|The most popular arcade game of all-time: Pac-Man|
Released on May 22, 1980, at time when Asteroids and Space Invaders ruled the video arcade, Pac-Man took the world by storm gobbling up the competition on its way to becoming the most popular arcade game of all time. No one could resist and the proof was in the ka-ching. Pac-Man has devoured some 10 billion quarters since its introduction and spawned countless spinoffs and copies. Only 6 people are known to have received a perfect score of 3,333,360 before being shut out by the kill screen. The most recent to do so acheived his perfect score in 3 hours, 41 minutes and 22 seconds: a new world record.
