It's hard to understate just how much of a cultural impact Pac-Man has had on the world. In many ways his influence rivals that of other video game mascots like Mario and Sonic.
When it was released 40 years ago, Pac-Man was the arcade game that everyone had to play. Thanks timeless gameplay that was easy to play but hard to master, Pac-Man was able to break into cultural zeitgeist at the time with people of all ages and backgrounds. It brought people together and to this day remains as iconic as ever.
