I’m sure there are a lot of people who have never heard of a game preservation advocate. They are a little like the average Joe out there, who just wants to know what’s going on with their favorite game. I know you’ve been there, too! If you haven’t heard of Chief, I think it’s safe to say you are in a great position to be one of them.
Chief is the best game preservation advocate out there, and I think we should all be like him. In the last few weeks, Chief has been working tirelessly to get the attention of the major publishers in the gaming industry, most especially Sony.
They have all the power that I can possibly imagine, and if they don’t like their games, they don’t get to play them. Chief is one of the few people on the internet who is actually concerned about the quality of games. He regularly blogs about his opinions, and he is absolutely correct. If you don’t want to hear his opinions and want to see him go out of his way to help, you can always just do a Google search for the words “game preservation advocate”.
The other day I Googled game preservation advocate, and I was immediately bombarded with a ton of sites like this one. Chief is an absolute hero, and if you want to know more, just do a Google search for game preservation advocate.
There are a million different things you can do to save your games as well as their designers. It’s a shame that there aren’t more people doing what he is doing because there is a lot of good stuff that’s out there, but there are also some really shitty stuff all over the place. We can all learn from each other.
One of the things you can do to save your games is to donate to your favorite games preservation organization. A lot of these are charities that are very effective, but others also have websites and Facebook pages that you can donate to. The problem is that this is a very broad term. It doesn’t really include all the sites that do the things you need to do. There are a lot of charities that are dedicated to game preservation, but other websites and Facebook pages are also relevant.
There are a few games preservation charities out there that you can donate to that are very much related to digital preservation and not just games preservation. There is a group in the UK that seeks to preserve games from people who have grown angry with them. These are also very broad terms to include.
The term “digital preservation” is sort of a misnomer anyway. It’s really talking about the preservation of all kinds of things. Some of these things are music, books, and movies, but some of them are not. The reason it is important to have a big umbrella term is that the “digital preservation” charities are not the same as the “game preservation” charities. There are a lot of people who do not enjoy gaming and do not want games to disappear.
The game preservation charities include digital art organizations, digital archives, game preservation societies, and the like. Some of these organizations can deal with the game preservation directly, while others seek to preserve the game as a resource. For example, the digital archives are trying to preserve the source games of games, which are being digitized by a larger group.
In general, I don’t see the point of game preservation because they are just so fragmented. When I was a kid I always had a big stack of cartridges on my desk. Even though I was young I still had a lot to look forward to, but I didn’t have the time or energy to look at every single cartridge. I’m sure that if you are looking to preserve something, you can find a lot of different ways in which you can do it.
