The difference between games and computersby Critical Commons Manager
An automotive version of Pac Man is compared unfavorably to computers by the artificial intellgence agent KITT on Knight Rider: "Playing a video game where circles eat blobs is hardly 'getting into computers.' A computer is a sophisticated, very complicated piece of equipment." Although this car-based version of Pac Man is not a typical "home console," its intrusion on the domestic relationship between Michael Knight and his talking car makes it eligible for Hollywood's characteristic antipathy toward console games.
