I want to buy that...

So, what are opinions on ghost? I really have no idea what to believe when it comes to ghost, I supposes I figure they do exist. I say if you can't explain it that doesn't mean it doesn't exist, it just means you simply can't explain it.

Because some random guy on the internet is a reliable source or information. Right?

Well, if it was getting a lot of attention, and possibly money, I would say it haunted too :P

I don't think he's doing it for the money, since he's giving the machine away for free.
And why would you want to be known as the guy that's afraid of Pacman? :P

But the haunting didn't have any impact on gameplay, right? I mean neither of them said you couldn't play Ms. PacMan. Sure furnature might end up on the ceiling and the dog might start speaking in tongues, but come on! Ms. Pac Man! Who wouldn't put up with a bit of poltergeist intrusion for great retro gaming?  ;)

I think that is a great explanation, what I don't get is EMP readings where the ghost "talks". If you watch ghost busters you know what I'm talking about.
