look up any word, like plopping:
 
1.
powergaming, consists in achieving end game results (getting the highest and most favorable output possible) , ignoring everything else that constitutes the game as a whole. Another way to put it in words, would be taking shortcuts in the game in a counter-intuitive way. This practice is common in MMORPGs.

example: a player in an mmorpg doing powergaming would be joining a top ranked guild at starter level with high privileges, ignores the game storyline, skips all quests given except the ones needed to reach end game, ignores advanced tutorials, and gets power leveled to cap with the best gear possible, which would give him or her bragging rights over the rest of the average players.
