Videogame Glossary : Introduction

I've come to realize that as I've been playing videogames for the past 33 years, I've developed my own set of terms for things I experience in many of those games.

A search of the internet reveals that others have assembled more generic videogame glossaries, which can be useful for underestanding the common terms used by most gamers and in the games industry:

A retro-gamer's view from Recycled Gaming

A guide for unknowing parents at What They Play : A Parent's Guide To Gaming

A scholar's view at Half-Real

But I've got my own terms to add to the lexicon. Look for upcoming posts on this blog detailing these terms under the label "Videogame Glossary" as I remember them.
