Video Game Lost History

I’m noticing a lot more activity lately in regards to video game history preservation. Lots of old stuff that would otherwise have been lost to time is being rescued, examined, and preserved. Two big ones just very recently I have taken notice of.

Early protoptype copy of Duck Tales for NES played on stream.

Game that would have been the equivalent of MLB Jam discovered.
