How does online gaming affect retro gaming?

As someone who grew up when video games first got popular, I love that I can play old games. But one thing that worries me is that games that exist mainly online wont be preserved for the sake of video game history. Are there any plans in the retro gaming community or among game developers to figure out a way to preserve online games and give future gamers a chance to enjoy them on some level? Or when these games' servers get shut off are they just gone forever?
