Gaming Abbreviations
I've brought up game types in the RPG threads and I was wondering what most people see the major convention abbreviations are

I can think of

FPS = first person shooter
RTS = real time strategy
(C)RPG = role playing game
MMORPG = Massive Multiplayer Online…
MMOG = … Game
MUD = Multiuser Domain

TBS = turn-based strategy

FPS is also frames per second.
