    Ms. Pac-Man is also a notably better game than Pac-Man, because the ghost movements are randomized instead of deterministic – Ms. Pac-Man skill requires adapting to unpredictable opponents whereas perfect Pac-Man skill can be achieved by perfect rote memorization of a (very long) set of fixed moves.

    OK, I’m not sure how that’s directly relevant to feminism, but there’s probably some tortured metaphor we can draw!
