Play It One More Time

Playing with a pacman arcade machine was a very popular thing to do during the 1980’s. I think I was about 11 years old when my brothers and I used to play this game. Other popular arcade games played at that time were Dig Dug, Donkey Kong and Space Invaders. Since these games could get so exciting, we'd sometimes lose track of time. So our parents made sure that we only play games during weekends and for a limited time only.

The games I mentioned can still be played at the computer, but I guess it just won't be as exciting as before. It is just so different when playing them on the arcade machine and I think people my age will agree with me. A few months ago, I happened to drop by in one shopping malls’ game room and noticed they have classic games from the 80’s. I would have loved to try to show it to my eight year old daughter if only we weren't in a hurry. I felt nostalgic looking at the arcade machine and perhaps one of these days, I am going to play it with my kid. I’m sure she will be delighted if we played the games together.
