If Donkey Kong player Wes Copeland is to be believed, the decades-long battle for the title King of Kong, the best Donkey Kong player in the world, is now over.
Either way, though, Copeland's achievement is to be lauded: On Thursday, he broke the world Donkey Kong score record (which he himself set) with a score of 1,218,000. "This will be my last record score... I don't believe I can put up a game any higher than this," he wrote on Facebook.
This is because Copeland, as you will see if you watch the three-hour, 17-minute video above, had a perfect run of the game. He did not lose a single Mario across the game's 22 levels. If there's a way to get a higher score than that, it has yet to be discovered.
