The birthplace of Ms. Pac-Man

If you were a child of the 80s, then odds are you spent quite a few quarters with Pac-Man and his wife. They’re still around, mostly in next-gen format on XBLA and PSN but back in the day (for several years at least) to get a real Pac-Man experience, it was only available in the arcades. Here’s a rather cool look at how those awesome cabinets some of us fell in love with were made back in the 80s by Midway/Bally.

    This is great. I managed a game room back in the day, and used to have to try and fix those things.

    As Mr. Spock would say: “Fascinating.”

When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand.
