Playstyles in Tetris: Beyond Player Skill, Score, and Competition

Abstract

In this study, we looked at playstyles in Tetris in order to explore how players construct meaning in abstract video games. To do this, we looked at playstyles that go beyond metrics related to player skill, score and competition. Indeed, non-expert playstyle are often neglected in playstyle studies, but construction of meaning can also occur in noncompetitive playstyles. We logged the play of 31 Tetris players and used Principal Component Analysis to model their playstyles. In doing so, we discovered 4 distinct playstyles that we present in this paper.
