I want to take my video game home with my on the plane and don't want to put it in my checked luggage because they just carelessly toss luggage around. But I want to know if it is safe to take it through scanners; I've taken burned CD's through before and they were erased, I don't want that to happen to this $80 game. If anyone knows whether or not it is safe I would be very grateful!
Yes you can take your video games CDs safely through airport scanners. Airport scanners (either X-ray scanners or magnetic field scanners) won't damage CDs or DVDs by any means. Both CDs and DVDs are optical storage media and X-Rays do not interfere with them...
