As the title suggests, I am searching for examples of games that are corrupted when played today for one cause or another (at least in their original forms) due to disc / cartridge / medium deterioration, manufacturing flaws, bugs that occur even years after the fact, etc.
Pokemon Gold and Silver are the first examples which come to mind. The save battery from the cart is also used for monitoring the in-game clock. Consequently, the battery runs out surprisingly quickly, perhaps in as soon as five years. My original cart at least can no longer save.
