Greatest hits is a general term for re-releases of games which have sold a certain number of copies, as part of a program managed by the console manufacturer.
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
Kaiju is the Japanese term for monster or strange beasts, commonly associated with giant monsters such as Godzilla. Kaiju appear as enemies in games, but just as often they are controlled by the player.
In some action oriented videogames, the player is able to launch enemies into the air, and can sometimes proceed with follow-up attacks.
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.
Two or more characters are featured on the game's box art.
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).
Power Ups can be used to give the controlling character, or any other character, temporary or permanent upgrades.
Sudden Death occurs when two or more players/teams have the same score at the end of the game. It can also be a penalty that activates when a player of match is taking too long. The players will then have to get rid of each other in a hurry.
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.
