What we can do is make comparisons using accomplishments we've actually achieved. They're a much more accurate measure, but keep in mind mileage will vary;

DK KS ~ 1m Galaga
DK 1m ~ Galaga KS
Marathon or Five man?

Hm probably 1m 5man and marathon ks

5 man ks could be like DK 1.1 but haven't got the latter so....

As far as Wes.  Yes, you have a point about neither of us having 1.1 million, and none of us truly know because neither has reached the mountain top we are arguing about.  Still, lest I remind you, you have said in the past that 1.3 million on Donkey Kong Junior is equivalent to 1.1 million on Donkey Kong despite never having hit 1.3 million on Donkey Kong Junior.

I appreciate your attempt at ad hominem, but it doesn't really change anything.

Ok, you got me, that was bad form for an argument.  I should have added, "so why the change of heart?" 
Then, I'm fleshing out your thought process, and I get a better understanding where you're coming from. My bad.

What's interesting is neither one of you have a 1.1m Donkey Kong score, yet are making sweeping statements about your perceived difficulty of said score.

My high DK score is only in the 700's but I have a very good idea of what it takes to score 1.1 million on DK. I believe Chris and George both have the same understanding. We have been actively watching and following you elite DK players for years, we know what it takes.

I think the 66k on PP and 4.5m on dig dug are a little light. I'd say you'd have to kick PP up to 66.5k and dig dug up to 5m+

602,130 on Vanguard is the absolute equivalent of 1,102,100 on DK.  This is factual when you take into account the fact that both have vertical monitors and some type of arcade music that plays.

When the scores happened matters. If I ever get 1.1 itís because I got a crazy head start with strats others developed/discovered. Not that I will, but you get the idea.

A 5 minute smb run would have been amazing in 1988, not so much now.
