look up any word, like wyd:
 
26.
An option in vertical shooters released for consoles (i.e. Ikaruga, DoDonPachi) in which the screen is rotated 90 degrees, so as to cover the entire screen. To be used correctly, the TV most be rotated 90 degrees counterclockwise.

This is the opposite of "yoko" mode, in which the gameplay screen is shrunk so that it fits a TV oriented normally. This results in two bars on the sides of the screen taking up the unoccupied areas. Yoko mode makes the screen very hard to see, and is generally not recommended for vertical shooters.
I played DoDonPachi in Tate mode and it is great. I can see everything clearly.
