Wreck-It Ralph's opening four minutes hit me with an intense sensation of nostalgia. The iconography on display in these scenes spoke directly to my youth, when the only way to get a premium video gaming experience was in an arcade. Within the first handful of scenes, from the charmingly retro graphic of Fix-It Felix Jr. to the bustling scenes of a busy 1980s arcade scene, steadily dwindling to nothing with the passage of time, Wreck-It Ralph had pulled me in. I felt the child-like elation of re-living the awe experienced when entering a busy arcade, overwhelmed by the choice and variety of games on offer, and then the bitter decline of age as that variety gave way to dance-mat simulators and first person shooters.
