When game saves go bad

ThumbPad Writes: "Pop quiz hotshot! You've invested dozens of hours into a game. You load up the save, as per usual, but it ain't there no more. What do you do? What, do you do?!"

The dreaded thought of save file corruption lingers in the back of the minds of many a hardcore gamer. For a veteran like myself, I count my lucky stars for not having had too many misfortunes in save-game matters over my 20+ gaming years, but alas, that same dreaded thought, the fear of countless hours played and lost, has finally caught up with me.
