Hardcore Parkour

Am I the only person sick of seeing ''parkour'' being thrown around any time a custom map or a game has anything involving jumping and possibly dying?  That's not parkour, that's platforming.  Last I checked there were only a few games that actually involved parkour.  There's one MMO parkour game that I know of called FreeJack, and another single-player story based game called Mirror's Edge.  I've only played those two, so I'm not sure about others, but it's fucking annoying to hear people call platforming parkour.  Parkour is getting from A to B as quickly as you can without wasting energy.  Platforming is jumping between platforms.  Period.  Fuck.  You.
