Games where characters have a cannon for an arm.
Cybernetics is a broad concept encompassing a range of mechanical devices meant to enhance or replace biological limbs or organs. They are commonly featured in science fiction, particularly in cyberpunk.
A gameplay mechanic that simulates your ability to retain your grasp on an object.
In many games there is a ranking system, the players with the highest point value are listed in a "high score" table.
It's arguably the one move that symbolizes the medium to those outside it. The ability to jump, be it onto a building, a platform, or a skull, is one of the all time most important abilities ever put in a video game.
Games that fill up the player's health upon leveling up.
This concept applies to any game protagonist who through the course of the game's story becomes physically and permanently maimed in some way (by losing an eye, an hand or other body part). They may receive an artificial replacement but the character remains physically changed through the course of the game.
Roping involves moving around, often along very complex paths, by using a grapple without coming to a stop. Made famous by the Worms franchise.
The process of tracing over live-action motion video to create animation.
A term used to describe the flow of action in a typical action game, where the pace is pre-defined to feature fast action and require quick reflexes. As the name suggests, these are games where the player character can run and shoot at the same time.
Be it bionic, demonic, or just plain magic; the supernatural arm often comes alone, but one is usually enough to give its owner extra powers.
The act of traversing space while attached to a piece game geometry. Sometimes via a rope, or other grapple like object.
The Virtual Console is a platform service that first appeared on Nintendo's Wii and later on the 3DS and Wii U. Games from past consoles are emulated to run on the new hardware with the added benefits of system-level save states and other features.
