    I ran a search first, and nothing came up, so I hope this hasn't already been done before. I'm curious to hear folks' favorite game terms. Not game-related stuff, such as "noob," "pwn," etc., but something like 1Up, double-jump, and the like -- stuff from actual games -- any time period, any genre.

    NO SCOPE

    Okay, now seriously.
    I like the term "desperation move".
    And I can't really think of anything else...

    EDITZ: Button mashing and grinding are cool too.
