Gauntlet was originally an arcade game made in the early 80's. It was one of the first "top-down" view role playing games, in which you could control one of four types of player classes. The objective of the game was to find keys and kill enemies and proceed to new rooms. Has seen many incarnations on various systems over time.

Medieval hand protection. Two variations were finger gauntlets, comprised of steel over the top of the hand and individual, articulated plates of steel over the fingers to give movement for sword and Bill. The other variation were Mitts, same steel over the hand, but just one plate or slightly curved steel over the fingers, instead of the articulation. Gloves were worn underneath the metal, for grip on the weapons and general protection.Could be plain, or highly decorated, depending on the period and the fashions of the time.
The soldier slipped his hands into his gauntlets.
