The birthplace of Ms. Pac-Man

If you were a child of the 80s, then odds are you spent quite a few quarters with Pac-Man and his wife. They’re still around, mostly in next-gen format on XBLA and PSN but back in the day (for several years at least) to get a real Pac-Man experience, it was only available in the arcades. Here’s a rather cool look at how those awesome cabinets some of us fell in love with were made back in the 80s by Midway/Bally. 

This is great. I managed a game room back in the day, and used to have to try and fix those things.
