    First off, if you haven't seen King of Kong, go watch it. Just stop what you're doing and go watch it, like, right now. It's one of the most entertaining documentaries ever made.

    Now for those who HAVE seen King of Kong, then you know who the fuck Billy Mitchell is. Well, several media outlets are reporting that he may have used an emulator to achieve his highest scores--this is expressly forbidden, you have to use an original, unaltered game board--and some influential sites have already pulled down any scores that weren't achieved in public.

    According to the AV Club:

    Here's a good video that goes in-depth on the story:





    And for anyone who doesn't know what the fuck we're talking about, here's the King of Kong trailer:





    UPDATE: Mitchell's Response:

    *points at tie*

    "T-I-E?"



    Not only does he look like a villain from the 80s, and run a hot sauce company like one -- in his spare time he jobs for 80s era one-liners.

    He is still pretty good

    The thing people are pissed about is that he used MAME and refuses to admit it

    I read about this yesterday.

    Dude, I haven't even heard of Dragster. It's amazing to me that anyone even gives enough of a shit about a game like that to bother lying about it.

    I mean, c'mon bruh, that Dragster street cred must be SWEET and I just don't realize it.

    It is now being reported that the long time Duck Hunt record holder has been disqualified. It turns out that he used a real gun, not the gun controller, and just blasted his television to pieces and then declared himself champion.

    Just another far reaching, baseless attack, to bring down another American hero.

    Just watched this all the way through. Todd Rogers is obviously full of shit. In fact, it's starting to sound like widespread cheating is just rampant in the world of video game record-holding.

    BTW, the dude who puts these videos together is pretty good.
