    I think you are a great player. Unfortunately I believe you've been sidetracked on getting a ton of "world records." You decided to go with quantity over quality. I really believe you'd be better served if you would just forget about trying to get as many records as possible, and just focused on 100 or less games, and just constantly tried to improve on those scores. Many of your records you are the only person. Like I said, I know you have great talent, I just think you have gotten side tracked on what really matters.

    By the way, if I didn't think you had great talent I wouldn't even mention this. I just think you are too good of a player to go for the thousands of records method.

    I already have my 100 Top world records here, I don't have have to proof anyone my skills. Feel free to break my Crazy Taxi or Wacky Races record from 2001 Summer championship or any of my RPG or Speedrun records. Today, my work and my family are priority to me (for you and everybody here, I believe) and to play hours and hours a same game is not easy, sometimes I have to stop a record attempt because of my work, at night my family waits for me. Look, I am Twin Galaxies player since 1999, I played old and modern consoles, even the arcade games, today I am not the same Rodrigo Lopes player from 20 years ago, this new 2018 Rodrigo have many others responsabilies, the videogame come in 2nd place and my current "quantity" of world records is my fun at the work. My "quantity" of world records push you and many other players to submit new scores, this is fun. I hope to see you break a single score of my "quality" record.

    Many players become "Legend" of one or two scores, they don't play with anybody, they don't submit scores for nothing with fear to lose for unknown players, did you saw Billy Mitchell playing videogame with someone today or someday? No, of course, he did 4 or 5 scores and become a Legendary Player, because he looks like a invincible player? No, trust me, you can win him easily in almost all games released.

    I've already beaten a score of yours Rodrigo. Check out Arm Wrestling. You had the world record at one time with 283k. I now have the score at 605k. Your 283k Arm Wrestling score is actually a pretty good score though. It's probably in the top 10% of scores for you despite the fact that you are in 4th place. I respect that score WAY MORE than many of your records.

    Also, try not to take what I say as criticism, but more as advice. I considered you a great gamer way before you went hardcore after the world record count. If that's what you want to do, then fine by me. I remember a time when you had your record count in the hundreds instead of the thousands, and being impressed with a lot of your scores. Think of your time as money. You can go into a comic book shop, and spend money on dollar comics, and claim a huge collection of 3000 comics, or you could go into the shop, and buy some of the more desirable comics for $25 a pop, or maybe even pay $1,000 for a comic book.

    Impressive, Rodrigo!
    I hope to see more impressive scores in the future.
    It's not easy to beat Rodrigo's records. Even if the are quick ones for most world records.

    A simple thought... I think the best criticism of someone's record or records on TG is to beat them. :)

    Guy is a hundred percent correct. I am going after a lot of his candy crush records. I had meningitis in college and my doctors thought that the pattern recognition might help rewire my brain after the fever, so they got me hooked on the game. Part of the game is luck in getting a favorable board, but there is also a lot of skill involved in being able to recognize when you got a favorable board, so while a lot of his records are fast, they are not easy. His angry birds records, I cant even begin to touch. trust me, Ive tried.

    We were considering getting rid of ESI but wanted to wait until just after Rodrigo hit 5000...

    I channeled my ESP ability and knew yesterday, that you were going to write this post. 🤔
