    May 22nd is the 30th birthday of our beloved yellow dot eating Pac-man. Pac-man, who is recognized by 94% of game consumers, has appeared in more than 30 officially licensed titles. Celebrate his birthday by giving DS Pack a play!

    Happy Birthday Pac-man, paku-paku taberu, make a wish!

    BTW, you can actually play the Google logo as a Pac-Man game. Google even worked with Namco to make it perfect (so it includes multiplayer, the 255-level bug, breaks, etc.)

    Double Edit: I just read the OP. It said 20 years, but the celebration is for the 30 year milestone. Fix this or I will sue your balls to the wall for slander.

    I was so addicted to the pacman on Google today. I was in school and I had a whole group of people behind me cheering me on. :DDD

    LOL
    So this means Pac-Man is a whole two and a half weeks older than I am.

    Good to know.

    Haha, damn, when I noticed that on Google for the first time I wall all like, "Hey, it's Pac-man. Cool." thinking it was just an image.

    Then it started moving. So I thought it was just a Flash animation/banner or something.

    But then I noticed it responded to my directional keys. [​IMG]

    You can even play the google game with a second player after hitting "insert coin" you get ms. pac-man whom you can control with the wasd buttons. Oh and if you wait long enough after losing, google will go searching PAC-MAN 30th anniversary.

    This wasn't flash or anything. This was HTML5 which was pretty awesome.

    Also, I am one of the 6% who never heard of pac-man [​IMG] (lie, I do know him)

    I still remember the very first time I saw a Pac-Man arcade machine. I was at this little kiddie amusement park called simply "Kiddie Park". My aunt always used to take me and my brother and sister there when we were kids. The place is actually still there too. It's like a miniature amusement park with a bunch of carnival rides....even has a mini roller coaster.

    Anyway, I was 12 years old when I first saw the Pac-Man machine in the small arcade they had there. I remember thinking that the game looked like non-sense. A pie eating dots and being chased by ghosts? And what the hell is that siren sound for? I thought it was ridiculous.
    Of course, like everyone else at the time, the game grew on me and that thought of non-sense went out the window. To this day I still occasionally load it up on an emulator and play it for awhile. I still like Galaga more though.....that came out a year later.

    I never believed my dad when he would tell me that time will seem to speed up when you get older, but here I am 30 years later and what he said is so very true. It just doesn't seem like 30 years have passed since Pac-Man first hit arcades.

    Happy birthday Pac-Man!

    Pac-Man Battle Royale. Supposedly coming out on PSN and Xbox Live Arcade (as well as arcades as seen) later in the early fall. Hoping to see more on this at E3 this year....

    I'm only 17 and I've experienced that. Time does begin to fly.
