Hm, interesting. I never would have thought that Pac-Man was an early attempt to draw females into the gaming market. It's mildly amusing that the creator thought bringing girls in would make the arcades suddenly become cleaner.

As for the attraction to female gamers, I had a feeling (or heard somewhere before) that it was to bring in girls, though I could be wrong.

I had a feeling each ghost had different AI because I noticed one time when I played all ghosts were acting differently when I stayed still in one spot.

As for the other three facts, I had no idea. I wonder how that shelter would have acted.

Actually I learned the first 3 facts from an interview from Pacman World 3 before I checked out the article, but I was surprised by the other 2 facts. I'm glad all the ghosts aren't red, the game wouldn't be as colorful as it is, it'd just be Pacman and 4 Blinkys moving around a maze.

Hey, hey, hey, anything that draws girls in is a good thing in my book. Yes, Yes, Yes.

All red ghosts would be boring.
