Doesn't matter what system, pick assuming it's the best version of each game (or best version in your opinion).

I pick Ms. Pacman on the Genesis. I like it more than other versions as it has an ending.

Ms. Pac-Man on Commodore 64.  Of all the early 80s home versions, this one is closest to the arcade.  A fine port.

I despise all of pac-man except for Snack-Attack and Microwave, both on the Apple II.

to a lesser extent I enjoy the VCS version. I kid you not. Me and my buddies would take turns clearing 1/2 of the board.

I enjoy all the arcade games provided they run the Turbo chip (except Baby Pac-Man where I don't believe Turbo was ever made).

 

Worst Pac-Man of all time is the original Pac-Man released for the VCS - absolutely dreadful.

I like Jr. Pac-Man the best.  It's fun, unique and hard.  I like the Atari 8-bit version and the arcade version a ton.

Ms. Pac for me. Excellent upgrade to an already excellent game.

I voted Ms. Pacman... it's never disappointed me.  It was also my first arcade gaming experience.  A cocktail cabinet at Barleycorn's in Northern KY.  Sometime in the early-to-mid '80s.  I think it ended up a few miles up Dixie Hwy at "SubStation II" decades later

 

Because of that love, I've fed a lot of quarters into Ms. Pac-Man machines over the years.

Actually, I believe I like the isometric Pacmania with the jumps more than the classic 2D Pac-Man versions.

The original Arcade version, the one that started it all. Can't beat an original.

Does PMP Pacman Collection (7800) count? :P

 

For period releases, I'll have to go with the Tengen port of Ms Pacman for NES.

Can't beat Ms. Pacman arcade. I always love seeing the Ms. Pacman/Galaga cabinets at bowling alleys and such.

 

I also like Pacman Championship DX. The intense speed of it makes it really fun. It feels like Pacman on drugs.

I liked Pacman for many years, but after I played Ms Pacman I found this one more polished and challenging.

I don't recall ever playing Pac-man in the arcade.  It was always Ms. Pac-man and Super Pac-man.

I was playing the 8k Pacman v3 earlier tonight. So arcadey it's unreal. Now I wanna change my vote from Ms Pacman to Pacman, but I can't... :sad:

 

So add one to Pacman, take off one for Ms Pac. But they are both awesome...

I think Pac-Man Arrangement is the best, I love it on the Pac-Man Collection on GBA.

It was hard choosing for me between Pac-Man for the VCS and Super Pac-Man for the arcade, but I chose "Other" and went with Super Pac-Man.  That's the game I've been able to get the farthest in!  I do like, however, how VCS-Pac-Man sounds like he says, "F*ck you ups" as he eats the nasty ghosts...big lebowski style.
