Happy Birthday PacMan!

October 2016 is the 36th Anniversary of PacMan’s arrival in the United States.  Do you feel old now?  I sure do! I couldn’t tell you how many quarters I fed the game at Pepi’s Pizza.  It was so fun and addicting I can still conjure up the sound of him gobbling up the dots, getting an extra life, and nabbing a ghost.  And the sad sound of him dying.  🙁

While I was happy when the Atari version came out – I didn’t have to beg my parents to take me to pizza all the time – the arcade game was still far more fun.  And there was pizza!!!

Where did you first play it?  Were you even born when it came out?
