This is for games where the player characters are animals. While every human conception of an animal is to some degree anthropomorphic, this genre is reserved for games in which that is less true than others.
In particular, games in this genre should feature animal characters playable as PCs in which:
- the animal character has no thumbs
- the animal character generally does not use weapons or tools
- the animal character does not drive vehicles or ride other animals
- the animal character does not wear clothing.
Some minor exceptions occur, such as the woven grass bags of Bunnies & Burrows.
If you are looking for games where the animal PCs do have thumbs, use weapons, drive vehicles, etc., see Animal (Anthropomorphic).
