Common Video Game Terms
A video game is an electronic device that involves human interaction and a user interface which generates a visual and audio feedback. With the immense popularity of both console and computer games, it is not surprising that there are many terms that refer to particular parts of video games and their various components. The following are some common terms relating to video games.

Backward Compatible: Backward compatible refers to the ability of a gaming console to run games from a previous model of the console. For example, some PlayStation 3 consoles cannot run PlayStation 2 games, which means they are not backward compatible.

Cut-scene: This is a part of a video game during which players are not able to control anything. Cut-scenes are put in video games to further the storyline, often after boss fights or other major events.

MMOG: A MMOG, or massively multiplayer online game, puts many players together in the game’s world. MMOGs require strategy and cooperation among players to complete more difficult objectives, though easier tasks may be accomplished independently. There are MMOGs for consoles and computers.

NPC: NPCs, or non-player characters, are characters in a video game that are not controlled by a person. Players can usually interact with NPCs.

RTS: RTS, or real time strategy, is a genre of video game. RTS games are designed to challenge players’ reasoning and foresight. RTS games often require a player to take charge of a location’s military or economy. Typically, a town or an army must be created, improved, and maintained in order to complete an objective.

Sandbox: In sandbox video games the game’s objectives can be ignored. This freedom allows for unrestricted enjoyment of the game’s world. For example, if the player does not want to complete a certain task immediately, they can move on to something different.
