Classes are different archetypes and playstyles that players can choose to play their game with.
MMORPGs, usually action-based, that eschew the traditional class structure in favor of a more customizable form of ability selection.
Cooperative play in games allows humans to play together as a team to accomplish a task. Instead of playing against a human opponent, the team must defeat an AI.
Cooperative Play in some games also means 2 human versus 2 human, this occurs in some Billiards games. (Scotch Doubles / Doubles)
Crafting allows players to create their own items with the correct ingredients. It is used mainly in MMOs and RPGs.
Darkness is used in games to restrict access, increase tension, or just to set a mood. Often the player has access to a light source that can mitigate its effect.
Environments cycle between day and night, often with effects on other aspects of the game.
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.
Concept where everything you need isn't always spelled out for you on the map. Sometimes even the map is not there till you go explore it.
Finishing moves are typically moves that end a fight in a traditional fighting game.
First-Person is a vantage point that attempts to simulate looking through a game character's eyes. It is most commonly found in first-person shooters, racing games, and visual novels, and to a lesser extent in other genres, such as RPGs, 3D platformers, and adventure games.
Some first-person games that wish to immerse the player in the experience more will go as far as to include full body awareness, or the ability to see the player character's body when looking down.
The ability and danger to gain or lose everything someone else or you are carrying, respectively. Usually seen in RPGs and more hardcore MMOs.
A style of play in multiplayer gaming with the purpose of annoying, irritating and angering other players.
A guild is a group of people who are expert at a skill or task and have banded together for ease of employment.
In games guilds take many forms, from massive societies of real people in MMOs, to simple places to level up and receive quests in most RPG's
A feature in many curtain fire games, the point where a character can be hit is a different size than the character itself. Whether this zone is visible or not (it varies from game to game), it allows players to dodge bullet patterns that would otherwise be impossible.
Equines that go 'neigh' and tend to eat hay. Some are the stars of motion pictures. The truest of companions to many adventurers.
Concept in which designers fuse usefulness of multiple classes into a single class. A Jack of All Trades and (usually) Master of None.
The concept of affecting the universe through supernatural methods, breaking the fundamental laws of science.
From Beat-em-ups to fighting games to modern FPS, one dude hitting another has made an enjoyable pastime.
Mythological creatures with the body of the human and the head of a bull. They are often found in video game dungeons, waiting for foolhardy players to stumble upon their lairs. Sometimes they're mindlessly violent, other times they're oddly peaceful and in tune with the world around them.
Combat based on organic (or similarly functioning) mounts. This can include melee or ranged attacks from horseback.
Animals that can be ridden by players to get around faster.
Want to make your character grow how YOU want? These games let you develop whatever skills you want at any time, in any order.
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.
Games which allow players to interact with others over the internet.
Orcs/Orks/Orques are a fictional race of tough humanlike creatures, often with green or black skin, originally coming from the Saxon word for the Normans during the invasion, meaning demon or foreigner.
A persistent world is a game environment that is permanent and dynamic. This is seen in many MMO's.
In some games, total immersion is helped along by allowing players to purchase and customize their own housing.
Player versus Environment, commonly abbreviated as PvE, is a gaming term that originated in MMOs to refer to gameplay in which players fight against computer controlled creatures or characters.
