Competitive Gamer Billy Mitchell Responds To His World Records Being Stripped Off

Competitive Gamer Billy Mitchell Responds To His World Records Being Stripped Off

Last week, Twin Galaxies announced that it would strike Billy Mitchell's high scores in games like Donkey Kong, Donkey Kong Jr.

Several of Mitchell's high scores were disputed earlier this year by a forum poster claiming he used an emulator to record his scores, rather than a standard arcade cabinet. Twin Galaxies is the organization that officially tracks high scores and rankings, and submits relevant information to Guinness World Records. We'll see hopefully see if what he has is enough to prove his scores are legitimate soon, so stay tuned.

But on Friday, Guinness World Records acted in accordance with Twin Galaxies' ruling by scrubbing Mitchell's records with the organization, according to the gaming site Kotaku. And for a long time, he held an officially recognized high score of 1,062,8000 points. "Twin Galaxies was the original source of verification for these record titles and in line with their decision to remove all of Mr. Mitchell's records from their system, we have disqualified Mr. Mitchell as the holder of these two records". The documentary also focused on Mitchell's video submissions and the speculation that at least one of the tapes he sent to Twin Galaxies was fraudulent. Mitchell, wearing the tie that will forever make him a hero in my eyes, speaks of an investigation underway to clear his name and restore his legacy as one of the highest scoring arcade gamers of all time. The more damning implication is that Mitchell-previously credited with being the first to score a flawless game on Pac-Man and the first to crack 1 million points on Donkey Kong-faked his games.

The Donkey Kong champ - whose rivalry with Redmond, Wash. schoolteacher Steve Wiebe was documented in the 2007 release King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters - is embroiled in scandal.

"The fact of the matter is, now there is a true professional due diligence being done to investigate things that happened as far as 35 years ago in a professional manner, not in a shock-jock mentality designed to create hits", Mitchell said.
