Powergaming is a practice often mistaken for godmodeing, though there are several significant differences. The key difference between the two is the player's attitude towards established rules; while a godmoder tends to break rules, acting in ways that are not possible for his/her character,a powergamer manipulates the rules to his/her advantage, essentially taking every possible advantage without ever actually committing any violations.
