The first album (OK, cassette tape) I ever bought.
Dude. DUUUUUUUDE. Sure, Google can be corporately evil and all, but that was far too much fun.
I preferred Ms. Pac Man to Pac Man -- I think it was the variety of the mazes, but man was I a Tempest junkie for a while.
Ms. Pac Man, the table version, is a classic (last time I saw one was at Brickskeller in Georgetown back around 1999). As for me, I was a serious Galaga nut.
Not sure if i should be proud or embarrassed, but just fired up Pac Man Fever on the Itunes. Seriously might be the worst lyrics in the history of pop music ("gonna eat the cherries up and take them all for a ride").
I love Ms. Pac Man. For Christmas a few years ago my nephew gave me one of those controllers you plug into the TV to play Ms. Pac Man. I may have formed a slight addiction. Not quite sure I have the will power to avoid Google today.
ADAM! ADAM! "If you hit the "Insert Coin" button twice, it spawns Ms. Pacman on the same board, controlled with the WASD keys. You can play them both simultaneously."(Thank you, Metafilter!)
My father was the single greatest Ms. Pac-Man player I ever saw. He was the only person I knew who could make it to the second "cut scene" on his first life.
So cool. There's a half hour of my workday that I won't get back and don't want to...
I wouldn't say I am all that great at Ms. Pac-Man, but it did provide me my most bizarre, it's-like-I'm-in-some-sort-of-bad-parody-movie moment of my life (ok, the only one). I was with a very un-sober crowd at Wonderland in DC and got onto a Ms. Pac-Man roll, leading to a huge crowd around the table cheering every screen cleared. When I finally lost, an actual, only quasi-ironic round of applause went up and I had drinks bought for me the rest of the night. Somehow, I was unable to impress anyone with this tale of heroic achievement at work the following Monday.
