    I remember saving my money up to purchase this specific game back in the day. When I finally did play it, I was a little disappointed, but was young enough that I still found enjoyment in the game and played it too death. I would have liked for it to have been more arcade accurate but now I consider it a classic along with the games sounds. If you want more arcade accuracy there have been several remakes and hacks including the Dintari Pacman and the Nukey Shay Pac-Man 8K which are both excellent...

    I never got it only because I owned a 5200. But I do remember a neighbor down the road getting it and inviting me over to play it. I already had Pac-Man for my system so I didn't expect anything different. Once I arrived in went pac-man and on went my dissecting. Nothing was right, I dogged it, but at the same time I found joy in playing it. It was a different pacman. Once I got home, though, I was never so happy to seev my pacman again.

    Been a little sick (don't worry!)

    I'm glad you are feeling better and able to clear out those sinuses. It could just be seasonal allergies, but you are wise to take it seriously and be careful.

    So, I did not get it immediately. My aunt got it for my cousins and they all were very excited with it and playing it like crazy. When I first saw it at their home, I was very disappointed in how it looked. It was nothing like the arcade. The colors were all wrong. Despite that, I did buy it and played it lots...until Ms. Pac-Man was released. Then I never played it again. Ms. Pac-Man showed that they had done a lousy job adapting the original Pac-Man to the system. I played Atari's Pac-Man again years later when I found hacks in Atari Age. Nukey Shay's Pac-Man 8K I think is what Atari could have done back then. Different but with enough similarities to be more acceptable.

    Here's a question for all the original owners who were there on Day 1: Did you think Atari 2600 Pac-Man was bad when you first got it? Was it a huge disappointment out of the box? Or did you enjoy the heck out of playing that game and only later came to realize the rest of the world thought it was bad? Genuinely curious to see if you guys had varying experiences and there was a bit of a "Mandela Effect" going on, or if everybody was on the same page from Day 1 saying "It stinks!"

    I been suffering severe sinus issues past 3 days. FINALLY everything that was jammed up in my nasal passages released into my nose and I was able to blow it out, required much sudafed, inhalation and mostly ibuprofen and Tylenol because I get a severe sinus headaches from it, the first day really bad and painful but the next couple days even after doing everything still experiencing a constant low underlying headache which clearly was wearing me out. Today is the first day I actually feel relief. Blew a bunch a shit out of my nose and throat in a hot steamy shower, unclogged finally! I will continue on sudafed for the rest of the day until I go to bed then hopefully I can do without it after that, knocks me on my ass though, I hibernate like bear but it makes me dream like crazy and I feel it helps in the body healing process. First thing I noted was no cough or any other symptoms so not jumping the gun or being paranoid about Covid but at the same time need to be careful, don't want to be compromised by anything that might cause me to be even more susceptible to virus. Would not be the first time where I was sick and got through it only to be knocked on my ass by something even worse! But yeah, feeling much more like my old self which may never be GREAT these days but at least it allows me to be functional and for that I am thankful.

    My recollection is: Electronic Games magazine panned the game, and I'm pretty sure I read that before buying. I know that I had to save up to buy it, and I remember the purchase day and store well. The Pac Man box barely left my hands at the check stand. We got home, and I played and played. The flaws were obvious. Wrong colors, wrong sounds, Pac Man only facing side to side. But I played and kept track of high scores. Friends played too. We had fun playing for high scores and also ripping on the game as we went. Answering your question isn't easy. I knew it wasn't great. But I had fun playing it anyway. I don't think the game ruined the gaming industry. But for me personally, it marked the end of the 2600. My thought being that if that's the best that system could do, it was probably time to move on. Looking back, I'm pretty sure that was the last game I paid full price for. I didn't start buying 2600 games again until they were all on clearance. Pac Man and Defender were the two that stick out in my mind as "not good enough". I moved on to an Atari 800XL, which had an awesome Pac Man and Defender. PS - I think I was 13 years old when 2600 Pac Man came out.

    It's a great movie, isn't it? I first saw it when I was maybe 5, and I only remembered fragments until I saw it again many years later. Some of the best animation I've seen. I don't know if they did something special with the VHS, but the soundtrack in particular came across really well. That's so cool that you had a CED player! I wasn't even familiar with CEDs until a few years ago, but I find it a really interesting technology.

    I just now seen this but I couldn't help but notice how the area where Snoopy's dog house sits looks a lot like a baseball field. This actually looks like a cool game.
