Competitive Gamer Billy Mitchell Responds To His High Scores Getting Removed

17 April 2018

Since Twin Galaxies only accepts records set on original games that have not been altered in any way, it banned Mitchell from competition, and the decision subsequently invalidated his standing with the Guinness World Records, which relies on Galaxies to verify video game world records.

Last week, Twin Galaxies and the Guinness Book of World Records stripped Donkey Kong record holder Billy Mitchell of his high scores.

Speaking to Old School Gamer Magazine at the Midwest Gaming Classic, Mitchell states he is working on bringing forward his own case for why his records should still stand.

Last week, Twin Galaxies, the organisation that referees classic arcade scores, announced they had determined some of Mitchell's records were not attained on actual arcade machines but by using the Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator (MAME), or software which replicates the games - a violation of Twin Galaxies's rules. 'All the things that were happening at the time... like why he didn't come out and play me, and why he was inciting whose records were going to be authenticated and who's were going to be dropped. Mitchell claims his process is "true, professional due diligence" as opposed to Twin Galaxies' "shock jock mentality designed to create hits". We will show that everything that has been done, everything was done professionally.

He describes Twin Galaxies as a "2014 regime that wants to reach back 35 years", and insinuates that its investigation was ginned up to generate publicity. Everything will be transparent. I wish I had it in my hands right now, I wish I could hand it to you. An investigation was launched into the video footage taken of each of the high scoring games. Nothing will be withheld. "We've been at this since 1982, and it's not gonna stop now".

"Donkey Kong scandal" is just the sort of colourful event one might experience in 2018, specifically, one Billy Mitchell, heretofore known in gaming circles as the "video game player of the century".
