Wrecking Team FortressSo how does this game-jumping business work? Ralph had it hard enough getting in and out of his own game - after that kerfuffle getting out of Pac-Man, he didn't know if he wanted to risk getting into a game he really had no business in. Besides, wouldn't he stick out like a missingno? Turbo obviously didn't fit in with Roadblaster, so what chance did the cartoony hillbilly Ralph have sneaking into some futuristic shooter? And what other games gave out medals?
