Pac Man 30th Anniversary

Pac Man 30th Anniversary:Two of the most amazing things of my childhood are celebrating their thirtieth anniversary this weekend: Pacman and Empire Strikes Back. It’s hard to believe it’s been thirty years since Pacman fever reigned, but even harder to believe that this is the weekend I got sick in the cinema because I made my dad take me to see Empire Strikes Back and tell him that there was no flu.

My friends and I played in direct Pacman Atari, and when we were not playing on the Atari, we were in the gallery of local feed quarters into the console. I even raised my daughter on Pacman, and today you can find him with his Game Boy in the corner chewing pellets and chasing ghosts around the maze.

Google celebrates birthday with a special game of Pacman can play right on the search screen, but if you do not want to leave the site and the opening of Google, I embedded a Pacman game you can play right here:

1980 was a year of life shaping, as Empire Strikes hits theaters. Along with the Pacman game, my friends and I played Star Wars, the new film reviving the best possible way it would not be able to see outside the theater for years after its launch. You can often find walking around with cardboard laser guns, me with my hair in cinnamon buns, our Han Solo Chewbacca saying (the neighbor’s dog) to the “laugh up, Fuzzball.”

The world was not like today, but both Pacman and Empire Strikes Back had a huge impact on the youth of yesteryear. Even if they were alive in 1980, you probably have heard and enjoyed so much at some point during the last thirty years.

Take a moment to celebrate today. I mean, come on … Not every day get Han Solo is frozen in carbonite.
