Preserving Video Game History

CNN's got an article up about preserving the history of games after the International Video Game Hall of Fame opened up and the Smithsonian announced a 2012 gaming exhibit.

Worth reading, though it weirdly calls "Pitfall" a cult classic and makes the same point over and over that the gaming industry moves too quickly and forgets its past compared against other media, only to refute that by talking about TV shows being taped over and lost film reels.
