Being a man of a certain age, CF still retains fond memories of many of the 'real', proper, original video games.
Space Invaders, Asteroids: ohhh, those were the days. To this very day, CF could whup you, and your sorry ass, at the game of Defender.
Can't you just hear the little squeak when the humanoids got picked up? Doesn't your hair stand on end at the sound of the terrifying 'Baiter' appearing at the end of a protracted level?
So, it was inevitable that CF would experience a surge of nostagia, a lump in his throat, and a twitch in his joystick, to see what those boys at Google have done today:
Recognising that today's the 30th (what? For fuck's sake) anniversary of Pacman, they've not only amended their homepage, but .. oh this is good .. they've made it playable. Never mind all the synthetic cell shit: this is really clever.
Get over there. Play it. Enjoy it.
For the full experience, imagine you're in a nasty flat-roofed pub on the outskirts of Bury St. Edmunds, an illegal pint of cider getting steadily warmer beside you, as you work your way through a pile of the old, large, ten pence pieces.
No, no, it's just something in my eye...
