// System.out.println(words.length); // length of array

Random rand = new Random();

System.out.println(randInd);

String rWord = words[randInd];
System.out.println(rWord); // random word generated
int length = rWord.length();

System.out.println("The word has "+length+ " letters");

char [] rWordAr = rWord.toCharArray(); //storing rand word in char array

for (int i=0; i<rWordAr.length;i++) {

rWordChAr.add(rWordAr); //adding letters to Character arraylist

}
System.out.println(rWordChAr);

}

void game() {

// for (char s : rWordChAr) {
// System.out.println(s);
// }

for (Character c : rWordChAr) { //iterate through the arraylist

if (user.equals(c)) {
System.out.print(user);
gChar.add(user);

} else {
System.out.print("_");
}


}
System.out.println();

}


}

check the character in gChar and print it

// in game()
for (Character c: rWordChAr) {
if (gChar.contains(c) ) {
System.out.print(c);
continue;
}
...
