 Abstract
This paper made a comparative study on domestic and international game archives that preserve and study the history of games. Based on that, it suggests the structure to classify and build a database to establish a history museum of games. The objective to gather and preserve history of games is mainly in order to build a baseline for ludology studies, but not solely for that reason. This study proposes the series of procedures of gathering, preserving, classifying, displaying and referencing digital games according to the academic field of Media Archaeology.
