There was a lot of discussion about how physical media will all one day be historical artifacts that will 100% be absolutely useless. While some anons saying "disc rot will eventually make all disc-based media useless", other anons defending cartridges as people knocked down those too saying the actual code within those games will eventually scramble themselves into being unplayable. So that begs the question, will eventually every piece of hardware, from the CRTs to all the original hardware, be 100% useless garbage fodder, or is there a way to utilize the original casings of the games/consoles/etc to have fresh parts within making them work? What will the hobby of retro video games look like 100 years from now, will all of these things we enjoy from the 80s and 90s be cast into the void of obscurity and loss?
>>2985 >My bet is SSD's filled with roms and isos. And when that SSD is gone, lost or damaged, where are you gonna get new rosm and isos? Online? They can get purged by that point. There's a necessity to preserve the original physical media for as long as possible to have continuous dumps of it.
>>2991 >where are you gonna get new rosm and isos? In newer SSD's, guess i should've said hard drives getting periodical drive health checks to replace them often. The best case would be the crystal storage but reading/booting that info is expensive. Roms can be stored in USBs but i guess the isos are more tricky, the entire library of the PS2 is already a huge chunk.
>>3005 this is all case by case scenario with random people archiving stuff, if something happens to even one dude an entire cluster can be lost

Losing the physical discs and disc art is painful.

good goyim
>>6477 Do people seriously not realize the danger of this? Are the masses that braindead?
>>6495 Brainwashing is a helluva drug. You can bet the kikes doing it, understand it's effect on the nuGoyim.

>>6495 Yes. It's easier and quicker to buy them digitally and the golems don't think their ((("benevolent" overlords))) would take away access to something they paid for.
>>6517 the fact that they can just change anything they want and you won't even know is more terrifying
>>6519 >can just change anything >can just change >can just >can
>>6516 >not keeping multiple, redundant copies on different media, + stored on your own servers in different datacenters around the world shiggy.

>>6522 That cute, but the end result will still be the same.
>>6523 No you (((can't))) >>6524 TKD? Agreed tbh.
>>6522 based
>>6522 Wait so I'm not paranoid for having multiple drives with the same backups? Thank gawd.
>>6537 EMP will fry 'em all, anon.
>>6541 Only the electronics for any reasonably-likely EMP attack scenario (ie, Ionosphere nuclear burst). Removable media should come through just fine if that's all they face. Ofc the entire world will descend into an unprecedented shitfest at that point, so vidya will be only a secondary concern for a long while afterwards.
>>6543 >Ofc the entire world will descend into an unprecedented shitfest at that point, so vidya will be only a secondary concern for a long while afterwards Good, we will finally get rid of all the normalfags.
>>6550 Imagine a world where people actually care about the things that matter, I am doing my best so that I will be able to survive and make a stronger race of humans, one that doesn't fall to subversion and actually plays video games that are good, and doesn't go into jewtube comments like a subhuman dog and say: <really needs a remaster even tho I could just play it but I am a retarded subhuman brainwashed by a corporation into thinking I need a beautiful game to be remade but with niggers and ugly woman
>>6551 That's how it pretty much used to be before the social media cancer. People just played video games and discussed them on forums/imageboards. We really just need to nuke all the shitter, jewtube, faceberg etc. offices.

>>6970 Good thing there is an alternative method to trying a game for free. And just playing through it for free if you decide it's worth your time.
>>6971 Good thing there's an alternative method of playing every game for free.

>>8742 I'm very comfortable with never playing any of the modern slop, thank you very much.
Is emulation killing preservation? When you can play everything on a PC, then what happens to the physical consoles and games?

Physical mediabros, we're so back!
>>9285 Toddbros, we can have our 12 million polygon sandwiches now!
>>9285 nice, fuck digital, fuck jews
>>850 Also remember to disable any automatic updates whenever possible and always revert to a backup copy of whatever you are using. Because they will brick your game so the physical media does not work anymore for no reason.
>>9466 this applies even to browsers
>>9226 I hate when this happens
>>842 if only there was a easily available internet archive of all media physical and digital from the past... oh well time to off myself because of some schizo imaginary problem
