A protagonist who lacks some or all of the qualities traditionally seen as heroic.
Necessary to sustain life in organic creatures, the crimson fluid known as blood tends to make appearances when the body's structure is compromised in some way, a very, very common occurrence in videogames.
When blood will splash textures on walls or floors and even roofs.
Sometimes, rather than building a character model from scratch, a developer will sometimes use a real person as a template and use his or her physical attributes to create a similar character model to be used in their video game. In some cases that real reason will appear as themselves in games.
Games based on TV shows, which includes live-action and cartoons.
A gang isn't just two crude dudes, it's a whole mess of them. There's all kinds of different gangs represented in games: street gangs, organized criminals, and even high school cliques.
A system that gives a game the technical capability to implement the effects of gore which include but are not limited to, dismemberment, charring, beheading and gibbing. Gore systems have progressed significantly over the years from enemies scattering into pixels to highly detailed body tearing.
Characters who speak with an Italian flavoured accent, usually second generation immigrants.
The act of breaking the law.
These games are based off of established licenses, such as movies, comics, or TV shows. Examples are the James Bond 007 and Spider-Man franchises.
Murder is the act of ending the life of another living thing against its will without the sanction of a higher governmental authority, such as the casualties that result from acts of war. It is generally intentional, at least in a legal meaning, but not necessarily.
Criminals banded together with a common goal in mind. Can range from a band of thugs to The Mafia.
Larceny by threat of violence. In video games you either plan and executes such robberies, or your job is to prevent them.
The American Mafia which originated in Sicily and took root in Eastern America around the 20th century. It is also known as Cosa Nostra meaning "Our Thing". The explosion of Mafia activities and power in America happened in 1920's and their power lasted well into the 1970's and 1980's.
An organized crime syndicate often consisting of members with shared ethnic backgrounds or cultural beliefs.
Anguish of body or mind. Can be used by authority figures to extract sensitive information that would not be given under normal circumstances.
A malevolent character whose goals are evil in nature. While villains are commonly featured as antagonists, not all antagonists are necessarily villains.
