No, Pac man was not the first video game. It was the first of its kind, however. Games before this depended wholly on aiming and shooting, with various effects when the target was hit.

Pac-man escaping from ghosts who became faster and more numerous as the game proceeded avoided any shooting. Pac-man died when ghosts touched him and consumed him. It's still played as a retrospective or retro activity.
