What does GGL stand for in online gaming?

Good game loser

GGL stands for "good game loser," which is commonly used in online games, such as Call of Duty, Starcraft, and chess. It is often typed at the end of a match to make fun of the other player who lost.

GGL (usually typed "ggl") is a less classy version of GG. It is an easy way for the victor to pour salt in the wound of the losing participant.

The acronym is considered petty by most gamers, so you should avoid using it unless you want to be considered a jerk. However, some users may send it to other gamers they are friends with as a playful jab.


GGL, hopefully next time I won't beat you so easily!
