    Level grinding was my favourite. Great list and one which could definitely be expanded over time.

    I'm still reading the article, but I've never heard anyone use "energy bar" in gaming; I've always seen "health bar" or "health meter" or "HP".

    Great article, Level Grinding was my favourite, closely followed by Super Combo & Combo Breaker. Hooters you legend!

    There must be a band called Super Combo! Someone start it if not!

    Wow! Fantastic article Mr. Houghton but I almost missed it! You guys really need to update the 'Must Read' and 'Featured Content' on the homepage a little more often because to me it has been the same for about 1-2 weeks. Just me, or the same for everyone else?

    1-Up: Gamer - An extra life. Non-Gamer - An advantageous position over another person. I love how some of these my girlfriend actually knows because they cross over into zombie film territory.

  • ThatGamerDude - March 21, 2012 7:38 p.m.

    What about "power-up"? Would that even be one? "Hacking" and "bug" can also be some too.
  • Hobogonigal - March 22, 2012 1:38 a.m.

    Good ideas! Power-up: the act of turning on a household appliance.
  • masterjoe123 - March 21, 2012 7:35 p.m.

    Why didn't anybody think of "Boss"
  • jdognasty - March 21, 2012 7:03 p.m.

    i think toon could have easily made the list
  • brickman409 - March 21, 2012 6:37 p.m.

    i have never heard anyone use sprite as some kind of fairy. whenever most people heard the word sprite they think of the soda
