I heard that our favorite medicated
video game character was originally going to be Puck-Man
due to his circular
shape. The name was changed to "Pac-Man
" to avoid the defacement
which would obviously befall the machines if the game had kept its original
Looks like this bit of entertainlingly false video game lore belongs alongside Luigi in Super Mario 64, Mortal Kombat's "nude-alities", and other such rumors.
