A game that uses a mixture of 2D & 3D techniques. Commonly used to describe the use of either 3D graphics restricted to a 2D perceptive, or 2D graphics used to fake the appearance of a 3D perceptive.
Sure, these days have almost every game sporting the newfangled 3D, but way back when, everyone had to live with plain old 2D. 2D, or two dimensions, limit the game to scrolling backgrounds, but some games even now make use of this basic concept.
Action RPG (Action Role-Playing Game), also known as ARPG, refers to RPGs (role-playing games) that use direct, real-time, reflex-oriented, action combat systems, instead of the more abstract turn-based or menu-based battle systems.
Attributes are a numerical representation of a character's abilities who have their roots in RPGs. Today, attributes have spilled over to a wide range of game genres.
A mechanic used mainly in Japanese RPGs of both the action and turn-based variety.
An organism consisting of both natural and artificial systems.
First-Person is a vantage point that attempts to simulate looking through a game character's eyes. It is most commonly found in first-person shooters, racing games, and visual novels, and to a lesser extent in other genres, such as RPGs, 3D platformers, and adventure games.
It's not just for airplanes anymore: Game mascots and MMO players alike have taken to the skies. Players can use flight to quickly navigate large levels, find hidden items, or take opponents down.
Enemies in RPGs that are visible on the overworld map and that are engaged in combat when touched. Examples include Earthbound and Paper Mario.
An overworld is a simplified view of the game world that allows players to freely move to different locations or levels.
Video game combat in which combat actions are performed in real-time, rather than through a turn-based structure.
A Role-Playing Shooter (RPS) is a game that rolls both Shooting and Role-Playing elements together.
Game mechanics traditionally found in role-playing games that are incorporated into a non-RPG title.
Games whose titles consist of a single word.
Space is usually empty, but sometimes it's filled with virtual death machines.
A game perspective that views the action from above, commonly at a fixed position and/or rotation.
