King of Wrong: Deconstructing Billy Mitchell

Scholarly Gamers' Patrick Scott Patterson writes: "Perhaps Billy Mitchell's greatest stake to fame is being the first to reach a Perfect Pac-Man score of 3,333,360 in 1999.

He plays a good villian in the film and when he sent in his score for Donkey Kong and not playing live with anyone to verify the score I knew he couldn't be trusted.

This guy was always a Douchebag. Now he has been caught, and he needs to own it.

People like him don't own up to things, they just blame it on others or some other excuse.

I think Billy Mitchell proved that some of the people in the infamous Life Magazine photo from 1982 submitted fake scores by playing against them . But not sure.

Just the way he poses with his suit, the ladies and the pac-man plaque makes him look like a villain from a frank miller graphic novel ;)).

Quite enjoyed The King of Kong.
