Pac-Man: The Untold Story of How We Really Played The Game
I’m a big fan of Joystick Nation, by J. C. Herz (disclaimer: Affiliate Link). And so on reading Pac-Man: The Untold Story of How We Really Played The Game, by Cat DeSpira… I immediately taken with both the writing as well as the revelation about “how” many of us used to play Pac-Man.
I don’t want to give too much away here, and so I’ll leave a snippet from the lovely opening:
DeSpira mixes the history of how Pac-Man came to be, alongside her revelation about the way in which many of us played the game. It’s a great look back on the early 80’s, and the impression the game left on us (and the one that we, in turn, we left on it).
