One of the best-known jokes Marcus Brigstocke (an English comedian, actor and satirist who has worked extensively in stand-up comedy, television and radio) uses is an ironic commentary on the controversy regarding the influence of video games on children: “ If Pac-Man had affected us as kids, we’d all be running around in dark rooms, munching pills and listening to repetitive electronic music. ” This joke is frequently quoted on the internet and often attributed to famous figures in electronics (such as an apocryphal CEO of Nintendo, “Kristian Wilson,” although Hiroshi Yamauchi held that position from 1949 to 2002). What do you think of that joke? Is it funny to you? do you think there is some sort of truth behind it?
