You Don't Own Your Games Any More | Spot On

With the news from a study conducted by the Video Game History Foundation revealing that a whopping 87% of classic games are no longer available, Tam and Lucy dive into why video game preservation is so important.

This week, the Video Game History Foundation released a study that contained some truly shocking statistics about the availability of classic games. With video games being delisted, TV shows and movies being wiped from streaming services, and even games that come on a disc requiring you to download some files before you can play, the state of preservation is bleak. Tam and Lucy discuss why it's so important, what the ESA's role has been, and what you can do to help.

Spot On is a weekly news show airing Fridays in which GameSpot's managing editor Tamoor Hussain and senior producer Lucy James talk about the latest news in games. Given the highly dynamic and never-ending news cycle of the massive video game industry, there's always something to talk about but, unlike most other news shows, Spot On will dive deep into a single topic as opposed to recapping all the news. Spot On airs each Friday.

Check out the study here:
