Namco Museum (N64)

Sale price$14.99


Don't be thrown off by the title of this game--the artwork in this museum isn't the stuff that field trips are made of. Instead, it's a course in ancient video gaming that focuses on six of the format's most important historical figures. Start with the arcade version of the first family: Pac-Man and Ms. Pac-Man. Sadly, Namco didn't include "Pac-Man Fever" on the soundtrack. The next exhibit showcases variations from the top-down shooter period: Galaga and Galaxian. Drive by Pole Position, an early milestone in gaming realism, and finally to Dig Dug, an early milestone in gaming surrealism, where the object is to dig underground and pump enough air into subterranean monsters to make them burst. Remember: those who don't know history are doomed to repeat it.
