The great thing is that these games are now accessible through inexpensive hand held consoles. My personal fave from Namco has five of the top classics: PacMan, DigDug, Bosconian, Rally-X and Galaxian.
The console itself is really simple, with just a joystick and control button, and a nifty switch to start it up. It runs on a couple of batteries and plugs into most TV sets. Connect it to a big screen with surround sound and crank up the wakka wakka PacMan FX to your heart’s content.
To think I used to spend hours dropping change into machines at the local video arcade. Now, for a quarter of the price of a Playstation, I can get my fill and beat the kids at their own games. Enjoy! -Angry Dad, Father’s Day Week guest contributor
