WE’RE GONNA WRECK IT! “Wreck-It Ralph” got us really excited about old video games. Including old video games that never existed, like “Fix-It Felix.” Kudos to you on that, Disney, for making a game we miss playing that we never missed before, because it wasn’t a real thing back then.
Here’s what came up when we talked about video game nostalgia:
- “Fix-It Felix Jr.” and its Blair Witchiness
- Arcades, Putt-Putt game rooms, and other places to play video games in our youth
- Nintendo, Magnavox Odyssey, Pong, Atari, and other classic game systems
- Holly’s love for video game booklets
More after the jump!
This truly has to be one of the best attempts ever to take a product that is not selling and trying to find the right marketing niche for it…
In spite of my introversion, I spent a fair amount of time of “World of Warcraft” playing in groups. This was especially true in my pre-expansion level-60 days. I played a moonkin, and it didn’t take me long to figure out that my job in a group wasn’t to cast spells and do as much damage as possible.
