Excerpt: For many gamers Soul Calibur is the only Namco classic they're aware of, but us elder gamers remember some of the games that defined a generation. These games -- Pac-Man, Galaga, Dig Dug -- are responsible for breeding a generation of gamers. Many of the people designing (or reviewing, or playing) games today started out with these games in the arcade.
Excerpt: Namco Museum is a collection of golden oldies straight out of the 80’s to your cutting-edge 128-bit console. I’m not sure who buys a Gamecube to play Pole Position but apparently they exist. To them I say ‘more power to you,’ but for the rest of us, who either aren’t interested in 16-kilobyte games or already own them via emulation, there just isn’t a whole lot here to pique a gamer’s interest.
