– A Social Dictionary For Gamers

GamerDiction.comI still vividly recall the way my English teacher once rebuked me for employing the word “Playability” as part of an essay we had to write in secondary school. Back then, the word was a nice little neologism that every reader of magazines such as Amiga Action or The One was familiar with.

If anything, the rate at which these neologisms keep on coming along has accelerated, and so an online resource like this one plays an interesting role.

In essence, this portal will allow you to look up gaming technology and phrases in an instant manner. Moreover, the site is actually user-driven, as contributions from internauts are fully accounted for. In that sense, it can be said that the site takes advantage of the latest social aspects and puts them to good use.

It is a bit difficult to imagine a service like this one causing a web sensation, but (as mentioned in the first paragraph) the word that describes it best is “interesting”. Gamers can check it out and see where they really stand, whereas linguists (who are known for their active interest in all terminological fields) will find it worthy of at least a brief visit. In Their Own Words

“GamerDiction is a social dictionary where users can submit and tag terms and phrases used in PC and console gaming. It’s the first of its kind, and continues to grow daily.”
