One of the most challenging aspects of video-games culture for a newcomer, especially for a busy parent, is trying to learn and understand the many, many acronyms and specialised terms. GameHub HQ entries are jargon-free, so you can get the information you need as easily and painlessly as possible, but there are still some words worth knowing. Every Monday, we break down one Word Worth Knowing from the world of gaming.

What is GG what do you need to know and why do you need to care?

What It Is: GG = “Good Game!”

What It Means: “GG!” is a short compliment used at the end of competitive online multiplayer game rounds to indicate an enjoyable session. It indicates that players have played fairly and well, with a minimum of cheating or anti-social behaviour.

Why You Care: Saying “GG!” to team mates and opposing players is a mark of respect, sportspersonship and politeness, and is considered good “netiquette.”
