Todd Rogers, holder of a 35 year old record in the Atari 2600 racing game Dragster has been stripped of his world record, after months long debate concerning his completion time.
According to Twin Galaxies,
“Based on the complete body of evidence presented in this official dispute thread, Twin Galaxies administrative staff has unanimously decided to remove all of Todd Rogers’ scores as well as ban him from participating in our competitive leaderboards… We have notified Guinness World Records of our decision.”
The Twin Galaxies post goes into a good amount of detail regarding the reasons why the record was removed, and Rogers ultimate banning, and it is certainly worth a read.
Remember kids, winners never cheat and cheaters never win.
