Poking fun at a specific existing work, whether a game, a movie, or something else, by imitating and exaggerating its characteristics. Some games use parody here and there, while others are entirely parodic.
Satire is a form of humor that ridicules aspects of real-world society and culture, usually making a serious but indirect point about the subject that the player is allowed to infer. Games such as Metal Gear, EarthBound, Grand Theft Auto, and Fallout, for example, satirize American culture.
Sidekicks, different from partners, are less powerful, less important characters who support the main protagonist and generally stick by their side.
Even in settings with many different races, sometimes a specific character will be of a race no one else in the setting recognizes. While usually it is a plot point, occasionally it is a running joke that nobody knows what species they belong to. Usually the characters are very unique.
Voice Acting is the art of providing voices for characters in games, television shows, films, radio programs, and other forms of media.
