Metagaming is a broad term usually used to define any strategy, action or method used in a game which transcends a prescribed ruleset, uses external factors to affect the game, or goes beyond the supposed limits or environment set by the game. Another definition refers to the game universe outside of the game itself.
In simple terms, using out-of-game information, or resources, to affect one's in-game decisions.

That's called strategy.

Must be the kiddies who need to use a term like 'metagame' to feel better about themselves when they could just use the word strategy.

So we should replace words that have no need to be replaced in the name of a larger vocabulary.

Wow, you are a genius.

How dumb.

You must have failed high school English. Here lets let you brush up. Synonyms are different words that have very similar meanings, yet are used in different context. People choose to use the word "metagame" instead of "strategy" for a reason. You can be sure as hell that they know what both words mean and are making a conscious decision to use the former. If you would like to learn more about Synonyms or other grammatical things I suggest you pay more attention in school, or go back.

Here is the wiki article on Synonyms (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synonym). Please read it before you post again.
