I left out peasant, fanboy and master race on purpose, they aren't really used by so-called journalists or critics all that often.

I would have liked to add other words, there are hundreds more. If your most hated word isn't here, please post it.

My choice was compelling, I hate this word.

Casual has plenty of uses outside of insults, y'know. It describes a trend in gaming that opens up a game for a larger audience, and there are good and bad games that resulted from it.

Plants vs. Zombies.
Peggle.
Mighty Quest for Epic Loot could become good.
Free games on IOS that don't hound you constantly about money, like Fruit Ninja and Jetpack Joyride.
Cut the Rope is enjoyable, for its price.
