Video games are exactly as the name implies, video games.

OverviewEdit

Video games play a large role in the Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai story-line, and as any other reference to the real world (like light novels that are often mentioned on par with games), they are mostly used as tools to create humorous situations, or parody some real world phenomena (i.e. games or their developers). Almost every character plays them from time to time, whereas Sena is seen playing them constantly.

Gaming Console'sEdit

PS3 ReplicaEdit

The PS3 stands for Play States 3. It is a square shaped gaming console. It has controllers that resemble a real life PS3 dualshock controller. It also has controllers that resemble the real life Play Station move controllers.

PSP ReplicaEdit

The PSP stands for Play Stati Portable or the Play States Portable in the anime. It is a handheld gaming console. They come in various colors though they all have a bubble-styled diamond-shape on the back. Sena has a gold-colored one. Yozora has white and silver-colored one. Kobato has a pink one that Kodaka borrows on occasion. Various other PSP's have been seen in the series being owned by random background characters. On the cover of the Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai Portable Strategy Guide, Yozora is seen holding a baby-blue one. On the game case of Boku wa Tomodachi ga Sukunai Portable, Sena is seen holding a red one while Yozora has a blue one. Kodaka has been seen using a black one on a chapter cover.

Rika's Gaming Headset and ConsoleEdit

Rika assisted in the development of this game console and received a beta version of it. It is a square-shaped white console that comes with many black wired controllers and white eye visors with a green strip across them. These visors were described as being the latest head-mounted display from "Largehead Corporation". Rika also said that these visors may go on sale at some point hinting at the possibility of them being cross-console devices.

PCEdit

The characters have been seen using various PC's. They are normally in the form of a laptop. Sena has been seen using a pink one. Rika has been seen using a smaller black one and one with a yellow back.

Super Famicon and Omega DriveEdit

These are two older gaming consoles mentioned by Yozora. They are based off of the Super Famicom and the Sega Mega Drive consoles.

GamesEdit

Dating SimsEdit

Dating sims presented mostly as galge or galgames (and it's derivative eroge, a portmanteau of erotic game) played by Sena (rarely by Kodaka). However after Rika's appearance, dating sims types broadened to otomege, dating sims suited for females. (played by Rika, Sena and Yozora).

Kirameki School LifeEdit

Also known as TokiMemo or Sparkling School Life (in English), is a galgame firstly played by Sena in volume 2. Game presented from the perspective of male character, high school boy who wants to conquer hearts of school's beauties.

The protagonist has stats (intelligence, sports etc) which at the beginning of the game are low, and must be, on player's choice, upgraded along the way of game. This influences his overall reputation and popularity in school, but other than that, the most important thing in TokiMemo is various relationships with player's targets and other characters. For example success of conquering one character may be defined by player's attitude towards other possible target, which if it's bad can lead player to bad ending. The game is based on Tokimeki Memorial.

The game has an otomege counter-part titled "Tokomeite Memory Days - Girls Version 4".

Monster HunterEdit

Shortened as MonKari, it is an RPG game where players form a party to hunt monsters and obtain items. Seen playable in the PSP

Romancing Saga XIVEdit

Romancing Saga is an RPG game only playable with Rika's gaming headset. There are at least fourteen Romancing Saga games. The game features character classes, some albeit peculiar, and - like Monster Hunter - has player battle with monsters.
