Gaming-related phrases nobody but you seems to use

Recommended Posts

Does anyone here use phrases or abbreviations which you learned from gaming, but which nobody seems to use anymore?

For example, what most people refer to as “grinding,” I refer to as “bashing.” This was the standard word used in the MUDs I used to play, but I have never heard anyone use it outside of that context.

I also use “frag” instead of “kill” or “eliminate” when referencing taking down a player in an FPS game, but that term’s usage (while still common) has dropped considerably since the 90s and early Aughts from what I can tell.

I’m curious if anyone else has more of these words or phrases which you use and which seem to have gone out of favour.
