Tim McVey’s world record attempt is currently underway and is being streamed live.
He started playing at 8:33am CST on Friday, and needs to score higher than 1,004,328,140 for the record.
Update: His final score was 945,939,420. Tim didn’t beat the record, but congratulations are still in order for the grueling attempt.
It may sound dull, but the stream was absolutely fascinating to watch. In addition to the rapid pace of late game, there was the drama of those in the background (including a tense moment when the dog went nuts), Tim’s curses and sighs of relief, and the comments of the several hundred spectators in chat.
I’ll be keeping an eye out for more of these record-attempting streams in the future. If you hear of any, please let me know!Filed under arcade, community, nostalgia, video games | Comments (2)
