35 years ago today arcade games became the giant they were until the mid 90s thanks to a yellow hockeypuck and some blinking ghosts. Surprisnly Amazon even had this as a billboard on their site today, i remember it in the arcades even well into the mid 80s. My fiance, who is way younger than the game, scored a sit down arcade machine she adores while i'm stuck with an unopened atari copy lol. If not for this game we probably wouldn't have the games we do now.

I'd have paid to see Mayweather go up against pac-man, being chased around by a giant yellow disc going "wakka wakka" lol.
by this guy?

lol pretty much the same sound file actually. Not entirely sure why they used a sound so close to that though.
