In the latest edition of the famous American TV show Jeopardy , which is analogous to ” Own Game “, the participants were asked an unusual question. They were asked to name a slang word applied to people who may not be what they seem – especially if they can be traitors in Among Us . And the answer was given immediately.
In fairness, the word sus, short for suspect, “suspected”, appeared in Britain a hundred years ago, and is still used in Australia. But it was difficult to call it widely used before the explosive popularity of Among Us.
The game, which its creators were already planning to close due to low demand, “thanks” to the pandemic and a number of streamers, soared to the heights of popularity.
A number of its aspects and signs quickly seeped into memes and popular culture. And the widespread use of slang words, among other things, is another confirmation that its status can be defined as a cult one.
