Family Stadium, commonly abbreviated as Famista, is a baseball video game series developed by Namco (currently Bandai Namco Games). The name of the series is a play on Famicom, the Japanese name for the Nintendo Entertainment System. World Stadium is a related Namco series published for non-Nintendo systems, such as arcade, PC Engine, and PlayStation.

The art style of the games is different from the box art and the actual in-game graphics. The box art uses a human-like (although the faces are drawn in a cartonish way) for the characters, while the in-game graphics usually represents the characters with fingerless hands that resemble to spheres and most of the baseball players lacks a nose and ears on their heads.

A song used in some of the video games is "The Other Day I Met a Bear".
