Think back to all the hours spent playing video games as a kid. Now imagine a world today where that game and its graphics no longer exist – gone, erased, deleted forever. Game Over.
“According to the Library of Congress, 75% of all films made before 1929 are gone forever. “It’s not that they’re hard to find, they just don’t exist anymore. I find that terrifying,” says Frank Cifaldi, who is intent on saving another disappearing art form through The Video Game History Foundation.”
Can The Video Game History Foundation’s open-sourcing save this important part of history? We hope so.
In the meantime, let’s take a moment to reflect on history. What was your favorite video game?
