The act of taking one's own life.
A paramilitary special force of police used to handle exceptionally dangerous criminals.
A gameplay mechanic where the player must make narrative decisions or dialogue choices in real-time, within a certain time limit, with their choice (or lack thereof) affecting the plot. Timed decisions are essentially a form of QTEs (quick-time events), but differ in the sense that they affect the narrative outcome.

A man whose wife has died.
Microsoft's application storefront introduced in Windows 8.
Women in Refrigerators (or "Fridging" for short) is an unfortunately popular plot device in storytelling where female characters are killed off or brutally harmed for the sole purpose of having an impact on a male character. The term was coined by comic book writer Gail Simone.
A subscription service from Microsoft on Xbox One and Windows 10. Described as "Netflix for video games", users pay a monthly fee to gain access to a range of titles.
Xbox 360 and original Xbox games that have been approved to run on the Xbox One's backwards compatibility feature.
