SideQuest: What home console game do you think deserved to have it’s own arcade game but never got one? 

Video Game Challenge:Uncle Poo

Pac Man Fever by Buckner & Garcia

I’ve got a pocketfull of quarters

And I’m headed to the arcade

I don’t have a lot of money

But I’m bringing everything

I made I have a callus on my finger

and my shoulder’s hurtin’, too

I’m gonna eat ’em all up

Just as soon as they turn blue

‘Cause I got Pac Man Fever (Pac Man Fever)

It’s drivin’ me crazy (Drivin’ me crazy)

I got Pac Man Fever (Pac Man Fever)

I’m goin’ outta my mind (Goin’ outta my mind)

I got Pac Man Fever (Pac Man Fever)

I’m goin’ outta my mind (Goin’ outta my mind)
