Well, I was thinking about putting myself into my own Hall of Fame. While I pick everyone else who gets in I decided to leave this one up to the voters. It's hard to judge yourself accurately

I do feel that the main reason I put this up is because I do have narrative. Like going to live events and putting up scores.

Anyways, I'll abide by whatever you choose about me. I'll be bumping this thread up from time to time.  8)

If I get rejected, I'll wait another five years before I ask this question again.

Don't know if I get a vote, but absolutely yes.

For my two cents, you are one of the people who's gameplay I watched repeatedly to learn to excel at my game of choice. I'm sure that others could say the same regarding other games.

As our friends from Down-Under say, you're a fucking Legend mate!

OK, my resume
1) World record holder in Donkey Kong 3 for over 12 years
2) I broke the DK3 arcade record live at two conventions
3) Former Donkey Kong Jr World record holder on MAME. Score was higher than arcade
4) Live Donkey Kong Killscreen.at a Kong Off
5) Current Arm Wrestling record holder on MAME
6) over a 300k score on Moon Patrol
7) Over a 300k score on Pac-Man
8) Over a 280k score on Zaxxon
9) Over 500k on Galaga five man
10) Over 290k on Robotrom 5 man
11) Over 2.6 million on Nibbler
12) Over 50k on Galaxian
13) Over 54k on Ms. Pac-Man
14) 2.6 million on Atari 2600 Galaxian

By all means Brian, show us your resume.  You're pretty good at Space Firebird, and the record holder at Red UFO.
And you have an all time great rivalry with Allen Staal.

Mostly off the top of my head

Yes, eventually. Right now I feel like some others should be there first e.g. Big Benny Falls

Fur sure. Easy YES! Big names, big games. Current champs learned from you.

My instincts said no, but me being an ass when you deserve in,  would be wrong.

I don't understand, you literally suggested that I put myself in three years ago

Here's your quote

"All the bull-shittery aside, why didn't you include yourself?
Undisputed DK3 champ for over a decade. Had the #3 DK Junior score for a time and was #4 for 6 or 7 years or so. Still sitting at #7 but only 10k behind #3"

I really didn't want to respond, but this doesn't make sense. Why did you say that?

Well then, it looks like you aren't going to respond.

So, I'll have to deduce.
1. You obviously changed your mind
2. This is due upon further reflection you decided that Ben Falls is superior to me, and therefore he deserves to get in over me.

Fair enough, but it definitely hurts since you actually play the games I'm good in for the most part and so you have a clue just how difficult my scores are.

I wonder if the fact that you're better in almost all has made you lose sight of the fact just how hard it is to get those scores.  Dude, your not a barely hall of Famer
 You're an all time great. Maybe the greatest to do it

So, you changing your mind like that hurts. It's like a 6 year old me seeing their favorite wrestler turn heel.

The words that came to mind were,

Et tu, Barra?
