Eroge video games
Basic Information

Eroge video games (エロゲー, erogē, an abbreviation of the transliteration "erotic game": erochiku gēmu) or H video games are Japanese video or computer games that features erotic content, usually in the form of anime-style artwork.

In English, eroge video games are often called hentai games in keeping with the English slang definition of hentai. This is sometimes shortened to H video games. In Japan, eroge are also known as 18-kin games (18禁ゲーム, jyuhachi-kin gēmu


Eroge media are not normally sold at standard retail outlets due to the pornographic and sexual nature of the content. In 2009, one such game, Rapelay, was temporarily made available for purchase on the Amazon Marketplace to British shoppers, despite the plan being for the game's release to be limited to Japan only. Amazon pulled the video game from its store after complaints were received from other users of the site.[1]
