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.

Tetris the Grand Master 3: Terror Instinct

Getting the Grand Master Grade (GM) in the game is rediculous. In earlier TGM games you had to meet certain score and time criteria to reach the GM grade but they took it to another level in this game. Here's an explaination of how to get the GM grade in Tetris the Grand Master 3: Terror Instinct:

"If the player exhausts the potential of all three grade systems (by reaching an S9 internal grade, attaining all nine Section COOLs, and earning at least six grade points in the invisible roll), the player will still only be awarded MasterM. The GrandMaster grade can only be first awarded through a Promotional Exam. Given the requirements to receive an exam, the player's best four performances in their last seven games must all be GrandMaster-worthy. Finally, in addition to clearing enough lines in the staff roll to get GrandMaster, the player must also survive it to pass the exam.

It is not necessary to be currently qualified MasterM in order to receive a GrandMaster promotion.

Once the player has a qualified class of GrandMaster, then the grade can be awarded in normal play, rather than being 'invisibly' converted down to MasterM. However, if the player is later demoted from GrandMaster, they must receive and pass a Promotional Exam again to return to receiving GrandMaster grades."


In order to get GM you have to have 4 games, out of your last 7, that are GM worthy meaning being stupidly fast. Score a lot of points and clearing the invisible tetris section during the credits. This opens up for you exam and you have to do this crazy feat once more to obtain the GM rank.

Only 6 people have done this and only 1 of those are non-japanese.

To be honest, what you described comes off more as a 1.2 million Donkey Kong score for Tetris Grandmaster 3

90 life ROM freeze on Frenzy before 500,000
60,000 on fast bullets Berzerk
250,000 on Crazy Climber
Perfect score on Ms Pac Man after Level 6
Passing any invisible, reverse gravity level on Gravitar

Berzerk (Fast Bullets) = 58,780
Berzerk (Slow Bullets) = 195,000
Frenzy = 1,006,802
