Definition - What does Gameplay mean?

Gameplay is a term used to define the way players interact with a certain video or computer game. It is further characterized as the way the game is played, including the rules, the plot, the objectives and how to conquer them, as well as a player's overall experience. As video games gained popularity in the 1980s, the term gameplay became more popular as well. Its continuing popularity has expanded its use to include other types of games as well.

Techopedia explains Gameplay

The player’s experience is one of the most important factors in gameplay and helps to determine the game's success. Playability is a set of factors that measure the ease or comfort and fun in playing a specific game. Gameplay includes the type of game - such as first person shooters, platformers and role-playing games - and how the game follows or deviates from the set gameplay formulas in each genre. Gameplay features might include things the player can do with the character, like shooting, jumping, swimming, crafting items, using magic and even how the game handles player death.

There are various methods that can measure game playability to help improve the game. These include:

  • Learning
  • Immersion
  • Emotion
  • Satisfaction
  • Efficiency
  • Motivation
  • Socialization
