Honestly, who doesn't like Pacman?!?

Would love to know what those projects consisted of and how you built them. Do you have websites with the machines on them ? What sort of displays were used etc ? Pacman is so simple a 5 year old can play it, yet tough enough after a few levels for the most experienced of gamers to get their skills going. The mix of playability and instant hands on fun went missing from the late 80's...due i think to increases in computer power. We didn't need to work with what we had, could make something that looked better and that meant gameplay suffered. Same goes for movies in my opinion...there's some stunningly good stories played out in black and white films..simply because they couldn't rely on special effects.
