What game do you want to backup? I ask as the steps can vary depending on the game.

Ok. You would need to use a program designed for backing up games like Alcohol 120%/Alcohol 52%. You can download Alcohol 52% Free edition at http://www.free-downloads.net/.....ee_Edition (Note: You need to unselect an Internet Explorer toolbar add-on in the setup if you don't want it)
Programs like that can backup many copy protected games.
Though I haven't played the ones you listed so I don't know if those will work. Sometimes you need special ways or programs for different copy protections.

For DVDs you want something like DVDFab HD Decrypter that can get around the DVD Copy Protection.
As for playing games/dvd you can mount the backup image to a Virtual CD/DVD drive and play it. Alcohol can also make a Virtual CD/DVD drive.

Oh, I was thinking PC games. I'm not sure about backing up games for consoles like the xbox 360.
