I think PacMan's greatest influence was not the mechanics of his specific game (Ms. Pac-Man perfected it) but the relationship between a video game and a cartoon character in a video game. Before Pac-Man there wasnt many big mascots for video games that resonated with the larger public. Pac-Man is influencal like the Wii. The Wii had a simple premise that clicked with people not normally into video games and PacMan did the same for arcades by bringing people in to see what else video games could do.
