Video game style[edit]

Sometimes used to describe a style of video game requiring quick responses, e.g. game-streaming site Twitch.tv launched in 2011. Here's an older citation from a magazine interview:

  • 1985, Graeme Kidd, Great Scott! (in Crash issue 15)
    The ‘arcade adventure’ concept is catching on fast, with a number of software houses bringing out arcade action adventure games, including the Wally series from Mikro-Gen and the soon-to-be-launched Chuckie Egg II. How does the founding father of micro adventuring view this development? ‘They’re Twitch Games,’ he grinned, ‘arcade games. An adventure game is one where you use your mind; if you can type, you can play an adventure. If you require anything other than that, you’ve got a twitch game — an arcade game — where your skill of movement is more important than your thinking. []
