Running at 60 FPS is standard for arcade & PC games, but hardware restrictions of consoles often force developers to aim for lower framerates in order to preserve visual detail or allow greater scale. 3D console games hitting 60 FPS are thus uncommon, though the trend of re-releasing games on newer hardware has technically resulted in more 3D console games hitting 60 FPS.
Assassins are people who are tasked with the action of violence against peoples, though their general aims are to be discreet and as minimally violent as possible in order to remain discreet if necessary.

Where a video game comes with something "exclusive" only when you Pre-Order it, sometimes from a specific location. This can be a piece of DLC or it can be something not in-game or even "exclusive" or early access to demo or beta.
An upgrade, in video games, is a practice in which a new release of a game built on the same engine with the same mechanics is produced, but does not completely qualify for a sequel. However, the content difference is significant enough that it is not considered a re-release, either.
Male characters who are depicted in an overtly sexual manner.
Female video game characters are often designed with impossible figures and proportions, outfits that are unrealistic, or end up in completely over-the-top poses designed to show off their bodies. Famous examples include Ivy from Soul Calibur series, and the entire female cast of Dead or Alive.
