"Games" is a song by American R&B singer Chuckii Booker, from his second studio album Niice 'n Wiild. The single spent one week at number-one on the U.S. Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart and peaked at number sixty-eight on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100.[1]

Until Trey Songz's song "I Invented Sex" from 2009-2010, "Games" was the most recent song to peak at number-one on the U.S. Billboard R&B chart while failing to reach the Top 40 on the Billboard Hot 100.

In 1995, The Luniz sampled the song on the track "Playa Hater" from the album Operation Stackola.

In 1996, Mark Morrison sampled Booker's "Games" in his 1996 hit song, "Return of the Mack".
