PlayStation rolls out the first-ever “gamer dictionary”

Sony has just released an “ultimate list of popular game-related terms” in what could well be the very first “gamer dictionary.” This covers all kinds of territory in terms of usage, providing definitions for words like speedrun, permadeath, and ragequit.

Sony invites players to “discover the definitions of some of gaming’s most popular words, terminology and slang”. The dictionary contains more than 100 terms and expressions that are common in the game world.

Although the dictionary contains a few dated terms along the lines of “noob” and “git gud”, the publication contains a surprising amount of practical knowledge. For example, the list of words includes various aspects of game design such as status effects and includes a variety of different technical terms such as procedural generation. The dictionary also helps explain the often subtle differences between closely related genres such as RPG, ARPG, JRPG, and CPRG. Readers will find all the information they need about tactics and strategies along the lines of min-maxes and camping too.


Sony has included examples to explain certain terms more clearly. When it comes to “endgame”, the company explains that “Destiny 2 is known for its endgame, with hours of additional content that will keep players entertained long after the main story missions are completed.” Sony recorded similar entries for Elden Ring, God of War and No Man’s Sky.

This comes in the wake of the news that Sony “will not endorse any statement from any studio about reproductive rights,” said Insomniac president Ted Price. don’t win,” referring to the strong statements on the matter already made by developers like Bungie. Sony Chief Executive Officer Jim Ryan has come under fire for telling company employees that “we owe it to each other and to the millions of PlayStation users to respect differences of opinion between everyone in our internal and external communities.” This was seen as trivializing by many workers.
