Live-Action Gaming (or LAGging) is the act of playing or running a 'Live-Action Game'. This is a form of game where the participants physically act out all of their characters' actions. Unlike LARPs, which were inspired by role-playing games and genre fiction, live action gaming traces it's root to sports and computer games.

To make a comparison to computer games, LARPing is the live-action form of a computer RPG like "World of Warcraft" while LAGging is the live-action form of a videogame like "Doom" or "Quake".
"I prefer Live-Action Gaming to LARPing. I don't want to spend all that time figuring how to best spend my experience points."
