    pac man is 500 points? its hardly worth 100! i think they should lower it. i think 5$ is a little to high for an arcade classic. Anyone agree?

    Just like Galaga was a huge waist on the VC. Can't even save your high score and it is like a cheap knock-off of the arcade version.... For $15 more get yourself the gamecube Namco museum disc with all the EXACT arcade versions.

    Gunsnroses...you're breaking the rules. You can't try to advertise/sell anything on Wiichat.

    I'd reccomend buying one of the 3 Gamecube games below instead:

    Namco Museum 50th Anniversary (the original arcade Pac Man is on it)
    Pac Man World 2 (the original arcade Pac Man can be unlocked on it)
    Pac Man World 3 (the original arcade Pac Man is on it, not sure if unlocking is required)

    But, if the NES version of Pac Man is the one you remember most fondly, Virtual Console Pac Man is good too, and so is the NES classic version on the GBA.

    ROMs are illegal.
    Do not use them.

    $5 for pac-man is bullcrap. Just don't buy it.

    unless you own the original game, which in the case of most people on here they probly do

    simply if you dont like it dont buy it. Its your choice.

    Don't waste $5 on a VC Packman game when you can play it for free on the Wii by going onto the Internet Channel and playing it online. As you said, it's not worth $5.

    I couldn't agree more... I thought the same thing when I bought Donkey Kong, then realized it was only $5, nothing to get all worked up about

    I agree that $5 is excessive for Pac-Man, but if they lowered the price for that, they'd have to come up with different prices for a lot of the NES titles, and that would cause even more controversy! I'm okay with a standard price.

    Yeah, but then some games would be like 2000 points if you think about it.
