A great reason to be decent at a lot of Arcade/ MAME games
« on: August 03, 2019, 08:11:20 pm »
When you become decent at a lot of games you get a better understanding of how great a high score is on these games.
It sort of gives you an appreciation for that person's score that you normally wouldn't have.
 So as I have branched out feel that my understanding is better.
Recently I got 26k in Elevator Action.  Not a great score by any stretch of the imagination, but my understanding of how difficult 150k is, is greatly increased.  It's basically all out warfare for the last seven floors for every building.

Long haul trucking didn't really allow it.

Oh, ok, I just asked because it was one of the games in the tournament. 26,000 would have put in 25th out of 43 entries.
