This is a special group of Styles of Play that capture how a child develops their play of a game. Unlike other Styles of Play, these relate to a specific scenario and context rather than being dictated by the game itself.
These relate games that focus on the competitive side of video games. Whether that's esports titles, or simply games that are great for families to compete against each other, they are all player versus player experiences.
These relate to games that are played cooperatively. Where one player aims to work with another human player in the game.
These relate to games that tell stories in different ways. Like novels, picture books, movies and theatre, video games can create narratives. However, they do this in new and unexpected ways. They uncover some different styles of storytelling in video games.
These relate to games that work with specific peripherals, controller and equipment that enable people to play with each other in different ways.
These Styles of Play define different ways that games sequence of turns. This describes how play is ordered and how players organise themselves to play the game.
These Styles of Play describe how different teams of players and computer controlled characters can play together.
