Interlinking dataset of the video game databases Mobygames and MediaArt Database

Mühleder, Peter; Rämisch, Florian; Hoffmann, Tracy

The goal of the DFG (German Research Foundation) funded project diggr (Databased Infrastructure for Global Games Culture Research) is the integration of information from various heterogeneous, fragmentary online resources of the video game domain with the aim of creating robust research datasets.

This dataset provides automatically generated links between the video game databases Mobygames (http://www.mobygames.com) and Media Art DB (https://mediaarts-db.bunka.go.jp/gm/) and additional metadata for each game entry.

A full description of the dataset is provided in Dataset Description.md.

After the renewal of the identifier structure by the Media Art Database (12/2019) the identifiers in the dataset are deprecated. We now provide mapping file between the old and new identifers.
