Abstract: Although play is often viewed as a buffer against failure, our nascent work in this paper argues that play is teeming with emotional and epistemic complexity. Based on the epistemic cognition, emotion, and problem-solving literature, we are developing a coding scheme for exploring how people learn in puzzle video games. Preliminary findings revealed a significant negative relationship between self-reported confidence and time spent on a level (r = -.52, p < .001). In addition, players' problem-solving moves showed different co-occurring patterns with epistemic stance and emotional valence. The study's initial results demonstrate its potential for enhancing understanding of what it means to learn from playing video games by conducting a fine-grained process analysis and bridging literatures.
