As you migh think, Games' data are hardly managed by databases As far as I know, games often relie on basic or dedicated managments for loading texture data, reading confuration files, saving games...It is indeed very common for a game team to define its own ressources format (and consequently dedicated managments as well).

Actually there is an exception to this rule. Advanced chess games use databases to look up board positions and see how they were played in the past.

You are quite righ Alastair. But, I doubt that chess video games use ORACLE, MYSQL or ACCESS (maybe except for DEEP BLUE and DEEPER BLUE !). As far as I know, chess programs use dedicated formats (and their own routines as well) to store games yet I have heard about a standard record chess games format called PNG (or something like).
