The stream seems to have expired, so I'm gonna assume that was MAME, but there it is!

We're getting close to three digits here, but the rate is slowing.

Will 2018 be the year we reach 100 killscreeners?

It was not MAME. It was on a candy cab in an arcade, US Set 1.

Added a few new names that were missing, and also removed Ike Hall. Based on some new information from Jeremy, I was made aware that his 2009 game actually ended on 21-6.

Here is an interview from the Classic Gaming Expo 2004, the event where Steve and Billy met and played against each other.


The relevant segment is from 10:08 to around 14:30. There's a lot of interruptions and asides, but if you listen through that whole segment, Steve makes the following claims:

- He had a DK cab in his dorm in college.
- He was scoring in the 900,000s and sold the machine (he mentions the year "1990") because after encountering the killscreen multiple times, he didn't feel like there was any point in continuing.
- Years after he sold the machine, he was curious what the high score was, so he looked on the Internet as he says "about 5 years ago" (which, from the date of this interview, would be 1999) and saw the world record score. Which, at the time, was Billy's.
- Knowing that he was capable of beating Billy's score, Steve bought another machine at some point thereafter.

So, in order to doubt these claims, I would have to assume that Steve was concocting this entire story, or elements of it, out of thin air.

In order to come to that conclusion, I would need to postulate a motive for doing so. Considering that Steve was already known to be a 900K+ player by the time of this interview, I'm having a hard time imagining what that motive would be.

But I strongly suspect that the motive was not to put a fictional backstory in place for Steve, on the off chance that, one year later, a film crew would want to start shooting a documentary about his rivalry with Billy.

If Steve was capable of breaking a million in the game in 1999 and knew about TG, then why didn't he take the $10000 offered on the game for doing so. $1000 was offered for beating 874k on DK in late 1999. Don't tell me there's no motive there. Where was Steve and his easy 900k games at the time?
So he was a 900k player dating back to the late 80's BUT didn't know about TG until 1999? Then why did I beat him to that 1982 score in august of 2000 even though he was supposedly playing at the same time I was and was an easy 900k player? but yet in one year could not break 874,300? I did.

Sorry, your first kill screen should be your first documented and proven official one. Steve is the only KS listed that is not provable.

With George's kill screen, the number of kill screeners is now at 99. I've been waiting for years to see 100 kill screeners. I've even wondered if we would ever reach that milestone. So who's going to be our 100th kill screener?                                    Edit: I just saw that David Lyne wasnt yet put on the ks list. Therefore, is George the 100th?

Or it's Dave Clark who got a killscreen on the second day of the Kong Off, and is listed on the list.

Also congrats George!  Awesome, awesome achievement to do it live at the KO, can't ask for much more.

I wanna update this list, but does anyone have a date for Dave Clark's first KS? The KO6 one was not his first.

In any case, yeah, these three additions will push it over 100!

I'll remind everybody though that there are almost certainly a number of killscreeners that we don't know about, from the quiet Dave Clark-types, so take that "100" with a grain of salt. Far less likely that there are any million players missing from the million list (one or two max?), but who knows.

Motive for doing so?! He was paid thousands for that "concocted" film and took credit for the main narraitive it was based on which I did 3 years BEFORE him. There's  your motive. If Steve was a 900k player in the late 80's then why did he not beat Billy's 874k prior to 8/16/00?
Better yet why did he not claim the $1000 bounty billy put on that WR in late 99?
