Mobile phones get used as tools of survival game warfare, whilst characters act stupid and die/suicide for 'so bad, it's kinda good?' entertainment purposes. This is why I don't have a phone. Ousama Game has Light Yagami's voice; Mirai Nikki has cute waifu yandere Yuno. Make your choice wisely. Mirai Nikki also has a budget.

I describe Darwin's Game as a cross between Future Diary and King's Game. Both death games with gruesome deaths.

Mayoiga is marketed as a horror however it can be watched as a comedy, similar to Ousama Game. The atmosphere is dark and edgy in both shows, however, Mayoiga is less serious. Both shows are in the mystery genre and neither show tries to explain the supernatural events in a comprehensive way.

Both feature a group of high school students forced into a game where their life is put on the line by some crazy mastermind.

Both series have people forced into a game with rules based off of a similar game that people are familiar with. These series both show a lot of gore and death, but Ousama Game is more graphic with the deaths while Btooom! is more graphic with the violence itself. They both also have a kill to survive aspect.

I feel like every season has an an anime where there's a "game" and only one person can win everyone else dies- If you like watching death left and right and never getting attached to a character but love to watch the world burn this is for you lol. - both use the - only one person can "Survive" - both continue/repeat the death game/cycle over and over again - both show the evil sadistic side of characters that seem innocent on the outside.

Sequels of their respective titles. MC are survivors of their previous killing games. Once again are forced to participate in another killing game with restrictions imposed upon it's participants and are punished if failed to act upon predetermined conditions.

"To live or to die?" Charging straight at you, Ousama Game and Mahou Shoujo Site try their best to grab your attention by utilizing bizarre and outright mind-numbing tactics. For better or for worse, they'll be an experience you won't forget for a while.

Both Boogiepop and king's game utilise mystery to slowly uncover a strange plot filled with mind boggle-ry based around an artificial existence

Similarities - Both worlds feature a death game - Both worlds have contestants that complete challenges/duel each other - Both MCs are outcasts that are interesting in games - The goal in both games is to survive - Both series have betrayal (differing degrees) Differences - Contestants in deatte are chosen randomly VS. Kings Game is where contestants in a class are all selected - Contestants in deatte are granted special powers VS. Kings Game is just average people in a modern world running around and panicking

-the concept of servitude -king being the master and the loser being the slave, except that the loser cannot defy the master's order/s

Well, similar to Ousama game, you have a lot of characters dying and fighting to live. Shiki takes place in a remote village - similar to yonsaki village and surprisingly has a quite a lot of romance to do with the main characters like ousama game. The MC in Shiki starts out as a very cold guy and unwilling to make friends (see that connection with Nobuaki in the first episode?)

As far as unintentional comedy goes, these two are the kings (no pun intented) of the genre, if you are the type of person who enjoys watching bad anime and shredding them apart for all their noticeable mistakes then watching any of these two will prove to be a fruitful experience.

Both involves individual in a game where the stakes were high and the it's even higher for the loser.

Some teenagers find themselves facing a mysterious and deadly enemy. They will try to defeat it, but their questionable decisions will be their downfall.

I get the same feeling of "unhope", where nothing is in the control of the characters,but from something or someone beyond you can't win, no matter what happen, no matter what they do, they will fail.
