Yes, I am old enough to remember the games that inspired Wreck-It Ralph. Rampage used to be one of my favourites on the SEGA Master System but in Ralph's world he's the one smashing down buildings instead of the beasties of Rampage.
US/NA Audiences can enjoy the wonders of Wreck-It Ralph in Cinemas now but EU audiences will have to wait until February 2013 before these 80's gaming gems enlighten their kids to characters that were once a joy to play, characters who were 2D pixels on a screen with more than just an urge to mow down everything in sight.
If you miss the days of arcade gaming and the 8 Bit/16 Bit era, then the head over to your nearest iOS app store for some arcade delights courtesy of Disney.
