First Game Appearance: Pac-Man
Seriously, who doesn't know Pac-Man? While he may not be the best representative for Namco (some people we asked didn't even know what company created the pellet-hungry guy), he's one of the industry stalwarts, and definitely its most known face. Pac-Man probably led more people to video games than our no. 1 pick and Pong combined. We've always had Pac-Man Fever. Who hasn't?
