3) When addressing the multiple type of data for the same application, you didn't talk about using a combination of data storage, each having its task. But I take it I'll have to consider the role of each kind of data seperatly. 4) I heard there is other type of data storage aside from flat file, and relational database, I would like to know about them too, as pointed in the OP. Now, I will edit the OP accordingly, to reflect what I said in those comments.

comment How to choose how to store data?
+1 Great answer, and I already learn a lot from it. That's why I hate to do that, but there is a few point which were not properly addressed. and that is most probably because I couldn't express them adequately enough. 1)Minor point, but when I was talking about platform, I was in fact talking about development platform. But you addressed this point anyway. 2) By portability, I meant re-usability, but your point on portability was in fact a point I hadn't considered, but it revealed itself quite relevant.

@notabene: Thanks I appreciate, though I would have like to hear from the guy who gave me -1, after all I want to contribute in a positive way.

@notabene: For example, I'm sure there is scenario where using an external data storage is not used, but instead data would be stored in the "code".

Otherwise, I would like to know what should I change to make clear it is another question.

@notabene: I knew about this thread, and somehow thought the scope of my question was different as this one. The was searching an answer for a component-based game (whatever it is, but I take there are other kind of game out there), and had already reduced the choice in a way, and nearly each answer handled one kind of technology. On the other hand I'm asking for a basic methodology on how to choose, and I would like to have more of a comparison. Now, if the community still think of it as a duplicate, I will consider deleting this question and try to get my answer on the other thread.

I would like to know, why I get a down-vote? Is my question too broad? off-topic? Is there a need for additional information?
