Whenever you feel down, or feel like a loser, remember that you were once the fastest sperm to make it to the woman egg. The other sperms were probably like:"Holy shit mates, this guy is fast as hell fttttt how does he knows. This guy is a winner, it wouldnt surprise me if he reaches the dk3 blue screen or something. Wait and see!"

If you feel like a loser now wait until your dk3 records have been beaten

You do realize that McCurdy is one huge game away from busting your record?  Odds are your record gets busted way before mine.

To be honest Robbie, I figured that you didn't have a lot of time on your hands.  I don't doubt the skill.  I just doubt the time you have.

Weird thread.  Kind of like it was said,

1.  Start thread bemoaning Loser status
2.  Someone intimates said poster is Loser (and even not really)
3.  Loser's Panties all twisted in a wad.

Am I missing something here, GRiley?

Again, it's not because of any thing to being a loser.  I would have obviously agreed to that.  It's being a one trick pony I had a problem with
You see I could hold the World records in Donkey Kong, Galaga, Galaxian, and Ms. Pac Man, and I would still consider myself a loser.
In real life I'm still a dude that desperately wanted to get married, have kids, and a 9 to 5 job.
Since I failed in my major life goals, I therefore am a loser in life.
Classic gaming is just a diversion to this.  In classic gaming, the fake world things are more in my control.  In this world I can pretend I am a winner.
So when someone attacks my fake world, it tics me off more than when someone attacks my real world.  I've given up hope for the real world, but in the fake world, I am building a castle full of scores that will take a very long time to complete.
Edit
I call classic high score gaming the fake world because it's of very little consequence to the world at large.

I saw the thread title and I immediately knew this was a George Riley thread.

I have zero arcade world records. But I know that I'm better than average at Star Castle, Space Fury and Sinistar. I enjoy competing in arcade tournaments (even though I'm no major threat) to see how I stack up against others on various titles and I enjoy the environment. Heck, qualifying for the finals at ReplayFX this year was fun despite knowing that it wouldn't've been possible had some of you guys shown up.

Now I'm rusty at arcade games cuz I've been devoting my time to pinball the last year-and-a-half. I'm just an average pinball player - my world ranking and tournament results support that. However, I did manage to place the top score on Ghostbusters this year at PAPA and I've won trophies and cash at local league and tournaments.

None of that makes me feel like a winner or loser. I'm just having fun.

In real life I'm still a dude that desperately wanted to get married, have kids, and a 9 to 5 job.

And what have you done to change that?

The best thing that ever happened to me was getting fired from a factory job over 20 years ago. It gave me the opportunity to go to college full-time and get an Associates Degree. I busted my ass, Dean's List, won a scholarship, graduated with honors and I got a job because of it.

I met a girl at college. I got her a job at where I worked and a short while later we got married. Today I have a modest house, a decent car, a small home arcade, two great looking kids and a career.

Since I failed in my major life goals, I therefore am a loser in life.

With that attitude you've pretty much just thrown in the towel and accept the status quo. Figure out where you want to be and how to get there.

Maybe you should start smoking weed. Serious. I can solve the world's problems when high.

Look, I don't understand the nuances of social conversation.  I am bad at the nuances of romance as well.
