If Pac-Man had affected us as kids, we'd all be running around in dark rooms, munching pills and listening to repetitive electronic music.

I remember my parents coming back from Reno, telling me how there seemed to be more people in line for the arcades than playing the slots. All because of this new game called Pac Man. The wall in the arcade was lined with the machines, and the casino people had to set up special lines through the floor so that the hundreds of people in line didn't get in the way of the gamblers. It was like that at every casino they went to.

Nope. None of us knew that about a game that is celebrating its 40th anniversary.

Except it was a pizza, not a puck.

Gaming's most famous mascot is actually over 50 years old and has been feature in almost all videogames since: the pong ball. All videogame frames are composed of millions of small coloured pong ball in its honour.

Veronica Belmont, sort of a gamer girl and hosted tech/game tv shows...the relevance is sketchy but it's good enough for me!
