Every year there always seems to be that one animated movie that all the “adults” go crazy for. This year it is, without a doubt, Wreck-It Ralph. The nostalgia factor alone is going to drive people to the theaters, and the studios obviously know it with these retro game promos they have released.

First up is the 1982 arcade hit, Fix-It Felix.

Jumping up to one of the greatest decades ever with 1997’s Sugar Rush Speedway.

And finally we reach the current time period. A time where many arcades are being substituted for personal gaming consols. But maybe that will change with Hero’s Duty!

Disney has done a marvelous job marketing this movie and these three videos continue to prove that. I’m totally ready to slap down money for a ticket, drink, and pop corn when Wreck-It Ralph comes to theaters November 2.

    I am looking so forward to this movie that it’s ridiculous. And I love how the arcade’s birthday offers move with inflation, for some reason.

      Well, I’d rather get a super duper deluxe double power points card with cheese over 50 cents anyday!
