* 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).

* 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.
