1. A term used by fans of a TV show/work of fiction to describe an attempt by the writers/creator(s) to twist the narrative on its head by introducing something so completely unexpected that it puts a completely new spin on things and forces the viewer to assess thier opinion or perception of where said fiction/show is ultimately headed.
The most effective gamechangers are those which cannot be predicted using the clues introduced to the narrative so far, and leave the audience completely and utterly confused.
A gamechanger can, in the minds of some fans stray extremely close to Jumping the Shark, however a gamechanger is often seen as a positive if it enhances the quality or intrigue in a work of fiction.
Words also commonly associated with a gamechanger when they are shown, are WTF and OMG and Holy Shit.
"Dude did you see that gamechanger moment on LOST last night? I totally didn't click that was a flash-forward all along, I mean, I thought they'd NEVER get off that crazy island"
"That was SUCH a gamechanger when Neo woke up in the real world man, didn't see that coming. That was fucking awesome"
"I'm fucking sick and tired of Lost nerds on the forums telling me that there's going to be a gamechanger in next week's episode"
