According to a new survey, the original Pac-Man is the most fondly remember arcade game in video gaming history.

The new survey was conducted by KontrolFreak to promote their new brand of arcade sticks.

Pac-Man walked away with a full 80% of the vote. It’s unknown whether participants were asked to choose a favorite game from a set list of options or if they had to name their favorite off the top of their head. Which would likely skew the results considerably.

It’s also unknown whether these were common, everyday people or if they were actually active video gamers. Which, again, would almost certainly skew these results wildly.

Here is the full list of the ten most popular:
-Donkey Kong
-Space Invaders
-Ms. Pac-Man
-Mortal Kombat
