It has to be said Pac-Man is looking pretty well for a lad who’s been poppin’ pills since 1980. Just so you don’t think I’ve lost the plot altogether it’s the 30th anniversary of the release of landmark computer game Pac-Man. I have always been really shit at the game but much like Tetris it’s served me well over the years in wasting time especially when I should be doing something more productive.
In a fitting or not so fitting tribute here is a Pac-Man inspired tune from Ed Rush & Optical, one of the greatest stunts from French prankster Remi Gaillard before leaving you with the immortal words of Kristian Wilson from Nintendo, “Computer games don’t affect kids; I mean if Pac-Man affected us as kids, we’d all be running around in darkened rooms, munching magic pills and listening to repetitive electronic music”.
Grew up in the 90s, a Sega Megadrive man.
Who the hell is Pacman anyway?
Me too for the most part, although always liked Pac-Man over other old classics.
Think Pac-Man is the guy who sold Mario his first mushrooms and someone told me sonic was one of his ‘heavies’ collectin’ all the golden ring debts!
Nice post, thank you! Pacman is the video game that started it all. All of our video games nowadays owe their existence to Pacman.
