When they said all records, they mean all records. Guinness no longer recognizes Billy as the 1st person to get a perfect Pac-Man game. :(

Re: Star wars the last jedi spoilers ahead.

JJ Abrams was listed as an executive producer; I'm fairly sure he could nix decisions like that in pre-production.

Re: Can video games be adapted into good movies

Never say never. I'll agree it's hard; a good game focuses on interactive elements; a good movie focuses on story, but I'll never say it's impossible. They said Gone With the Wind could never be adapted, but it's still the most successful film of all time, if you adjust for inflation. The Wizard of ...

Re: Retro Gaming Art

If game graphics have exceeded anything you could draw, the ads should better, not worse. Creativity trumps graphics, every time.

Billy Mitchell's Scores Removed, Including Donkey Kong
