Playing along and playing for on Twitch
Rainforest Scully-Blaker - Jason Begy - Mia Consalvo - Sarah Christina Ganzon
eBook Edition: 2017

This paper is an analysis of individuals who livestream game play on Twitch. Two core concepts- ‘playing along’ and ‘playing for’–are put forth as two poles to a continuum to better discuss tandem play in the context of livestreaming. From an analysis of participants’ exit interviews and observations of larger Twitch streams, it is shown that livestreaming is a form of tandem play, but only to a point. As audiences grow, ‘playing along’ becomes difficult for streamers. The ‘ceiling’ of tandem play is reached when a streamer is so focused on entertaining the largest number of people possible that they are no longer playing along with their spectators, but only playing for them.
