Side goal achieved (even if only for the moment)

First submission December 30th, 2015 - it's been a fun 5 years of competition, and looking forward to more!

    If there is any particular score you would like me to destroy, let me know. I'm currently engaged in thoroughly massacring HCR records, but would be willing to make some time to give you at least one score chasing headache.

    Mine, or someone else's? :)


    Joking aside, I'm not someone who would jealously guard his score on one particular game, or devote the bulk of his gaming effort to hanging onto a WR (as some of the specialists on arcade titles out there do, for instance). Certainly, there are particular scores I'm proud of, and that I believe would be a challenge for someone else to beat, but I've always preferred to be thought of as a well-rounded gamer, rather than a one-trick pony.

    One of yours, of course. Not necessarily one you trreasure. Maybe one you'd like to improve, but can't find the motivation to, because the record's secure. Sometimes you just don't care, until somebody lights a fire under your ass. It's been ages, and I'm still trying to find a reason to put another 90 points on my Pac Man score, and the idiotic concept of "the perfect game" isn't really cutting it. Maybe I'll just do it for the fame & fortune.

    Excellent point, sometimes a fire under your ass is just what the doctor ordered. Honestly, the only games I have on my backlog to return to at some point are things I'm not number one on, like Lock 'n Chase (which you'd probably be great at), Hoccer, Space Invaders, etc. I can think of a couple of games I'd love to see you or anyone else challenge the top dog on like Donkey Kong 3 (hard difficulty), and Zoo Keeper (I have bounties still open for that).


    Speaking of the perfect Pac-Man, I had always wondered whether you were going to come back and finish that one off at some point - it's obvious you can do it, but totally understand the "can I be bothered?" aspect. Does gunning for the fastest perfect game tickle your fancy at all? Now that would REALLY be epic.

    Congratulations Jason.

    The new World MAME ESI No.1, WCE3 World Champion 2019, and in great company with the other Top 100 MAME ESI on the scoreboard. Excellent gaming for almost 5 years. Brilliant!

    Congrats JV! You certainly crept up quietly ;)

    Whats the next goal? 5000? Top overall ESI? I've thought about trying to beat the top Arcade ESI of Dave Nelson's ~4338 but that might require some grinding on games I'd rather not play :D

    Thanks mate! Closing the gap was more of a side-effect from playing the recent MAME tournaments and submitting some older .inps that I had never gotten around to before, rather than a concerted effort or long-term plan. Once I realized I was within 50 points of the summit though, I decided I wanted to get there for at least a day, just to say I had done it at one point...you know, before some superstar Kiwi decided to add another thousand points to his total! :)

    As for what's next, I have a few ideas, but first, I'm thinking a million on DK needs to happen...if I get that, I'll probably shoot for rank C on the DK Masters leaderboard as well - that should keep me busy for at least a little while!

    Hell yeah, if you have access to an arcade, you should absolutely go for the Arcade platform top spot - Barra Mr. Do cab streams incoming! Just make sure to mix in that DK3 D3 WR while you're at it, alright?

    Oh I meant on the MAME leaderboard. No access to arcades here unfortunately!
