As the rather close, 203-175 vote indicates, the ban still had its supporters. One of those supporters, Sue Walker, said that, "There is gaming all over the place, and there's nothing fun about it. I mean, have you played 'Demon's Souls'? I died something like 50 times in the first hour. And what the hell is with with the tiny city sizes in the new Sim City? I can't have a university and a stadium in the same city? Screw that."

Slayinit: buckler: Fun fact: Pac-man was originally named "Puck-man" in Japan (due to the little guy's shape), but it was renamed for the American release out of fears that unruly teens would scrape off the forward part of the "P" on the cabinet, turning it into an F.

If Fark existed then I'm sure most of us would have changed the "C" in Pac to an "F"...


Dammitall! I meant to say we would've changed the "P" to an "F" and the "C" to...<sigh>

/Nevermind

Yes, but the concern wasn't obscenity, but rather copyright infringement of this well-known F*ck-man game:

I agree. Teenagers with pockets full of quarters are very undesirable.

Back in the 80's having brass in pocket made you special, so special...I gotta have some of your attention.
