Videogame Website Archive Project

“As the reach and impact of the videogames world continues to grow, it’s vital that we at least preserve the essence of the cultural and historical impact of the sector.”

– Paul Wheatley, Digital Preservation Manager, The British Library

 The British Library and the National Videogame Archive are working together to preserve gaming culture by creating an archive of videogame websites, and need your help! They are seeking suggestions of websites, online games, forums, enthusiast sites, advertising, FAQs and walkthroughs, as well as emulation software and research and education resources, from game designers, players, developers, publishers, enthusiasts, and memory institutions around the world.

 You can read more about the project here. To make your own nomination, fill out the form at webarchive.org.uk/ukwa/info/nominate to explain why you feel a particular site should be included!
