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

Never heared of AVG (except the AVG virus scanner) but, taking a wild guess - Adventure Game?

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."

As best as I can tell, AVG means average, not so much as in it sucks, but as the games playability is based on your average score.

LIke a lot of sports games are "AVG" and the AI and such gets harder as you get better.

I am not sure the exact acronym, but that AFAIK is what it is.

AV Girls in Japan are like Page 3 girls in the UK (except do sex scenes, I think).

Its possible AVG means AV Games and are sex games or games with loads of nudity. Or AVGirl games. I never found out what AV means, though. It would be a crowning achievment of Engrish if it means AudioVisual Girls.

AcronymFinder.com suggests "Advanced Video Graphics Array", although one would think that this would be AVGA, but apparently AVG and AVGA mean the same thing. I've never heard of AVGA, but I suppose it was something that came after VGA (obviously), but got beaten by SVGA. Who knows... (Hmm... I guess that was the OP's question...)
