A walkthrough for a particular video-game or specific section of a particular video-game. Because of the long amount of time that it has been used in this fashion (its originations still lying in ‘Frequently Asked Questions’), it is now becoming appropiate to spell it in the lowercase and pronounce it(when used in this way) as ‘fack’(rather than ‘eff-ay-kyoo’). Just like the word (no longer an acronym in the truest sense) ‘milf’ doesn’t have to be spelled-out ‘MILF’ in all-capital letters--even though when it was still a new word it was.
Note that an ‘F.A.Q.’ as used in the traditional sense when pertaining to a list of ‘frequently-asked question’ or a variant of the like can be referred-to as simply ‘Q&As’ to help elminate the now-present small bit of ambiguity regarding the two kinds of ‘FAQs’\‘faqs’. Note also that you can be reading *a* faq (such as one for a videogame), but checking over *an* FAQ (such as a list of questions if you are confused about something), due to the difference in pronounciation between the two.
Plural form: faqs.
The top two websites for video-game faqs on my list are GameFAQs.com and IGN.com, with Neoseeker following closely behind.
