Here is a well done look into the real world of arcade game COLLECTING! The movie Wreck It Ralph gave us the classic games in a unique perspective...and now we can see those same games explored in the REAL world by people who both love and rescue these arcade games that are slowly slipping away from us! See how they get rebuilt by one of the pioneers of restoration and how he tries to make a go with a commercial arcade! Peppered with interviews of some of the first designers of these machines who talk the original days they were manufactured and how many of them have withstood the test of time! Richie Knucklez love for these machines is shown as he struggles with today's problems of storefront rent, lack of parts to fix them, and balancing family life with his passion!
