Pac-Man Munches Its Way Into Tech History

Technology that Shapes Our Lives

October 10, 1979
Pac-Man makes its debut in Japan.

Pac-Man wasn’t the first videogame – arcade games, including video versions, had existed for years – but it is considered one of the classics and an icon of 1980s popular culture.

Upon its release, Pac-Man and eventually its spin-offs, became a social phenomenon that sold a bevy of merchandise and also inspired, among other things, an animated television series and a top-ten hit single.

When Pac-Man was released, the most popular arcade video games were Space Invaders and Asteroids. Pac-Man is often credited with being a landmark in video game history, and is among the most famous arcade games of all time. It is also the highest-grossing video game of all time, having generated more than $2.5 billion – in quarters – by the 1990s.

Nearly thirty years after its introduction, Pac-Man is still being sold and remains one of the most popular videogames of all time.
