Video Game Phrases: What They Mean and Why They Are Silly

Casual gamer, "mature" games, shmup, Triple A title, free to play, Metroidvania. What do these phrases mean, and why are they silly? (Casual games, Culture, Retro)

I think this opinion-piece is silly.
It has six phrases, two of which are complete tripe (the last two, I think the author got lazy and threw in "MATURE" and "SHMUP" for the heck of it so he could spew this rubbish out quicker and get money from ads).

Nope, I wanted to address those terms, and this stuff was just for fun more than anything. Also, our website does not currently have ads.

Very good points on casual and mature terms. Haven't heard of Shmups before.
