FFXI (game released on May 16, 2002):
"FFXI has an almost entirely player-based economy with a heavy reliance on the Auction Houses in each of the major cities of Vana'diel. Usually monsters in FFXI do not drop gil. Various items used in crafting may drop off the monsters that are defeated. Players who do not require the item may sell it to other players via the Auction House. The Auction House is also the primary method of obtaining weapons, magic scrolls and other materials."

I only know of this one personally. I'm not sure if there is any other game that uses this exact term (Auction House).

Everquest had an auction house, Everquest 2 has 2 auction houses, Fung Wan Online and several Asian MMOGs also featured auction house systems.

In EQ2 they have a different name (brokers) although the functionality is quite similar.

Someone replied to a post of mine with "QFT." I have no idea what it means.

I didn't see grind in there. I know nobody likes to do it, but it is a gamer word.

Quote:
FPS First Person Shooter game, a genre in which the player interacts with a realistic 3D environment from the first-person view of a person holding a weapon. Gameplay features real-time combat simulation and "twitch" reactions, as opposed to statistical or turn-based play.
It could also mean "Frame Per Second"

I don't think I saw it in the glossary.

You can find the definition of "MUD" twice in the glossary...

One time between "MMORPG" and "Mule":
Quote:
MUD acronym for Multi-User Dungeon. Although the first multiplayer videogame was probably Pong, the first fantasy-themed roleplaying was most likely a MUD. The first MUD was created by Bartle and Trubshaw at the University of Essex in 1978, and featured a world for multiple fantasy-themed players to explore.
And a second time between "MT" and "Nuke":
Quote:
MUD abbreviation for "multi user dungeon," an type of multiplayer text adventure game from which MMORPGs evolved.
Oh and "MT" should be moved since it doesn't seem placed in the right order with the other words starting with the letter "M".

The definition of "Path" isn't aligned like the other definitions.
