The King of Kong may be dethroned, but Billy Mitchell still belongs to history

So they can wipe Billy’s name from the record books and vacate his claims, but if there is to be any factual retelling of the history of arcade video games and their high scores, he cannot be excluded. Thursday’s punishment only certified Billy Mitchell as the most famous arcade video game player of all time.

No he doesn't, and neither does Todd Rogers.

O.J. Simpson's guilt comes to mind, and I'm drawing parallels for some reason.

In the doc Billy comes off as a total douchebag so who cares what he did.

I like him for the fact that he looks like a real life villain straight from graphic novel Watchmen claiming to be a friend of Dr. Manhattan while secretly collaborating with Ozymandias.

"But you, Billy, you're just a man. The world's scummiest man poses no more threat to me than does its scummiest termite."
*Billy lifts up his phone*
"What's that? Another ultimate weapon?"
"Old Billy Mitchell always has a plan."
*Pushes button on screen, wires money to Twin Galaxies. Monitors display his new scores at the top of every leader boards.*

I think The King of Kong is a under-appreciated documentary. Whether you love videogames or not, it is such a great story and Billy Mitchell plays the pantomime villain so well.
