    Gaming Lingo - Do you use any?
    26-07-21

    Hi everyone!

    I’m a casual gamer and sometimes I come across some gaming words that I’m not familiar with. 😊 This is why I decided to make a list of the most used gaming words and what they mean😉

    So if you’re a newbie, I hope you find this helpful! And if you’re a pro, help us improve this list 😎

    Gaming Vocab List (in alphabetical order)
    • AFK: Away from Keyboard
    • ARAM: All random, all mid (LoL/DOTA2)
    • Buff: increase a character either to make them a viable option for players or as a player may do in-game to improve their character.
    • F:When something sad/unfortunate befalls someone, simply type "F", This is from a Call of Duty game when during a cutscene of a funeral the in-game prompts was "Press F to pay respects" which is quite hilarious so has stuck in the community.
    • FPS: An FPS is a first-person shooter game. This refers to a genre where you see the world through your character’s eyes. Shooters usually show you a weapon in your floating hands, as if you’re the character.
    • GG: Good Game
    • GLHF: Good luck, have fun!
    • GOAT: Greatest of all time
    • Meta: most effective tactics available
    • MMORPG: massively multiplayer online role-playing game. It refers to a game with RPG elements where thousands of players all exist in the same game world simultaneously. World of Warcraft is a great example.
    • Nerf: lower a characters stats/skills as they may be considered overpowered
    • Noob: refers to someone who is clearly new at a game. It can be used as an insult (such as when someone makes basic mistakes) but it’s not necessarily negative.
    • POG: Play of the game
    • Smurf: refers to a skilled player making a secondary account to play against lower-ranked players. Smurfs manipulate the ranking system in order to keep their account at the desired skill level.




    I know there are many more so let’s make this list bigger together 🤩
    What are the gaming words you use? Comment below and I’ll add it to this list!

    Pog! 😄 ("play of the game")
    When the player does a move in the game that's so awesome that it pretty much makes the game

    GG (good game)
    I use this in real life sometimes, and it can either be used to say congrats to someone who did something good, or even as a joke if something bad happens to someone, so it's very multifunctional lol

    @Raine lol I can only imagine what someone who's not into games or doesn't know the references react to people calling others GOATS, must be hilarious.
