Fun Friday: Quote of the Day

So there I was, wondering what sort of things women would look for in a videogame. I sat in cafes and listened to what they were talking about; mostly it was fashion and boyfriends. Neither of those was really the stuff of a good videogame. Then they started talking about food--about cakes and sweets and fruit--and it hit me that food and eating would be the thing to concentrate on to get the girls interested.

That's Toru Iwatani, the creator of Pac-Man, on what inspired him to create the game.

(The quote is from Times Online, and was reprinted on page 95 of the Feb. 2006 version of Electronic Gaming Monthly.)
