I CAN. NOT. WAIT. To see what these kids do with Centipede.

I think it's the sound effects that really make this work for me.

Goddamnit Gator, you just had to go there, huh?

The sound effects are what wrecked it for me. I would have preferred the actual Pac-Man sounds or just a little Buckner & Garcia.

When pac-man catches up to a blue ghost in that video, it looks like they start dry-humping. Which, okay, interesting choice, but they couldn't come up with another way of simulating that?

All that effort, and they can't bother to make the maze correctly? It always confuses me when people do what ought to be a labor of love, but half-ass one really important facet. Full-ass or nothing, I say!

It would be satisfying if someone created a playable set from the images used in the human Tetris game. I watched that just now, all thinking, "No, that's not what you do with a long piece, dumbass! Oh, and now you've created a ledge. Great!"

Sweet. This brightened up the day of my coworker, whose ring tone is the Pac Man theme.

I'd quote Scott Pilgrim, but none of you guys saw it!

This one may be a bit better, Joey Michaels.

Once I heard the sound, I could not close the tab fast enough.

I also love the sounds effects. They remind me of Mario Twins.
