Hi Caela

I would replace the coffee table in the lounge with one!  Gee, Ms. Pacman is def one of my faves as well.  That would be so awesome and nostalgic for me.

For me, what really makes it nostalgic is the old CRT screen they used (granted, it makes it really bulky, heavy, and not exactly energy-efficient or safe, but for me, that's what really triggers the memories).
It took over 40 years to realise, and believe, that what I am NOT, is a mistake.

Maybe Peach.
Super Mario Bros. 2 was one of the first video games I remember playing and beating all on my own. I would always play as the Princess, because of her floating. I loved how she could float, and it was such a useful ability that nobody could blame me for always playing as the girl.
And in the cartoon show (Super Mario Bros. Super Show), I thought she was cool: kind to her subjects, could put up a fight against baddies... and was really cute.

The Mario series evolved, and Peach's personality has changed, but I still enjoy her. There's just something about her that amuses me.... When she's a damsel in distress, she looks so melodramatic whereas Mario looks serious. And yet, she can put up a fight in Super Smash Bros.. (The more I think of it, it's really dry humor and I love it)
I love playing as her in Super Smash Bros.

@Arctic Kat Hey, Kat, I know this post is a bit old, but you would have a good laugh at this - my two youngest kids are hooked on the old SMB shows (my 5-year old will actually sing 'Do the Mario!' like Lou Albano did, swinging arms from side to side, and everything.  :)  )
