The results of our semantic analysis are shown below using the website's language.

They are the main concepts covered by gamefaqs.net.

Each concept has a confidence score. The higher it is, the more important the topic is relative to the page.

Topics
GameFAQs Confidence: 92% Arrow up

GameFAQs is a website that hosts FAQs and walkthroughs for video games.

It was created in November 1995 by Jeff Veasey and was bought by CNET Networks in May 2003.

It is currently owned by CBS Interactive.

The site has a database of video game information, cheat codes, reviews, game saves, box art images and screenshots, almost all of which is submitted by volunteer contributors.

The systems covered include the 8-bit Atari platform through modern consoles, as well as computer games and mobile games.

Submissions made to the site are reviewed by the site's current editor, Allen "SBAllen" Tyner.

Cheating in video games Confidence: 82% Arrow up

Cheating in video games involves a video game player using non-standard methods to create an advantage or disadvantage beyond normal gameplay, in order to make the game easier or harder.

Cheats may be activated from within the game itself (a cheat code implemented by the original game developers), or created by third-party software (a game trainer) or hardware (a cheat cartridge).

They can also be realized by exploiting software bugs; this may or may not be considered cheating based on whether the bug is considered common knowledge.

Software bugs are very often considered software features and as long as they are common knowledge, it is questionable whether it is cheating.

Video game Confidence: 80% Arrow up

A video game is an electronic game that involves interaction with a user interface to generate visual feedback on a video device such as a TV screen or computer monitor.

The word video in video game traditionally referred to a raster display device, but as of the 2000s, it implies any type of display device that can produce two- or three-dimensional images.

Some theorists categorize video games as an art form, but this designation is controversial.

Strategy guide Confidence: 75% Arrow up

Strategy guides are instruction books that contain hints or complete solutions to specific video games.

The line between strategy guides and walkthroughs is somewhat blurred, with the former often containing or being written around the latter.

Strategy guides are often published in print, both in book form and also as articles within video game magazines.

In cases of exceptionally popular game titles, guides may be sold through more mainstream publication channels, such as bookstores or even newsstands.

Some publishers also sell E-Book versions on their websites.

FAQ Confidence: 74% Arrow up

Frequently asked questions (FAQ) or Questions and Answers (Q&A), are listed questions and answers, all supposed to be commonly asked in some context, and pertaining to a particular topic.

The format is commonly used on email mailing lists and other online forums, where certain common questions tend to recur.
