A list and grouping of military jargon in games
Procedural Generation refers to the creation of content algorithmically as the game is running. This content generally coexists with standard, authored content; the two are not mutually exclusive.
When fighting is no longer relegated to the ground, but can also take place in the air.

This concept occurs in many RPGs and Sci-Fi games. The Ancient Advanced Civilization Technology is often a giant weapon (Halo Rings, Giant of Babil, etc.) that becomes a major plot focus in the stories of these games.
Durability refers to the condition of the currently equipped weapons and armor, among other things. Overusing the said item without repair generally results in it breaking or otherwise becoming non-functional. Many games with role-playing elements incorporate this feature.
