Have you guys (gamers) encounter the publics (publics here refers to people who dont play games often) and you accidentally use words like gg, neep, noob or something like gb, bs and farm ? One of the good examples is when you meet with your old friend/high school friend or maybe your cousins (basically people who are not 'gamers'). For me, a lot of times I accidentally use these terms that are only known in the gaming world. The most famous is 'gg' and neep/noob. In the end, I need to explain to them the meaning of these words.

So to help 'gamers' to converse with the 'publics' a whole lot better, I will be explaining the terms used in games especially the ones that involve interaction between the players. I will start with the term 'gg' and 'noob/neep'.

So what is 'gg' actually ? GG is actually the acronym of the word good game. The main use of this word is for example in a dota game, when u win , u will type gg as in good game (thanx for the good game). So from there, the gg word has been modified for use in other type of situation. It now means something like 'its the end', 'doomsday', or maybe 'i'm finish'. Let say in the middle of the game, your team is getting pwned (owned) and you can see that there is no way to win, so u can simply say with ur teammates, 'damn man, this game gg!'. Or when you are playing, you see one of your opponent's hero got their godly item already, then you say 'gg man, they got radiance (the item) already, shyt!'. So you see, this gg word also can be apply in our daily life. Let say you wake up late for work, then your housemate is there. He will say to you 'gg work man!'. It means that your are dead today, your boss for sure will scold you. Another example is when you already checked your results for your final examination. Then your fren(s) ask you about it. You will say something like this 'gg man' because u fail 1 or 2 papers or maybe u fail all of your papers.

"Snipe VS (Vengeful Spirit) FTW !!"


"Hahaahaha, GG VS !!


The next word, 'noob/neep' is actually derived from the word newbie. From newbie, remove the ie. You will get newb and from there, u replace the middle words with oo to make it sounds better and the people who hears it will feel much more insulted. Neep is another word that have the same meaning with noob. So it is basically used to insult another person. Let say, in the game, you ask that person to help you kill an enemy. That person mess everything up and you both ended up dying. You have the right to scold him 'NOOB' because his actions are the same like a newbie (new player). Another example is when a player that is using an intelligent (magician) character and that player uses/builds an agility or strength weapon that wont benefit as much as an intelligent weapon. So that person is obviously a noob because he/she doesnt know what kind of weapon that are suitable for the character. This word can also be used in a real life situation. Let say you friend ask you to help him/her edit some pictures because there is a lot of pictures that needs editing. Then if you ask back 'Hmm what software should I use ?'. You will get flamed 'NOOB'. This is because if you spend hours on the internet and sitting infront of the pc for like almost 24/7 then you should know the software used for editing images like example Adobe Photoshop. Another example is during exam week (if you are still studying). You friend(s) ask you about something that they dont understand in their subject but you should know about it because its a major thing in your studies. It turns out that you dont know anything about it. So this makes you a NOOB because you dont know anything about it hence like a new student.

"These guys must hate me so much!"


"Damn, I'm dying..."


"Hahahaha, NOOB!"


I hope the way I explain these terms is understandable. After this, 'gamers' and 'publics' can use these words freely. Watch out for part 2, part 3 and so on.

    Not to forget, "DOG".

    we use that word when host is a dog.

    XXX has joined the game.

    XXX: Host
    Host: ya?
    XXX: you dog.
    XXX has left the game.

    that explains.

    No. I've played games for the last 15 years and I've never had that problem. What's so hard differentiating games from real-life? I think speaking in gamer lingo is very moronic, even when done between gamers.
