Did you know that it’s Ms. Pac-Man and not Mrs. Pac-Man? I didn’t. I thought they were married. Are they brother and sister? Is Pac-Man married to someone else? Does his spouse just stay out of the spotlight in one of those you-signed-up-to-be-famous-and-I-didn’t type of things? Does he or she want a video game? There should be a game called "Francine" or "Ned" or whatever Pac-Man's significant other's name is. Are Mario and Luigi brothers? Donkey Kong is a bad guy, but Diddy is a good kid, but then Donkey Kong is a good guy in other games. Is there a game where Donkey Kong changes his ways? How did we all just get over the kidnapping?
That is the main takeaway I have from this bit about Brad Stevens, who told the Indy Star that part of his daily routine is playing Ms. Pac-Man on an arcade machine his wife bought for him a few years back.
Among other miscellaneous interesting nuggets, Stevens revealed that "Ms. Pac-Man," of all things, is a staple of his game-day rituals. He said his wife, who was in attendance along with his parents and children, bought him an old 'pizza parlor machine' a few years ago, and he has been hooked ever since.
'I play 'Ms. Pac-Man' for 10 to 15 games as a break between video,' Stevens said. 'And then I go on my jog, and go about my daily routine, but I make sure to get my 'Ms. Pac-Man' game in at home every single day. 10-15 minutes (of video games) isn't that bad, tell your parents you're good.'
