    Eroge is a Japanese term derived from the English phrase "erotic game." Games of this nature include explicit depictions of sex acts. It is often stereotypically associated with the visual novel genre, though not all visual novels are erotic in nature, and not all eroge titles are visual novels. Many eroge only have a minimal amount of sexual content, and instead choose to focus on telling dramatic or comedic romantic stories. In Japan, it is often considered not viable for smaller or mid sized studios to release visual novels on the PC without some form of erotic content, resulting in some pornographic scenes being shoehorned into otherwise non-pornographic games. Games that are designed specifically for pornographic purposes are called "nukige".
