Fascination Arcade

Check Out This 1982 News Clip Featuring the Fascination Arcade In Manhattan!

Thanks to the The Museum of Classic Chicago Television’s YouTube channel we can take a quick look at the worldwide phenomenon that Pac-Man was back in 1982. This Independent Network News report also happens to feature not only Ken Uston’s best-selling book “Mastering Pac-Man” but the Author himself.

My favorite thing about this video is the look at the bustling Fascination Arcade during the time when Pac-Man Fever was sweeping the nation. I am very thankful these bits of nostalgia are being saved and shared with all of us video game fans.
