For the sixth time in history, a new Pac-Man world record has been achieved. Since Billy Mitchell achieved the perfect score on Namco’s classic title ten years ago, four other gamers have stepped up to the plate and earned the title of “Fastest Pac-Man High Score Getting Dude”.
Well, now Ohio native David Race has the honor of being the fastest gamer to complete a perfect score in Pac-Man.
Clocking in at 3 hours, 41 minutes, and 22 seconds, Race was cutting it fine, slicing only 42 seconds off the previous record held by Chris Ayra.
For those not versed in Pac-Man world record attempts, in order to achieve a perfect score (3,333,360 points) the player must eat every dot, bonus fruit, and blue ghost possible before the game crashes at the 256th level.
