to their exclusive games, as well as most of their games tending to run at 60 FPS, instead of the 30 FPS that most modern console games target and that PC gamers despise.

* ''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, the characters are distinctive and fairly endearing, and the content, while scary, isn't actually that violent (it's content to [[NothingIsScarier imply graphic violence]] rather than [[TorturePorn actually show it]]).

* VideoGame/WiiSports, especially bowling, found a surprisingly large fanbase in nursing homes and senior centers due to being small, easy to set up, easy to play, and not likely to hurt one's foot if you dropped the "ball."

* There are two types of fans of the ''VideoGame/WWEVideoGames'' series. The first would obviously be wrestling fans, teen and preteen boys, older men and women, who enjoy the characters, the spectacle, even the athleticism as if it were a real sport. Then there are the second type of fan: the ones who see the [[Franchise/StarWars Stormtrooper]] helmet in {{CAW}} mode and think, "Hey let's see how well I can make this character up." The ones who see the matches and the booking and the writing and think they can do better and actually set out to do so. The ones who just want to be able to play a real DreamMatchGame and instead of it being just sporting legends or just comic characters or just Nintendo icons you can have Samus, Connor, Jon Snow, McCree, Ken, Scorpion, Leliana, Picard, Jin, Joel, Cloud, Gordon Ramsey, Kusanagi, Mal, Nemesis, Liara, Osama, Chloe, Joker, Sweetwater, Nightmare...

* The [=PlayStation=] 3, when it first came out, was one of the earliest Blu-Ray players, as well as the cheapest widely available one and the only one not prone to frequent mechanical or software errors. As a result, a lot of [=PS3s=] were bought by movie fans, critics, and scholars who would otherwise never touch anything related to video games and would talk of the [=PS3=] as if it were simply a good quality Blu-Ray player rather than a video game system.

* The [[UsefulNotes/SegaMasterSystem Sega Mark III]] (or Master System) was designed primarily to compete with Nintendo's [[NintendoEntertainmentSystem Family Computer]] (or NES), which was the dominant game console in Japan during the 1980's. While it never took off there, nor in America and Germany (due to the stranglehold Nintendo had with third-party developers with their strict licensing policies), it enjoyed great success in Europe and Brazil, where it saw numerous exclusive releases.

* ''VideoGame/PriPara'' is a {{Toyetic}} arcade game aimed at little girls. Due to the friend card feature encouraging interaction with friends that also play the game, the VirtualPaperDoll aspect (from the makers of ''VideoGame/StyleSavvy''!), and just being [[KawaIsa so damned cute]], it has a large amount of adult women that play, affectionately referred to as "Obasan".

* ''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]] (at least once you leave the "Easy"-labeled charts).
