The game industry has been seeing rapid change brought on by the competitive environment globally. As a result, game design skill is being magnified as a key to success. Because of lack of game design skills, Korean game market is in crisis recently. The game analysis is necessary to enhance game design skills. However, criteria and definition of game analysis is not clear and it is difficult to use for game development. This paper will suggest H-G model which has two factors that are 'human role' and 'the scope of game analysis'. This model segments 9 types of game analysis method. This study finds the limitation of leading researches and tries to improve it mapping the major leading researches to H-G model. This paper would help to make the game analysis be integrated and systemic research as regards 9 types of H-G model.
