Animals that follow you or help you on your journey.
Games that have animals as the main character. The character must be playable.
Cartoon characters are personas from cartoons, which are animated moving sequences that are usually drawn but can be computer animated and can come from television, movies, anime or even the web. They can be humans, animals, or even things usually not thought of as living.
Feline animals commonly kept as pets. There are many different breeds and varieties.
Comic book or manga characters who are also in video games. There are tons of games with superheros such as Batman and Spider-Man out there.
The concept of a helpless female character in desperate need of rescuing by a male protagonist, in most cases from a villain, or from a form of impending doom.
A dog is an animal, of which there are estimated to be 400 million of in the world. Said to be man's best friend, they naturally appear in many video games.
Also known as the "Mighty Foot", this first-person kick provides a valuable service to the player. Allows players to attack enemies or destroy items in the environment.
Video games that are based on comic books, manga and graphic novels.
Health is a value that gauges how much damage players can take in a game before they die or pass out. Also known as life in some games. Health is usually represented by a bar or a percentage instead of an exact amount. Found in most non sport games
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 with language selection allow the player to choose which language is displayed or spoken in the game.
These games are based off of established licenses, such as movies, comics, or TV shows. Examples are the James Bond 007 and Spider-Man franchises.
Some games feature protagonists that are not humanoid in nature. These are creatures that do not have human characteristics (i.e. stand on 2 legs, have 2 arms, a body and a head).
Who needs 2D when we've got 3D? 3D, or 3 dimensions, is what we're used to seeing in almost every game these days, letting us do all sorts of awesome stuff like run in circles!
The option to display dialog and other information with text on screen.
Animals that have the ability of speech and in some cases are anthropomorphic.
Videogames that, for better or for worse, are based on an existing non-videogame franchise. Usually drawn from movies, tie-in games have also been made about TV shows, novels, and even one-hit wonder pop bands.
Voice Acting is the art of providing voices for characters in games, television shows, films, radio programs, and other forms of media.
No longer just a pastime for bored individuals, the simple act of whistling has played an integral part in games such as the Splinter Cell series.
