Large, scaly lizards. Not to be confused with crocodiles.
Characters either begin with multiple outfits, unlock them through play, or purchase them as in-game items. These costumes are sometimes integral to play.
A protagonist who lacks some or all of the qualities traditionally seen as heroic.
Artificial Intelligence, or AI, commonly refers to the programmed behaviors of NPCs in a game, whether it's the fact that a soldier takes cover behind a wall in Gears of War, or that townspeople cheer upon your arrival to their village in Fable.
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.
Many males, and some females, experience pattern baldness, a gradual loss of hair.
Betrayal is when a person breaks the trust and faith that others have placed in them.
Necessary to sustain life in organic creatures, the crimson fluid known as blood tends to make appearances when the body's structure is compromised in some way, a very, very common occurrence in videogames.
When blood will splash textures on walls or floors and even roofs.
Many Horror and adventure games use blood trails to either signify that something especially violent happened that spot and/or that following it will progress the narrative.
Bats, hammers, wrenches, maces, staves, or even brass knuckles. These are weapons intended for blunt trauma rather than cutting or slicing.
The Art of tracking down criminals and the wanted like for a cash reward.
The ability in a first person shooter to shoot bullets through walls and objects at enemies. This usually results in less damage and accuracy once the bullet passes through the wall/object, and may only work on certain materials or thicknesses.

A clone is a being created as a perfect genetic duplicate of another being, right down to the DNA.
A character in a game who uses unorthodox moves, and who likes to play 'practical jokes' on opponents.
This makes losing to him/her all the more humiliating.
Attitudes towards the Clown vary from person to person. Some find entertainment and humor, others feel really creeped out by their overly flamboyant nature. Ultimately, games tend to take the path of a more horrific presentation to stimulate the atmosphere of a particular setting.
Limited editions of games that include extra "perks" like Making of DVDs and a nice and shiny tin with extra box art
A sight placed on the HUD used to aim and provide a point of reference to the player when looking and interacting with the game world. Although they often aim weapons, they have a variety of uses and have appeared in many games in many different forms.
The act of bending at the knees from a standing position. Crouching is an essential part of many shooters and platformers, and can be used by players to stay behind cover or avoid incoming projectiles.
