"Pac-Man is perhaps the most tragic father in gaming. He is, in many ways, the first father of videogames. While other fathers are out causing worldwide cataclysms or locking their sons in towers, Pac-Man is busy abusing himself. He's a drug addict. That's all we've ever known him to be. He stumbles around a maze downing pills and neglecting his newborn son as well as his wife (also a major pill-popper). He meets a nice girl, chases her around a bit, convincers her to marry him. Then he gets her addicted on the junk. Worse, the two druggies have a kid, Pac-Man Jr., who also becomes an addict. You can lament the grandiose videogame tales of fathers doing extraordinary (and impossible) things all you want, but there is no greater failure than the true-to-life tale of Pac-Man." - IGN (Gaming's Worst Fathers)

Don't know about the worst father being Pac-Man, but I do know that Shaft is the baddest mother of them all.
