TIME TO BREATHE LIFE
BACK INTO THE PAST!
When you think of nostalgia, what pops into your head? A food that takes you back? A movie that reminds you of a happier time in life? For Ralph Ronzio, that word means, "arcade games".
Chasing Nostalgia is a show that follows Ralph (Retro Ralph on YouTube) on a journey around the country as he checks out the coolest and most unique arcade collections and retro memorabilia. Ralph will do anything to preserve the memories of putting quarters on the glass, and is on a mission to rebuild the retro-gaming future.
