Why look at one category when you can view a list of every term documented in the glossary? This page provides such a list, all neatly laid out in alphabetical order for easy browsing.
Over the years, a lot of things about video games have become standardized. This includes the terms that are commonly used to describe things players have encountered in games, and the many ways they've learned to entertain themselves in the gaming community. The terms shown in this category are things you'll probably hear about when talking to gamers of any age.
The internet is a huge place, and it's arrival changed almost every aspect of modern living. It also brought with it a large amount of new concepts and ideas, many of which needed a name. Thus, an entirely new realm of language was born, and this category provides a small guide to what can be found in the online world.
Magic and supernatural things
Fiction is loaded with many different forms of magic, and there are even more supernatural concepts found in the religions of the world. But, since people typically aren't exposed to things outside of their own religion or culture, I've provided brief descriptions of these symbols, concepts, and cultural artifacts in these glossary entries.
One of the biggest downsides of people developing new technologies is that it always creates a slew of new words to explain what everything is and how it operates. Thankfully, it's becoming less and less essential for the average user to understand most of the terms listed in this category, but it never hurts to know what's going on under the proverbial hood.
Types of video games
This is largely discussed on the page "What types of games are there?", but since it's practically impossible to list every possible genre and subgenre, you'll find a lot of them listed here.
Entries here don't neatly fit into any of the other categories, and this is often because these pages deal with issues and concepts beyond slang or jargon. Basically, these are short articles instead of typical glossary definitions.
