"Release Date: May 1980 (JP) Publisher: Namco Developer: Namco Genre: Action A study would have to be done to confirm this, but I'd be willing to bet a decent sum of money that despite other game characters surpassing Namco's yellow mascot over time, that Pac-Man is still the most recognizable character in video games. Heck, back in the day, even the ghosts (Blinky, Pinky, Inky, and Clyde) were household names. But anyway, Pac-Man is one of those rare titles that if you have a young kid play it,"

"Pac-Man Simple but I mean c'mon. A brave warrior fighting ghosts without any weapons. Then coming across magical powers that weaken them and courageously moving on without knowing what's ahead. A true hero indeed! ;D "

" If the ghosts really wanted Pac-Man dead, why wouldn't they just put rat poison in place of some of those pellets? If ghosts aren't tangible creatures, how is Pac-Man eating them? If Pac-Pig eats everything in sight, is there really a need for him to eat diet foods like fruit? The only thing about this game that isn't questionable is how fun it was when it released. The yellow porker has aged well, too. RUNNER-UP: Boxing (Atari 2600)"

"The idea was a simple one. You, as Pac-Man, were charged with the goal of eating every pellet in the one maze that made up the game's entire level design. Points were given for each pellet, and more points were given for random fruit, which would appear off and on throughout the game. Running freely in each maze was a cast of ghosts, complete with quirky nicknames and individual characteristics, and all were bent on the destruction of Pac-Man. The simplicity of the formula caught on like wildfi"

"Arcade - 1980 "The whole thing actually started with me walking around arcades watching how many boys were playing and the fact that all the machines were about killing aliens, tanks, or people. Girls were simply not interested, and I suddenly had motivation for my work: I wanted game arcades to shed this dark, sinister image, and it seemed to me that the way to raise the atmosphere of a place is to entice girls to come in. the whole purpose of Pac-Man was to target women and couples, and get "
