In 1979, Namco released
Pac-Man, the most popular arcade game of all
time. Over 300,000 units were sold worldwide. More than 100,000
units are sold in the United States alone. Originally named Puck Man,
the game was retitled after executives saw the potential for vandals
to scratch out part of the letter P on the game's marquee, which might
discourage parents from letting their children play. Pac-Man became
the first video game to be popular with both males and females.
"Computer games don't affect
kids, I mean if Pac Man affected us as kids, we'd all run around in a
darkened room munching pills and listening to repetitive
music." - Kristian Wilson, Nintendo, Inc, 1989.
