One of the common gaming slang you often see. Its acronym stands for “good game”. The term is typically used at the end battle in a competitive online multiplayer game indicating the match was truly good, fairly played, a close match, or one team got slaughtered. GG is either a gesture of good sportsmanship or to acknowledge one’s own defeat or the opponent’s skills are superior.

GG is also used outside the context of gaming and used as a sarcastic remark to accounts of foolish acts or self-defeating behaviors.

Ex. John: “My mom banned me from playing games in the middle of the night.”
Tony: “GG mate”
