United States

At the Donkey Kong Online Open on 17-18 September 2015, legendary Donkey Kong player Robbie Lakeman (USA) scored 1,172,100 in the classic 1981 arcade game, dramatically pipping the 1,170,500 score set by his rival Wes Copeland just six hours earlier.

Copeland’s swiftly broken record was the first time a player had score more than 1.1 million points in the game on his first life. Donkey Kong is one of the most long-running competitive games in videogame history. The 2007 documentary film King of Kong observed the scene in candid detail, receiving considerable critical acclaim.
