Requirements documents can have many different names and purposes; it really depends on what your organization is using and how it defines them. In some organizations, the "business requirements" are what the client wants to see in the application (a list of desired features, etc.) and the "functional specifications" document is what lists the system/software requirements that have been derived from the business requirements. Check with your project team, though, and see how the project is documenting and using the requirements.

SRS is a doc which contains functional and non-functional requiremennts.

Just read that above link regarding BRD, you will get to know the difference.

Of course you can.

While some documents will work better than others, virtually any document can be used as input to your test cases. If your "Game Description Document" is very thorough, you can probably find lots of explicit and implicit requirements in there. If it's not very thorough, you can probably still find "features" that should be covered by your tests.

You may not want to rely solely on any one document, but whatever is available can provide at least some value.

This might help, too:

Business Requirement documents have information about what all information an end user or business user wants to see on the application and how he would like to make maximum and optimum use of it.

SRS Functional Spec have information about the features and functionalities should be implemented to achieve the business requirement by end/business users with use of any tool.

E.g. end user wants to see at a glance information for all geographic areas where revenue generated is less than certain threshold value. So this is the business requirement. How this can be achieved is probably to have a graphical representation say a pie chart to display same. This is functional requirement.

So for QA, both information become important in order to come up with test cases. And all the available documents should be referred to prepare good set of test cases

SRS is the system requirements specification provided the
client giving the scope of the system and FS carries out
the functional specification of the system describing each
and every function by the system.
