RTS = real-time strategy
FPS = first-person shooter
I''ve never heard of an AVG though.

Don't quote me, but I'd guess that AVG stands for Adventure Game.

"Bahwani"??? Are you sure you didn''t mishear "Bemani"? (This being the trademark for Konami''s set of music games.)

FPS also refers to Frames Per Second. Never heared of AVG (except the AVG virus scanner) but, taking a wild guess - Adventure Game?

WarZone - A 2D Action Wargame

What a guess! Shows you how much attention the gaming comunity pays to adventure games though - the fact that the AVG abreviation isn''t even known...

As far as i know, the term AVG (AdVenture Game) is used for defining "visual novels" games (lots of texts with images), as the bishoujo (non-adult & adult) japanese games or games like Hideo Kojima''s Snatcher.

I would have thought Adventure Game would be ADV Game or some such. So an "AVG Game" is an AdVenture Game Game?

If someone said "that is one AVG game!" that they meant "Average."
