The first Google Doodle you can actually play celebrates the 30th anniversary of one of America's first video game icons.

Pac-Man was launched on May 22, 1980 in Japan. In October of that same year, it came to America and was an instant hit -- America's first blockbuster mainstream videogame.
Hard to believe that was 30 years ago.
