What does Gommemode mean?
Gommemode (pronounced ‘Gommemoud’) is a variation of the term Godmode. This means an insurmountable power. Godmode is a cheat in many games that provides invulnerability and one-hit defeat of enemies. In their game, the players become a god that nothing can defeat.
In multiplayer titles, godmode is a form of cheating. If you are playing as a single player, the Godmode can even promise additional fun. This is especially the case when playful freedom and the joy of experimentation are at the center of the gaming experience.
Where does the term Gommemode come from?
The Gommemode has become popular thanks to the YouTube star GommeHD of the same name and his videos. On its Minecraft server, GommeHD can equip its character with special abilities. If he uses this opportunity, he is in Gomme mode.
GommeHD doesn’t just use its capabilities to monitor the server. His community also likes to take on the challenge of defeating him in the Gommemode. Of course, this only works if we work together.
The popularity of the Gommemode goes back a long time. As early as 2015, the term could be heard in the “Gomme Hymne” by Lukas the rapper.
Gommemode owes its nomination for the youth word of the year 2022 not only to the GommeHD community. The subreddit r/okbrudimongo also seems to have played a crucial role in Gommemode’s nomination.
