Pac Man – Video Game Lies Wiki

In 1982, 8-year-old Jeffrey R. Yee of San Fransisco set the worldwide record for the high score on Pac Man: 6,131,940 points. In reality, the highest score achievable is 3,333,360 points, due to a game-ending byte-overflow bug in the screen rendering code when level 256 is reached. Even President Ronald Reagan was fooled by this lie, having sent Jeffrey a letter of congratulations.

I like how Ronny Ray-gun actually gave a shit about video games, man everyone was seduced by Pac Man and his pills! Check out more lies at the Video Game Lies Wiki, see if your favorites is on there, and yes just about every nude code that never worked is there.
