Deathmatch

Quick Definition

A deathmatch is a multiplayer arena based game of combat where everyone is trying to kill everyone else's characters. This may sound horrific, but it's treated much like paint ball or any other team sport.

Deathmatches are usually played using First Person Shooter games, such as Doom or Quake.
