Back in the early press of video game "professionals" they were just some kids who played a lot of video games at arcades and got attention for it because they were the only ones to take it that seriously.

There was an interesting incident though back in this time when Life magazine did a feature on these kids and for their profiles asked them to list their achievements. One of them actually made up a score (over 3 million in Joust or something) not really thinking about it and just to make themselves look impressive and I think this is the mindset behind many of Todd Rogers's scores.

Funnily enough it was Billy Mitchell himself who knew that this guy's Joust score was bullshit and challenged him, the guy of course fell way far off the impossible 3mil but Billy beat his score by a significant margin in front of everyone at the arcade.

Only that term is new. The game is old.
