"How about some credit where credit is due, and not rewriting history

Shigeo Funaki did the code and Toshio Kai the music.  Nakamura was
simply the man behind the company, not the father of Pac-Man."

I agree that his company created Pac-Man and in a corporatized world,
then as is now, the owner(s) get the credit; i.e., Jobs of Apple, etc.
And "rewriting history willynilly"; as an historian I definately try
not doing that.

Happy computing.
