Pac-Man Is the 2020 Character Hall of Fame Inductee!
We have big news: The Comic-Con Museum is thrilled to announce PAC-MAN™ as the second inductee into the Museum's Character Hall of Fame! With his introduction in 1980, PAC-MAN™ has made a profound impact on the video game industry and popular culture as a whole.
For an entire generation, PAC-MAN™ ignited a love of video and arcade games. Those of us who were there for the start of PAC-MAN™ remember going to the arcade and lining up for a chance to play while our friends stood around and cheered on. We were able to connect with PAC-MAN™ on an emotional level in a way we hadn’t with other video game characters.
As we reflect on 40 years of PAC-MAN™ we are grateful for his contributions to popular culture, for the many decades of fun he has provided to us all, and we look forward to what he will bring us in the future.
Please join us as we celebrate PAC-MAN™ and his many accomplishments during the Virtual Induction Ceremony on December 17, 2020.
