Pac-Man is the Highest Grossing Arcade Game of All Time

By   /   Jan 7, 2015

One of the first video games that made their way to the arcade machines was Pac-Man, and this happened way back in 1980. Due to the game’s popularity, it has been played by almost everyone since then.

By 1990, the game managed to make $3.5 billion in quarters, and after adjusting this figure for inflation, this figure will now be $7.7 billion.

In addition to Pac-Man, some other famous games managed to get big bucks since making their way to the arcades a long time ago.

After Pac-Man, we have got Space Invaders which came out in 1978, so there’s no surprise here that it managed to gather a large sum of cash.

The third place title wouldn’t surprise anyone either, as it is Street Fighter II, and almost all of us spend a whole lot of time playing the awesome fighting game that took the genre to a whole new level.

Speaking of fighting games, we surely cannot miss Mortal Kombat, which without any doubt was one of the goriest games in the old days and fans loved spending their time with.
