PlayStation launches a complete glossary of video game terms
Whether it is a newcomer to the world of video games or even a veteran of the days of Atari and Nes, sometimes it can be complicated to keep up with all the different terms that the industry uses. In an effort to help familiarize players, PlayStation has published its "definitive list of terms related to games." The list is quite complete and offers a significant amount of terms that players can find in game -related materials or online. If you have ever wondered what an NPC is and you were too afraid to ask, the glossary seems like a very useful tool and can be found here.
Even for those with a deep knowledge of everything related to the games, it is worth consulting the list, even if it is only to see technical terms such as "GPU", together with jargon expressions as "git gud." Interestingly, there are some notable exceptions of the list, including common terms such as "own games" and "third -party games." Its own game is one created by the owner of the platform (such as PlayStation, Nintendo or Xbox) or a subsidiary owned by that company. Meanwhile, a third -party game is one created by an independent company such as Capcom, Square Enix, Konami, Epic Games, etc. Sometimes, third -party games can be exclusive to a specific platform, or can also be exclusive for time., which means that it will only be available on a particular platform for a period of time agreed.
Only the existence of the glossary shows how much the video game industry has changed in recent decades! As the culture around the games continues to evolve, we are likely to see that more new terms are used. Hopefully, PlayStation will keep this list accessible and updated, which will facilitate players to stay updated on the latest terms of the industry. Too often, there is a lot of control when it comes to games, and efforts like this can make the hobby easier and welcoming.
