Common in modern war video games, air strikes are usually used to take out large targets such as enemy vehicles or buildings. Laser designators are often used by the player to illuminate the target for a massive aerial attack.
Players can design a base or dungeon for their characters to inhabit.

CTRL 1-9 = CTRL Group. Crucial to battlefield success, using Control Groups in most RTS games allows one to better manage ones forces.

Skirmish modes are found mainly in strategy games. They involve playing multiplayer game modes against AI opponents.
War is a series of organized conflicts carried on by force of arms between two or more nations or groups. Whether it never changes or has already changed is up for debate.
A devastating future war in many game's narratives. Some games take place in a post-World War III setting where humanity struggles to live with the consequences of WWIII, while other games are centred around preventing global warfare from ever happening.
Games often use letters like X and Z in the title to make their game seem more edgy, blatantly misspelling the title of their game in the process.
