Default Ms. Pacman

So my parents bought a Ms. Pacman table. Apparently it used to be in bars all of the time. Has anyone else seen them before, or are my parents just crazy?
It looks like this:

Edit: I hopefully fixed the link

The link isn't working, but table-top arcade games (particularly the pacmans) were pretty standard fare for a while. Makes me think of being little, and going to a fish and chips shop, actually. Weird.

If they were really hard core, they'd have a Pacman table that was board hacked to run Ms. Pacman...

You know you're getting older if you remember people doing that. =P

You're not old unless you remember playing Pong on a table like that on BC Ferries. It's cool, my sister would raid your house if she saw this thread.

You too eh Sugar? I remember all those trips to the island and to Powel River as a kid. The best part was seeing if the wind would knock me over or keep me up as I leaned into it.
