Playing with the Dead: Let’s Plays and Emulations as Method for Video Game Preservation

Monday, Nov 18 | 5:00 PM

Stage #4

ACADEMIA

Description

The rapid degradation of digital material and the fact that there are currently no established, standardized methods and best practices for the preservation of such material creates a significant challenge for the preservation of the cultural heritage of video games. As such, heritage institutions must turn to unorthodox paratextual material in order to capture the aura of a game. This presentation will propose a methodology for the preservation of video games and emphasize the importance of including fan-produced materials, such as let’s plays and mods, when preserving this medium.
