See also: realism
Generally this covers things like appropriate screenshake, hits stopping at things instead of passing through them like they were air, small forced movements (violent head movement from blow to the head for example in first-person game), and so forth. Usually things that make every single action carry some form of weight instead of going through as if you were punching air.
Environmental contactTools, weapons, etc. can touch the environment instead of acting as if they were simply 2D printouts on your HUD or passing through everything as if they were air.2008 / 201719 games
