H-games (or, more properly, ''eroge'', an abbreviation of erotic game) are VideoGames with [[{{hentai}} sex]] or [[{{Ecchi}} heavy]] FanService in them.

Though there are some examples of eroge in nearly every genre, the most common forms are the DatingSim (especially in the early examples of the genre) and the VisualNovel (more popular in recent years). Also common are 3-D simulators like ''Artificial Girl'', which throw out the plot entirely and leave in only the [[{{Pun}} bare]] minimum of DatingSim elements in favor of more JigglePhysics.

Although the term "H-game," literally translatable as "pervert game," would suggest otherwise, the erotic content is sometimes about as important as similar content in an R-rated film. Many games tend to have only have one sex scene at the end after hours of play and in a large number sex scenes can be disabled by menu options. As a result, [[BleachedUnderpants many are re-released with said content cut for the sake of reaching a wider audience.]] There is a large crossover between VisualNovel and PornWithPlot because of the more story-oriented nature of Visual Novels.

%%Do not turn this into a list of character types. TypeLabelsAreNotExamples.
In general, the protagonists will be one of certain specific character types, and only rarely if ever generic and faceless. {{Nice Guy}}s and TroubledButCute characters who may be flawed or even somewhat [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold jerks with a good heart]] can be found in games with a lighter tone. The HandsomeLech is also a popular character archetype that is rarely portrayed negatively. Darker games may employ an unlikeable {{jerkass}} who changes for the better or for the worse, and some may even use a CompleteMonster who is either a VillainProtagonist, or not human and subject to BlueAndOrangeMorality. In either case, completely devoid of morals.

These games popularized, largely through VisualNovel works, the {{Netorare}} genre.
