National Media Museum/National Video Game Archive (UK)

The National Videogame Archive (NVA) is a joint UK project between the National Media Museum and Nottingham Trent University, which aims to celebrate the culture and history of videogames for researchers, developers, game fans and the public.

Announced in September 2008, the Archive is working to preserve, analyze and display the products of the global videogame industry by placing games in their historical, social, political and cultural contexts. At the heart of the National Videogame Archive is the determination to document the full life of games, from prototypes and early sketches, through box-art, advertising and media coverage, to mods, fanart and community activities.
