Smile Happy Birthday, Pac-Man!

Well, I didn't see anybody else do this here, so here it is, Happy 30th Birthday to Pac-Man. Today May 22nd is the day Pac Man was debuted in Japan. That's why those of you who surf through Google have seen that they've changed to logo to resemble the classic Pac Man maze and when you click on it, you can play it. (http://www.google.com/)

Fun fact: Pac Man was created because the creator was eating a pizza, he took out a slice, and there was Pac Man. In case you didn't know. If you did know that....good for you, don't flame me for it.

Mini Review: Pac Man is one of my favorite games ever. Whenever I see it, I can't resist picking it up and giving it a shot. To this day, it is still pissing off gamers like it did 30 years ago. Everyone knows the goal is to eat all the pellets while avoiding the colored ghosts. It's addictive, and requires a bit of planning and strategy. The four Power pellets do help, which allow you to turn the tables and eat the ghosts. One problem I've always had though, is that once you eat the ghosts, why can't they just stay dead or in the ghost box? Well, if you could kill them, then there would be no challenge so now I know why I guess. Still, I hate it when they herd me into a corner and kill me. At times, the frustration factor can be annoying, but that's a part of the charm, I guess.
To be honest, though, I always did like Ms. Pac Man the best. Why? Yes because there are more shortcuts in that game. Well, that and they change the maze design every couple levels to switch it up.Still though, everything I addressed for Pac Man I guess remains the same for Ms, but both are still fun.Nice difficulty, and smooth controls. Those awesome nolstagiac sound effects that just scream of the 80s, and it's so simple of a game that it literally is timeless. Pac Man would still be playable yet another 30 years from now even though it will be 60 years old then, because of how simple of a game it is. And it's classic.


Overall Grade: A.

Happy Birthday to one of my favorite games and game characters of all time.

Pac Man seems somewhat underrated in my opinion...I don't see too many gamers celebrating him. It seems games today are all graphics.

I'm afraid Pac Man is even greater than the plumber. But I was excited to see them together in Mario Kart Arcade GP.
