Pac-Man! Human?

| | Comments (1)
The struggle to survive, or escape from danger, is inherent in all human beings. Although I doubt Pac-Man is human, the same theory can be applied as shown in this video lecture by Dr. Jerz. The "simple" and "meaningless" tags we labeled on Pac-Man now need to be rethought.



Well, he's not human, but neither is Sonic the Hedgehog. When you think back to Pong or Space Invaders, you can see that Pac-Man actually has more human qualities than most players were used to in the videogames that were available at the time.

I believe the cartoon intervals between the levels probably count as the first story-driving cut-scenes, and that helped to give the little yellow mouth some personality.
