Pac Man Fever
Matt Casamassina of IGN gave the GameCube version a 4.9/10 and the PlayStation 2 version a 4.5/10. While he praised the sound, he criticized the gameplay and graphics. Ryan Davis of GameSpot gave both versions of the game a 5.2/10, disliking the lack of variety in the minigames and the slow pace on the boards. 1UP.com called the mini-games lacking in "creative interactivity", concluding: "the only 'fever' I experienced was a spasm brought on by my boredom." GamePro called it "a dismal showing" and a "shameless Mario Party rip-off" devoid of "even a hint of fun multiplayer competition," and Electronic Gaming Monthly called it "a snore-fest".

If pushed far enough, it can lead to Schizo Tech. Not to be confused with the Nintendo GameCube game of the same name or an obsession about a certain Filipino boxer.

Web Videos In one lonelygirl15 video, the hopelessly geeky nerd is giving all the "regular" characters training. For the Playful Hacker who is the only one who finds him Beautiful All Along, it is revealed that her training is in... Frogger and Centipede. At first she's baffled as to why her training consists of video games, but as he's a Trickster Mentor, this is shown to be just what they needed to give them the edge. Playing is done by holding a Jakks Pacific TV Game, a self-contained AA battery-powered device with only composite inputs for televisions, up in front of a (shown from behind) laptop and saying "Look out for the ghost! Turn right! Oh my god!" The Irate Gamer shows a severe case of the fever. Any time he's shown using his controller he's Button Mashing or swinging it around like he's dancing. This is notably bad when he uses an NES controller for games that are obviously not NES titles. This is especially bad when he mashes buttons to games such as Mario Is Missing! and Tetris. The Third Rate Gamer parodies this; in addition to Button Mashing, the controller is always wrong (i.e. using a PS1 controller for a SNES game), and sometimes not even a controller at all (i.e. a pair of headphones or the case for the DS version of Final Fantasy III). At the beginning of the TGWTG Year One Brawl, when The Nostalgia Critic notices The Angry Video Game Nerd, the Nerd is playing on a Nintendo DS, with background music from Mario, and sound effects from Pac-Man and Sonic the Hedgehog. Given that "he's the Angry Nintendo Nerd" and "the Angry Atari/Sega Nerd"... In The Nostalgia Critic's review of The Princess Diaries 2, Hyper Fangirl distracts the Critic with a WWE game downloaded on the Playstation 3. The title screen shown is from the Game Boy Color version of WWF Wrestlemania 2000 and the music and sound effects are from the arcade game WWF Wrestlefest. Invoked in a episode of ENN, where Jeremy Petter interviews a representative of Atari. When the rep shows him a commercial for The Witcher 2, it shows Paul holding a keyboard like he's playing Frets on Fire while playing a RPG. In The Angry Video Game Nerd's review of Winter Games, he outright mentions this trope. The controls were so frustrating and unresponsive that he says the only way to actually win is to just randomly push buttons and hope something good happens. He then jokes that any time you see characters in a movie mashing buttons and pretending to play a video game, they're not pretending, they're playing Winter Games. In the Australian web mini-series "#GameOn", "Star Warriors" is shown as a generic 3D space shooter, but when Joel turns off the PC he's playing it on, it shows a "SHIELD BEARER 9 HAS LEFT THE GAME" message over the game's background as opposed to simply turning the monitor off. Discussed and spoofed in this TikTok, claiming that occurrences of this trope in movies is the result of out of touch middle aged writers knowledge when it comes to video games.
Pac-Man, the computer creature happily eating his way across video screens from Maine to California, may have been born with a silver spoon in his mouth. With businessmen and kids pumping quarter after quarter into him, he became one of the most popular machines in the multibillion-dollar-a-year computer game industry. Yet in the midst of all this ''Pac-Man fever,'' some parents and city officials have become less than enchanted with the critter's eating habits. 59ce067264
