The ending "-게" is one of formal speech styles which is called "하게 style" , and the ending "-게" is usually used in imperative sentences. 하게 = do it. / 먹게 = eat it. / 보게 = see it. Extra Information, 하십시오 (하십이오 style) ☞ 하게 (하게 style) ☞ 해라 (해라 style) ☞ 해요 (해요 style) ☞ 해 (해 style) \^o^/

I have no idea which 게-ending words you're asking since you aren't giving us the context but the common usage of the words are like this: A : (walking to the kitchen) B : 뭐 하게? What are you going to do? A : 밥 하게. I'm going to cook rice. A : (continues to talk rubbish) B : 조용히 좀 해 봐, 나 밥 좀 먹게. Please be quiet, so I can eat. A : (standing in front of the TV) B : 비켜 봐, TV 좀 보게. Move over, so I can watch TV. -게 as an imperative is quite old-fashioned, used by middle-aged people.
