SGM Super 30: Video Game #8


Name another game that inspired a rock single that reached gold status. Or a New York Times best-selling book that merely explored the secrets of defeating the game.

A popular myth has it that the designers of the game came up with the idea while eating a meal at a pizzeria; they saw, in a cheese pizza with some slices removed, the character that would inspire one of the most successful videogames ever.

Me, I'm more of a fan of Ms. Pac-Man, more for the moving fruit, changing mazes, and cutscenes between stages. Which I'm sure, in video game speak, probably makes me a fag.
