Op Ed

GameInformer.com - Opinion ó Pac-Man Has Always Been The Bad Guy. Thanks Ant.
"At this point, Pac-Man is far from the vindicated Popeye character Iwatani set out to make him. Pac-Man has no excuse for recklessly gobbling up ghost after ghost. This goes so beyond self-defense. I could go a step further and suggest the Pac-Man series has always been about the gluttony of modern consumerism, but by writing this sentence, I already have. No way does a puck (or a pizza thatís missing a slice, or whatever Pac-Man is) need to eat cookies that badly."

At first I wanted to call the article "clickbait", but then realized what he's actually describing is the gaming's casual/accessbility/removing all challenge/"press the button and something awesome happens" trend.

Pac-Man becoming Pac-Mao is just a small part of it.

There is a weird tendency amongst some to call any article written to be goofy and fun "clickbait." I'm not surprised you're amongst those people.

There's a weird tendency among some to not read a post beyond the first 9 words. But I won't make any assumptions about you and will assume it was an accident.
