Computer Games is a 1982 album by funk musician George Clinton, released on Capitol Records. Though technically Clinton's first "solo" album, the record featured most of the same personnel who had appeared on recent albums by Parliament and Funkadelic, both formally disbanded by Clinton in 1981. Conceived in the aftermath of a period marked by financial and personal struggles for Clinton, "Computer Games" restored his popularity for a short time before P-Funk fell victim to renewed legal problems and scant label support in the mid 1980s.

The single "Loopzilla" hit the Top 20 R&B charts, followed by "Atomic Dog" which reached #1 R&B but peaked at #101 on the pop chart.

The album was listed by Slant Magazine at #97 on its list of "Best Albums of the 1980s."
