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

  • $\begingroup$ 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! $\endgroup$

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

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?
