I thought this might be good for some of our gamers out there. I have also seen the majority of these words from playing video games in Chinese and from signing up to websites. On a side note, I absolutely love the word 魅力. I learned it while playing Final Fantasy XI Online in Japanese. The character 魅 is very aesthetically pleasing and together with 力 it completes my little OCD heart. 🙂
