Achievements are extra challenges added into video games that sometimes carry a point value or unlock bonus material, and are sometimes solely for bragging rights.
Games that have animals as the main character. The character must be playable.
Games that are specifically based on Internet phenomena, such as memes, stories, and webcomics.
Feline animals commonly kept as pets. There are many different breeds and varieties.

Multipliers award players for playing well continuously. Racking up multipliers is crucial in any point based game in which they are featured.

The phenomenon of time, or at least a character's perception of it, moving more slowly. Bullet time is an enhanced version of slow-mo.
Whether by item or otherwise, temporary invincibility provides the user a brief moment where they are impervious to attack.
