The ability to fling oneself around an environment gracefully. Wall-running, jumping, massive drops, climbing, and other physical activities are what acrobatics is all about.
Characters either begin with multiple outfits, unlock them through play, or purchase them as in-game items. These costumes are sometimes integral to play.
In many games the player is given the power to harm and or kill creatures. Many games have been brought to spotlight by groups like the rather militant PETA.

The study of and search for remains of human culture and history (or that of other civilizations).

A large omnivorous mammal that can be white, brown, or black. Despite their ferociousness, they are also associated with being soft and cuddly, as in teddy bears. Bears are also known to eat stairs. Scientists say that because "bears eat stairs" rhymes the bears are naturally inclined to do so.
A proprietary video codec (.bik/bk2 extension) developed by RAD Game Tools and used in a very large number of video games.

Climbing is a common tradition in games, particularly platformers. There is often a particular type of surface that can be climbed, and it has a recognizably different look than other surfaces in the game. Climbing ladders or stairs doesn't count.
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.
Cutscenes that do not take into account the specific gear that the player has equipped.
The main line of distinction between victory or failure in video games, death is the process of a biological being ceasing to be alive.
Some games have included developers commentary. These comments can be in text form, audio that plays in the game or the menus, or video. Sometimes they are just added in the collectors editions.
Sometimes you want a challenge, sometimes you wanna coast.

The concept of using two weapons at once, often for more damage at the cost of accuracy, the use of a shield, grenades, or other similar accessories.

This concept is for games where at least one of the main characters is female.
The last boss you face in a game, usually representing the final climax of the game.
Game Over originally appeared in pinball machines, and later, arcade machines. When players lose at a game, it is game over.
