Pac-Man was the first video game I ever played in the arcade back in the day. I remember not making it very long because I was always trying to gobble up the power pellets and didn’t do a good job evading the ghosts.
Those of us who grew up playing video games back in the 1980s have a special place in our hearts for the pixel art characters from the 8-bit arcade and home console world. From Pac-Man to Dig Dug to Donkey Kong to Galaga, game artists had to really stretch their creativity and imagination to give us memorable and identifiable characters using the most primitive of blocks and limited color schemes.
Running around a maze with ghosts on your ass and gobbling dots all day works up quite the thirst. It’s important for a Pac-Man to keep hydrated. While Pac-Man Energy Drink is hard to come by these days, there are plenty of other thirst quenchers to choose from.
You know what the ghosts from Pac-Man could use? Plants growing out of their heads, that’s what. Yeah, that makes them much more adorable, and less intimidating for sure. That’s why I love these Pac-Man ghost planters from Dips and Prints.

When you travel, you need a place to keep all your grooming and toiletry products organized so they don’t just fall out all over your clothing and spill everywhere. A toiletry bag, aka “dopp kit” is a must have, and I think I must have this one.
Do you need a place to keep your money safe? Perhaps you’d like a safe that is also a game? Well, check this out. The Pac-Man: Procrastination Power Maze Safe is a miniature bank that is also a Pac-Man game.
A few years back, an artist created a sculpture of what Pac-Man might look like in the real world. The image was simultaneously adorable and disturbing, and made me wonder what the yellow dot-gobbler’s insides might look like.
The very first arcade game I ever played a sit-down console style Pac-Man game at a Pizza Hut, and it was awesome. I fed more quarters into arcade games than I care to admit. If you want some of that ’80s arcade nostalgia in your home or office, check this out.
Out of all of the good old 1980s arcade games, Pac-Man is one that truly stands out, with its simple looking but challenging gameplay, iconic characters, and memorable music and sounds, it’s a true masterwork of arcade gaming that’s still fun to play.
Do you have Pac-Man fever? Is it driving you crazy? Well, calm down my arcade loving friend. Wear these Pac-Man Boxer Briefs. They’re perfect for when things get too hot and you just have to play Pac-Man for hours in your shorts.
If I had a Bitcoin for every quarter I dropped into an arcade machine back in the 1980s, I would have been on the top of Forbes’ list of wealthiest people. Alas, my coins are long gone, pumped into the bellies of Dig Dug, BattleZone, and Tempest machines.
ZZ Top had it right. You’re looking at the perfect suit for those who have to dress up for a company function, but don’t want to wear a boring blue blazer. After all, nowhere in the dress code does it say you can’t have Pac-Man on your suit and tie.
