I've seen some posts/comments saying that Billy Mitchell faked his score because he sucks at games. Even if Billy Mitchell is a piece of shit because he faked his Donkey Kong score, his Pac-Man score is real and that's still quite the accomplishment since he was the first person to get a perfect game. Also he's done live plays of games on actual hardware so I think it's at least fair to say he doesn't suck at these games. Billy Mitchell is a fucking loser for faking his Donkey Kong score, but that doesn't mean the guy is bad at games.

I listened to a podcast interview with Billy Mitchell, and he kept saying "the fact of the matter is..." over and over again. Once he said it twice in one sentence. Also his phone kept ringing and he didn't silence it or turn it to vibrate. He had some sort of retro ringtone.

I fell bad for a lot of these old school guys. a high score on an arcade game is such a tiny acomplishment in most peoples minds and this is all they have to hold on to

imagine spending thousands if not tens of thousands of hours of your life dedicated to getting a high score on a video game.

Billy Mitchell is a master, if he faked his score I can empathetize and relate to it but i would not condone it.

I feel sorry for him if this is the case (which it may very well be).

I also feel the same about Todd Rogers.

Trust me, as you get older you feel more useless in society and you feel very tempted to break your own moral code and do things you would never have imagined you would do in your youth.

I still would love to watch him dead screen a game.

Nah man just people are jealous of his success.
I have no doubt that he cheated his way to success but he still was undisputed champion that nobody questioned for 20 years and that makes him a great man in my book.
This is just mob mentality trying to CHANGE the scene while I bet thousands other records are probably also faked and uploaded daily.

Anyone find it absurd that a random arcade in america that was a front for a pedophile ring considered itself to be an authority on hi scores on games made half a world away?

>> No.4567621

Getting the killscreen in Pac-Man is a matter of memorizing the maze route and repeating it hundreds of times. The AI is 100% deterministic, so you can do the exact same route every time and win. In other words, it's a parlor trick, much like the rest of his showmanship bullshit. He actually sucks at videogames.

>while I bet thousands other records are probably also faked
Yes, probably, and the quickest way to show that reality to people is to expose that even the most famous records are faked. It's like the doping scandal in competitive cycling; showing that even Lance Armstrong did it really hammers home the point that the cheating was nearly universal, and required to rise to that level.

Now, since there are hundreds of games that people keep track of WRs for, there are probably some that have a relatively "clean" scene while others will have a glut of fake former records.

>> No.4567671

Then stop, it's a stupid comment. I don't use reddit but I've seen it and posts don't look like that.

>> No.4567674

It does make sense that an arcade of children's games run by old, maladjusted has-beens who are obsessed with controlling their "scene" would also be a pedophile ring. Adults who have control issues and manage to get unlikely jobs involving being around children are the biggest red flag there is. It's the same dynamic as gymnastics coaches for instance.

Bill Bastable got a perfect pac-man on September 2, 1988

Chris Ayra taught Bill Bastable about how to get a perfect pac-man by finding the invisible dots at the split screen.
There are witness from the 80's that claim Chris Ayra was "Actually the First One to get a Perfect Pac Man, At Grand Prix Race 'O' Rama" and that "Chris Ayra is a Better Pac Man Player over all"


"Chris Ayra is better at pac-man than billy"

How would someone even know what reddit spacing is if he never visited the site?
For someone autistily screeching like a sperglord you sure know alot about it.
Maybe you should spent more time there with your fellow degenerate kin.

Billy doesn't suck at games. Ever since that falsehood King of Kong was released, hordes of classic gamers who were embarrassed by Billy (like Roy Shildt) and "normies" who rented the film one night at Blockbuster have hungered for Billy's demise, so they concoct all kinds of bullshit to bring him down.

He might've not been the first to get a perfect Pac-Man, but he was the first to do it under pressure at Fun Spot (the Yankee Stadium of arcades) in front of an audience while being filmed. These other guys making the claim are basically the equivalent of beer league softball players who hit a game winning homerun down at the local park, while Billy did it under the big league bright lights in the World Series. It's documented fact.

And this DK controversy is much to do about nothing. MAME, big deal. Probably plays worse than the arcade version, anyway.
