This page is a combination of multiple support pages that aren't "help" but still are nice to have around.


Glossary

You may be looking for a similar glossary. This one is a limited glossary for common Video Game terms, whereas the other is a glossary of wiki terms.

Many answers are best described by TV Tropes.

Canon

Official facts about a series, based on what the developers/creators decide. As opposed to fanon.

Encyclopedia

"A book or set of books giving information on many subjects or on many aspects of one subject and typically arranged alphabetically." Or, just think of Wikipedia.

Fanon

Fan based information about a game that is not officially acknowledged by the game's creator(s). This site is considered fanon, as it contains many "facts" about characters and their games differently than their creators officially recognize. As opposed to Canon. See the related word fan theories.

Fan theories

Guesses by fans about the facts of a game. Notably, this category contains conspiracy theories, and many as wildly incorrect as often as it is unusually right on.

FPS

First Person Shooter, or a shooting game from a first-person perspective.

HP

HP means hit points, the default measure of health in video games. Attacks decrease hit points, eventually killing the enemy. This system was put in place to lengthen and simplify battles, rather than saying that every hit wounds the character and instantly kills them. However, some moves take away large amounts of hit points to get the same effect.

In this setting, rarely does HP refer to the electronics company.

RTE

RTE stands for Real Text Editor; The default visual editor here.

Spoiler

Information that gives away details about a plot before the user experiences or finds out in the story. Usually "ruins the ending", as this information may reveal who dies, who wins, and what the epilogue explains before the gamer progresses to that point.

Need to Know (N2K)

Need to Know is a section (which may become its own page if it gets big enough) where users can post videos, links to their favorite games, and links to other places that are very relevant to the wiki that everyone should see. This section is closely monitored to make sure that the stuff remains relevant. And these aren't ideas, they are inspiration!
