For many years, Pac-man has been the mascot of all things video games. But as the years progressed he has been outshined by the likes of such stars as Mario, Megaman and Sonic. Well I say it is not time for Pac-man to seek his revenge by eating the power pill of justice and laying the smash down on all who oppose him.
Plainly and simply out: I call dibs on Pac-man!
Now you may ask, "Grimm, why do you consider yourself the chosen one to unleash Pac-man's fury?" Well here they are, the reasons why I am the best man for the job.
1.) I was in 2 consecutive Pac-Man Championship DX tournaments
- Back when PAX East first started, I entered a tournament. While I didn't win, i did place 3rd (the guy who beat me moved on to win the whole thing so I say that makes me 3rd and the guy who lost to the runner up being 4th. The 2nd year I went I placed 2nd. My own hubris got the better of me and one fatal mistake was made. They asked me after my semi-final win if I wanted to wait a few mnutes, I said no, and it was my undoing. But I still did damn good and i DID get the highest point totals of anyone in that 2nd tournament so that's something. The picture shows my runner up medal for placing in the top 4 in my first tournament. In the 2nd tournament I played... 2nd place got nothing.
2.) Of the 3,051 games I own, 21 of them are Pac-man related (not including Pac Championship and Championship DX on XBLA)- You could say that I am quite the fan of Pac-man in general. I have played almost every game there is including all of the arcade stand up machines (thanks to Funspot in New Hampshire and their Video Game Museum). One of the first games I ever played were Pac-man and Jr. Pac-man for the Atari 2600 and I spent countless hours playing them. To this day, Pac-man is one of those games you can still play for hours and have a blast. Hell, I even own Pac-pix! Now that's dedication!
3.) I have wanted Pac-man (also Megaman and Little Mac) in Smash bros since the N64 game.
- Years ago, when Super Smash Bros first came out for the N64, my friends and I always talked about what if there were guest characters from other games. We all spouted off names like Megaman and Sonic, but I was always a firm believer that pac-man deserved a chance to be a playable fighter. All these years later, when I saw the announcement, I lost my mind! I couldn't believe that alongside Megaman and Little Mac who I also wanted, that my main choice made it in the game! When Melee came and he wasn't in I was crushed. Then Brawl came and we had Sonic and Snake.... but no Pac-man. Finally, his time has come and my dream has come true!
4.) I have Pac-man floor mats in my car and a steering wheel cover
- Sure they're beat to hell cuz I've had them for over a decade, but they're still there and still awesome. Sadly the steering wheel cover is too big for my current car, but I still have it somewhere.
So to make a long story less long, I call dibs on Pac-man because he and I go way back and have been bros for over 20 years. I for one cannot wait to see what he can do next week in Super Smash bros for the 3DS! I have dibs on Pac-man!
