Metagames, paragames and orthogames

Marcus Carter, Martin Gibbs, Mitchell Harrop
2012 Proceedings of the International Conference on the Foundations of Digital Games - FDG '12  
This wide use has lead to a conceptual overload of the term, mitigating its potential use for game studies.  ...  We apply this new vocabulary to a variety of play practices in EVE Online to illustrate its strength for analysing and defining play practices.  ...  We then turned to a more systematic process, searching for the term metagame (and variations thereof; metagaming, meta-game etc) on several academic data base searches, Google, specific games websites  ...
