game.


In VideoGames, a gimmick is a gameplay mode or element that is unique to that particular game, i.e. hasn't been done by anyone before. Sometimes it's an entirely new control scheme, other times it's something as simple as a minigame played for five seconds once in an eighty hour campaign. Gimmicks aren't always seen favourably, often being something that detracts, and only included in a failed attempt to stand out. The term Gimmicky controls is often seen in reviews, and it is almost always negativly used, to indicate that the game in question has poorly thought out or implemented controls that make playing trickier than it really needs to be.
