My qualification to be in the club of good gamers
« on: February 03, 2021, 10:41:34 am »
A huge note.  This is just for fun. So don't take what I say too seriously.

So in order for ANYONE to be in what I call the club of good gamers they need to do just ONE of the following.  Anyone who has done this is in that club.
To be honest, most of the people in this forum are probably already part of the club of good gamers.  It doesn't matter if this has been done on MAME or Arcade.  Both count in my eyes.
Note, there are some games I am not certain about.  So kept them off the list.  There are also rarer games I am certain about since I have experience with them.  So I kept them on the list.

Get a killscreen in Donkey Kong or just getting 850k works as well
Get a killscreen in Donkey Kong Junior or just getting One million works as well.
Getting 2 million on DK3.  It can be on easy settings.
Get 650k on Crazy Kong
Get a million on Centipede
Get 500k on five man Robotron
Get 10 million on Robotron Marathon settings
Get a killscreen on Pac-man or getting 3 million will work
Get a killscreen on Ms. Pac-man or getting 800k will work
Get a million points on Jr. Pac-man
Flip the 256 boards on Galaga with marathon settings.  Getting a killscreen on A or C settings works as well. 3 Million works too.
Having a world record on ANY Arcade game that came out from 1978 to 1985.  So even having a record on a relatively obscure Arcade game from this time period will count.
Get 500k on Moon Patrol
Get 150k on Frogger
Get 100k on Galaxian
Getting a million on Punch-Out
Getting 500k on Super Punch-Out
Getting 500k on Arm Wrestling
Getting 500k on Tube Panic
Getting 10 million on Joust marathon settings
Getting 10 million on Nibbler
Getting 20 million on Zoo Keeper
Getting 10 million on Tapper
Getting 5 million on Timber
Getting 100k on Sky Skipper
Getting 1 million on Mat Mania
Getting 100k on Elevator Action
Getting 250k Pooyan
Getting a million on Mario Bros.
Getting 100k on 10 Yard Fight
Reaching the end of Crystal Castles
Reaching the end of 1942
Getting a million on Excitebike
Getting a million on Yie Ar Kung Fu
Reaching the end of Marble Madness
Getting 100k on Asteroids five man
Getting 100k on Space Invaders
Getting 100k on Super Zaxxon
Getting 100k on Berzerk
Getting a million on Frenzy
Getting a million on Bomb Jack
Getting 200k on Alpine Ski
Getting 66k on Pole Position
Getting 90k on Track and Field
Getting a million on Tron
Getting 10 millionon Q*bert
Getting 5 million on Mr. Do!
Getting 100k on Gorf
Getting a million on Gyruss
Getting a million on Juno First
Getting a million on Popeye
Getting a million on Super Pac-man

It would be interesting to compare folks at the top end of CTS Ratings to see how many of them qualify on these criteria.

Probably, almost all of them.  I mean, even if they only play more obscure games, then they will qualify if they have a record on any game.

For someone ranked 30th in the world for CTS that's a bold statement. :)

Yeah, you got me on that. Truth be told though, you were already on the list for Donkey Kong Junior.  8)

Oh yeah I'm not being serious at all. I luv all your list George. Well I mean I am proud of that caravan score though I had a good clean run. But I really fell dumbass not knowing what these abbreviations mean. Would you enlighten me on what CTS is? I felt really dumb when I found out what marp was. And just recently learned how to do the Cag tournaments without messing up every submission.
I would like to get 2million+ on bombjack it's always been a favorite. And Excitebike I'm really close to being able to marathon it. Then blew up the sound section on mymy PCB BibleThump

Those are just the names people used while they are on MARP.  I have no idea what CTS means.  Probably a person's initials if I had to guess.

Hey, I qualify! With my 251M score on Nibbler! And I had the Avalanche WR at one point. Also if Gilly's counts, I also had the DK Switch Caravan Mode WR at one point too.

Also that 650K limit on Crazy Kong seems a bit high - only eight people have hit that criterion.
DK Scores:
Arcade: 396,700 [L11] (6/29/2018)
MAME: 483,300 [L13-4] (9/23/2021)
Start: 111,000 (11/30/2020)
L1-1: 9,700 (4/29/2014)

Crazy Kong: 581,500 [L22-1 KS] (01/31/2021)
Donkey Kong Jr.: 172,400 [L5-4] (12/23/2020)

your marathon requirement are interesting. you selected well after the point of simply being good enough to marathon and picked some level of endurance as well. how did you decide on what duration level the marathons should have
