This is a honkin' big page! If you don't feel like scrolling all the way down to whatever term you want to look up, use this "go to" feature instead. Note: numbers are alphabetized according to how the number is spelled when written. So, for example, "3" comes between "S" and "U" rather than before "A."

This FAQ is a Living Document, and will be added to as time goes on. It is NOT intended that this be a "Compleat Encyclopedia" - no names of individuals, companies, or games are defined. And highly technical terms also go beyond the scope of this glossary. The definitions given herein are those which are specific to the game industry (this is not intended to be a "compleat dictionary" of any kind). Sometimes a term herein needs defining, so those definitions are also included (in an effort at flying in the face of the previous sentence).


This FAQ is a work in progress. Reader questions, comments, and suggestions are welcome. Click here to ask about terms you don't see listed, to express disagreement with a definition, or to ask about terms that ought to be added. It is NOT intended that this be a "Compleat Encyclopedia" - please don't bother suggesting inclusion of highly technical terms, or names of particular individuals, companies, or games.
