Glossary Entry: PC

Quick Definition

This acronym can stand for one of two things. Most commonly, it refers to a Personal Computer -- that is, any computer that isn't a Mac*. For example, PC gaming refers to playing video games on your home computer.

The other possiblity is Player Character, which is the character(s) controled by the player in a game. This term pretty much only exists to distinguish the player's characters from NPCs*.
