I was playing a game of my mac and it froze.
I couldn't remember how to force quit (I've only been a mac user for a few months) so I hit command and a few different keys... nothing happened (or so I thought) so I restarted the computer.
now everything is huge on my screen.
how would one go about fixing this?

There are one of two possible issues:

1. Your resolution has changed. Go to System Preferences > Displays. Each Mac model has a different native resolution. Which model do you have?
2. Zoom has been enabled and you've zoomed in. Go to System Preferences > Universal Access and turn zoom off.

Let's see if it is the resolution then. Check to make sure, using step one, that your resolution is 1280x800 (13"), 1440x900 (15") or 1920x1200 (17").

If that's not it, head over to System Preferences > Trackpad and make sure "Zoom while holding" is unchecked.
