King of Kong Billy Mitchell Sees His Donkey Kong Record Stripped

Quote:
More drama is unfolding in the ultra-competitive retro arcade gaming scene, and yes, that is a thing. Billy Mitchell, the arcade legend who appeared as a central character opposite Steve Wiebe in the documentary The King of Kong: A Fistful of Quarters, has been accused of cheating his way into the record books for high scores in Donkey Kong. As a result, he's now been stripped of his 1.062 million score on the Donkey Kong Forums.

Let's go back a bit to understand how it got to this point. Mitchell was the first person to crack 1 million points in Donkey Kong, and for a time, he and Wiebe leapfrogged each other for the top spot. That was more than a decade ago.
