    That was a very informative and fun read. I think the takeaway point from this article is the importance of the mascot. PAC-MAN, Donkey Kong, and Mario are still here today, while the other games (although successful at one point) have faded away somewhat. As you said, even Frogger (no way near as popular as PAC-MAN, DK, or Mario but a mascot nonetheless) became the basis for a pop song.
