One of my MA students, Paul Gooding, is just finishing up his dissertation on issues surrounding the archiving of computer games. Interesting topic - he points me to a section on the guardian technology web blog which has an interesting summation and links to the state of play in the US, and the lack of any co-ordinated effort in the UK. Something to think about:
The US Library of Congress sets out to preserve games. At the same time, the UK government is blasted by EIDOS for its lack of support.
