Namco Museum Megamix is a new compilation of classic video and arcade games. All well and good – companies try to re-release and cash in on their older products in the name of nostalgia all the time. (King’s Quest, anyone?)
Namco is calling this release a “museum.” Maybe they’re trying to give Super Pac-Man a veneer of high culture. Maybe they just wanted to be alliterative.
Maybe they’re doing a very interesting, very creative, very groundbreaking thing and expanding the definition of a museum far beyond what I personally have ever seen before.
What do you think? Is this a museum?
