The Untold Truth Of Gaming's Biggest Cheater

If you're new, Subscribe! →

Forget about Bowser: right now, the biggest villain in video games is Billy Mitchell. For over 30 years, he was one of the most prominent gamers in the world, holding high score records on classic arcade titles like Donkey Kong, Burger Time, and Ms. Pac-Man. On April 12, 2018, however, all that came crashing to an end. Twin Galaxies, the organization that crowned Mitchell as the king of arcade games back in the '80s, determined that three of his world-record scores have been falsified. That might seem like a simple outcome, but the real story behind Mitchell's rise and fall is a maze with more turns than Pac-Man. From bitter rivalries to a lawsuit against a cartoon, here's the story behind Billy Mitchell...

    "I'm not God" he says, as though anybody had questioned that

  • Can't

    Does anyone remember the Regular Show episode with him in it lol

  • Craig Johnson

    When I was about 10 or 11 I almost beat the official world record (that was in the Atari magazine my dad bought) for asteroids on my Atari console. I say almost...the version I had zeroed the score at 100000 so I was just clocking the 100000's all afternoon as easy as anything then that dreaded voice calls 'tea's ready'...I don't recall what the WR was or my actual score was but do remember knowing I only had a few more 100000's to go before beating it. Unfortunately, after ignoring several calls to come down from my room my dad came up and pulled the plug. Maybe better that way as I doubt anyone would believe me if I actually had beat the record.I played it again a few years ago thinking it was easy and it was bloody impossible. If you want records set get a 10 year old mildly autistic and exceptionally bright kid like I was to do it. It's so easy at that age.

  • Mai Kush

  • Reaper

    Meh, I found an exploit on one of the Feeding Frenzy games.Just thought I'd share this. :DLet's just say it involves a level with 2 barracudas, one of them are fake in the sense that their tail behaves differently when bitten.Differently as in, you can bite the tail infinitely at the speed of milliseconds over and over again, until the REAL barracuda with the normal tail starts chasing you down.You must move ever-so-slowly to keep the chain going as any fast movement would dislocate you from the sweet-spot.It's even possible to eat the massive false barracuda in that level if you chained it for long enough.It ended in an insane highscore and amount of lives.
