With only the beginning, I am an abbreviation of the whole word (Commonly found in games)

In the middle, I can be considered as an abbreviation of a school subject

While with the ending, I may be used as a very rude abbreviation

My Whole is a noun

Additional Hint :

The word consists of just 8 letters

  • Well, I find all Riley Riddles interesting. It shows off interesting properties about whatever word the answer is. In fact, I tend to be curious most of the time, so I can find anything interesting. You have made heaps of Riley Riddles, and thus far, I have not grown bored yet, hahah! – user477343 Aug 20 at 5:24

Are you

STRENGTH?

With only the beginning, I am an abbreviation of the whole word (Commonly found in games)

Strength is often shortened to STR in RPGs

In the middle, I can be considered as an abbreviation of a school subject

ENG is short for English

While with the ending, I may be used as a very rude abbreviation

GTH, as in "Go to hell!" (Thanks @mrdeadsven!)

My Whole is a noun

'Strength' is a noun

  • Correct Answer! Only the ending part is wrong (Figure it out and I will give the checkmark) :) – Kevin L Aug 20 at 11:51

    Thanks @mrdeadsven! Not sure how I came up with my guess...yours actually uses all the letters. =) – hagfy Aug 20 at 12:00
  • Congrats! All correct. Clearly you are a master puzzle solver :) @hagfy – Kevin L Aug 20 at 12:03

First thing that came to my mind was

DUNGEONS

With only the beginning, I am an abbreviation of the whole word

If I go back to my Dungeons & Dragons (D&D) times D was abbreviation of Dungeons

Commonly found in some games

Lots of games have dungeons

In the middle, I can be considered as an abbreviation of a school subject

GEO from geography

While with the ending, I may be used as a very rude abbreviation

not sure was thinking of NS for No Shit?

  • +1 but incorrect. All the parts were wrong – Kevin L Aug 20 at 11:21
  • @KevinL unfortunate but I still had my fun thinking over this nice riddle :p, hopefully someone else has a better clue on it. – mrdeadsven Aug 20 at 11:52
