ITT: Terms gamers use that are usually used wrong.

I think it's interesting the lingo we use without thinking about it, and we usually use the term wrong, or say to make a point. A few that I've noticed:

OCD - people use this term beyond loosely.

Fanboy - This is used as an insult for anything that someone usually doesn't agree with.

Troll - This is used as an insult for anything that someone usually doesn't agree with.

Cheating - the word Cheating has lost its meaning. We use it to describe anything that's unfair, we call those who beat us cheaters- because of how hard it is to tell the difference. People who use cheat devices (It's in the name) say they are not cheating as well- adding to the botched meaning. It's a word that's used left and right with no precise meaning anymore.

That's just to start it off, what other terms do you see people use incorrectly?

Gimmick. For the love of Jesus that word should never be used again.
