Bally/Midway's big VideoGame success came in 1978 with the popularity of ''VideoGame/SpaceInvaders''; they followed that up by successfully distributing many of {{Namco}}'s arcade games, such as ''{{Galaxian}}'', ''{{Galaga}}'' and ''VideoGame/PacMan''. Their biggest coup was taking a ''Pac-Man'' clone named ''Crazy Otto'' and giving it a graphical conversion to create ''Ms. Pac-Man''. For nearly a decade, Bally/Midway was the leading producer of arcade video games in the United States. They were also the second-most prolific producer of pinball machines, surpassed only by Creator/WilliamsElectronics.
