In a world where video game characters are alive, a lonely bad guy tries to earn appreciation but ends up threatens ruin.

A fun movie, most appropriate for the nostalgia fans of various old arcade games. It goes very very old, like Pixels - (2015 movie), which puts it in a particularly odd space.

A plague hits New York and then the world, and New York operatives are activated to do stuff and things.

I see there are other shorts, but I'm not going to watch them.

A time capsule shot into space back in 1982 is received as a declaration of war by aliens, who respond with multiple waves of 1980s video games-made-real, which only lifetime-loser video game nerds can face.

Uh. From the ground up, this movie cannot work. It's a kids movie which relies upon the nostalgia only a handful of middle-aged men might have but hopefully won't.
