GG

Meaning 1 Good game
Definition

GG is commonly used in online gaming, such as chess or Starcraft to say "good game." It is often typed at the end of a match to congratulate the other player.

GG (usually typed "gg") is considered a respectful way to end a match rather than simply surrendering. In some cases, "gg wp" (good game, well played) might be used to show extra respect to the opponent.

In pro leagues, players often type gg and then immediately surrender. However, in lower leagues, the winning opponent is often given a chance to type "gg" in response. Typing "gg" and then still trying to win the game is considered bad eSports etiquette.

Example
"GG, do u wanna play again?"
