Sure, these days have almost every game sporting the newfangled 3D, but way back when, everyone had to live with plain old 2D. 2D, or two dimensions, limit the game to scrolling backgrounds, but some games even now make use of this basic concept.
An AI companion is a computer-controlled ally who follows and aids you through your adventures or who requires your protection. The AI companion's survival is often essential to game and story progression.
The form a character takes when they have undergone a fundamental physical or psychological change. This is usually the result of training, magic, or a specific event.
A boss fight is a culminating challenge that pits the player against one or more enemies representing a greater threat and/or difficulty than those previously faced. These scenarios typically feature unique antagonists.
A video game creation tool.
Currency has all forms in video games. It is used to buy characters, vehicles, weapons, and more.
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.
The wear and tear of a character's outfit as he or she receives damage. It can be done for realism, but often serves to titillate.
A destructible environment means the player has the ability to destroy his/her surroundings. This allows players to use the environment to their advantage.
A double jump is the ability to jump while already in mid-air to get some extra lift. In reality, double jumps are not possible and violate fundamental laws of physics.
An numeral indication of how much damage a character can sustain. The loss of all hit points results in the death of the character or another penalty.
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.
The concept of affecting the universe through supernatural methods, breaking the fundamental laws of science.
Characters controlled by the game for players to interact with, as opposed to player characters which are controlled by whomever is playing the game.
Nudity is qualified as either exposed buttocks, breasts, or genitalia or general lack of clothing. Video game nudity is largely a rarity outside of the PC market.
In many games such as Devil May Cry and God of War, Orbs, or "Souls", if you will, spawn out of the enemies you destroy and provide you with either sweet life or power. Many times these "Orbs" can also be used as a currency of sorts to upgrade.
Any character you can control in a game is a Player Character (PC), as opposed to a non-player character (NPC), which is a character that can only be controlled by the game.
The act of forcing someone to engage in sexual activity against her or his will. Generally considered one of the worst things one human being can do to another.
Characters that are designed to be scantily-clad.
A Secret area is a place hidden that few will find unless they know where to look.
An intimate physical activity between two or more individuals.
Female video game characters are often designed with impossible figures and proportions, outfits that are unrealistic, or end up in completely over-the-top poses designed to show off their bodies. Famous examples include Ivy from Soul Calibur series, and the entire female cast of Dead or Alive.
Side-scrolling games present the world as viewed perpendicular to the direction the characters are facing on screen. With a heavy focus on lateral movement, objectives are often met by moving from one end of a stage to the other.
A lead character who never says a word, despite being spoken to.
The skeleton is the framework of the human body.
Featured mainly in fighting games, special attacks usually require more than just pressing a button to activate. They are usually unique or at least varied between characters.
A gameplay mechanic which allows the player to move faster than the normal speed. Usually for a set amount of time.
A succubus is a demoness with the appearance of a beautiful woman that seduces men to steal their energy during sexual encounters.
Propelling oneself with kinetic usage of limbs while submerged in liquid (or otherwise fluid material).
A transformation is a different stage or form for something. Usually an upgrade.
