"players assume the roles of characters in a fictional setting"
Predicting your opponents strategies based on what they have done before.
Also, gathering data or other things outside of the normal means of getting them. (Meta-data)
An example of Power-Gaming would be playing through ACB (Assassins Creed Brotherhood) and just doing the main story missions and then thinking that you have beat the entire game.
It is when you make your RP character act out of his personality.
IC (IN CHARACTER)
Silent, Quick, Agile, and Deadly
I can hear their footsteps behind me. Making no attempt at stealth, I sprint and leap for the next rooftop. I sail through the air and immediately realize that I had seriously miscalculated the distance of the gap. I hit the edge of the roof, hard. My hands scramble for purchase against the slick shingles. After one last desperate grab at the roof I fall; and barely manage to catch myself on a balcony one floor below. I sway; hanging onto the outside of the railing. *THUNK* An arrow lands just to right of my head. My pursuers have caught up, and were now taking potshots at me with their crossbows. Looking around for a way out, I spy a bale of hay below me. My years of training have prepared me for this. I say a quick prayer, and drop.

Backstory [2 paragraphs]:
Nicolo Simoneti grew up on the streets of the 14th century city of Venice. At the age of 6, both of Nicolo's parents died of tuberculosis. After being kick out of the house by the bank who now owned it, Nicolo wandered the streets. He relied on the donations of average citizen. During the first winter, Nicolo was inducted into a local thieves guild. He had just turned 7 years old. In the guild, Nicolo and the other children were trained in the art of stealth. They would go out into the city and hide while the instructors searched for them. Being found was followed by a severe beating. Lucky, Nicolo had a natural talent for staying out of sight. It was rumored that one time, Nicolo had just stood outside of the guild during one of the hide and seek games, and he was not caught. Needless to say, stealth came very easily to Nicolo.
As Nicolo grew older he became tired of the thieves guild. He wanted to go out and explore. So, at age 17, Nicolo set off to Rome. After living in Rome for a few weeks, Nicolo was caught pick pocketing by the guards, and was about to be killed. Luckily for Nicolo, an assassin was passing by and freed him. Nicolo then offered to join the Assassins and was accepted. Now, at 23 years of age, Nicolo is one of Rome's top assassins. He travels all over the globe, fulfilling his contracts.

when I was 10 I saw someone in a white and red robe. I walked up to him and asked who he was. He said he was Ezio. I thought i had herd of that name before so I asked around and I found out that he was a wanted man. I also found out that he was an assassin. I wanted to know more about him and the ways of the assassins so I could meet him again and help him. When trying to find out how to become an assassin I found out more about ezio and how his family and the Templars were always in a fight for the Apple Of Eden.
