I remember coming across a Pac-Mania arcade in a nature reserve somewhere. My parents would take us out into nature as much as they could, but once we saw that, they were down for the count. I don't think we left the arcade hall ever when visiting there. Even if we started on the other side, we'd do a straight line to the arcade hall to play it. until now I believe it was the best Pac Man spinoff made.

I used to love playing Pac-Man at the arcade. I spent a lot of money on it. The Pac-Man song in this video was funny. Pac-Man has featured in more modern songs too. Check out "Mac Man" by Beanie Sigel. It's a hip-hop track which is basically Beanie rapping over Pac-Man sound effects. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w0RZvFqzBBQ The youtube link is for the Pac-Man (Mac Man) track by Beanie Sigel. If you listen to the lyrics he mentions a lot of other video games like Mario Bros, Donkey Kong, Track and Field, Pitfall, Asteriods etc etc.
