Parenting Perspective: Pac-Man Fever Circa 2010

Remember the Atari 2600? It was released in 1977, one of the first video consoles widely made for home use. I remember when we got ours. Combat, Air/Sea Battle, Asteroids, I played them over and over again. (On a side note, I was greatly disappointed when I first played Atari's version of Pac-Man. Those disappearing ghosts were very annoying. Some say that coin-op conversion flop led to the Great Video Game Crash of 1983. But that's another story.)
