Words In Games

In this article, we will be learning about words in games. These words don't only appear in games (whether digital or otherwise). Whether you are a gamer or not, you should be able to figure the answers to the questions. These words, used in a gaming setting, are applicable to life. So, let’s learn more about words in games below.

 

Points To Remember

For all these words, think if you have seen them elsewhere:

  1. In a book?
  2. In an advertisement?
  3. In a sport/ activity?

It is important for you to recall these words and how they are used because you will be able to connect the dots better, and things will make more sense for you.

 

Practice Questions

Question 1:

Computer games that require you to hide, sneak and not be detected are all about __________.

  1. aggressiveness
  2. stealth
  3. originality
  4. flexibility

Answer:

(2) - stealth

Explanation:

The correct answer to this question is option (2) - “stealth”. “Stealth” means hidden or cautious action or movement. So, if you are stealthy, then you are good at doing things without being seen or noticed.

 

Question 2:

In some online games, there are people who have authority over the other players and are responsible for carrying out the activity/game. This also applies to many real world organisations and situations. What do you call these people?
 

  1. Teachers
  2. Bodyguards
  3. Administrators
  4. Librarians

 

Answer:

(3) - administrators

Explanation:

The correct answer to this question is option (3) - "administrators". If you read the first line carefully, it describes some people who are responsible for carrying out the activity. Administrators are people who are responsible for carrying out some activity and have authority over other people and things.

 

Question 3:

In some games, there is a person who enforces the rules, makes decisions and is a figure of authority. Which of the following words is NOT an example of such a role?

 

  1. Spectator
  2. Referee
  3. Judge
  4. Official

 

Answer:

(1) - spectator

Explanation: 

The correct answer to this question is option (1) - "spectator". Official, referee and judge are people who enforce rules, make decisions and have authority. So, by eliminating all these 3 options, we have the correct answer, i.e. option (1). A spectator is someone who watches a show, game or any other event.

 

Question 4: 

In a game of tag/ catching or something similar, players tend to set a “boundary” before playing. What does that mean?

 

  1. The limit of how far one is allowed to go.
  2. A judge or referee.
  3. A time and date for the players to meet up for a game.
  4. A special set of instructions for new players.

 

Answer:

(1) - the limit of how far one is allowed to go

Explanation: The correct answer to this question is option (1) - "the limit of how far one is allowed to go". Setting a boundary means setting a limit within which the person has to stay. For instance: I have a friend who doesn't like to be touched. So, he set a boundary for us and all of us respected that boundary. Therefore, we should not push anyone to do things they can't tolerate.
