Soulskill posted more than 5 years ago | from the dot-dot-dot dept.

inKubus writes "40-year-old David Race of Beaver Creek, OH has become the 6th gamer in history to gain a perfect score on the original Pac-Man video arcade game. Even more noteworthy is the fact that he's done it in faster time than any gamer in history, putting him at the top of a short list of gamers who have achieved perfection on the original arcade machine."

You know it's Slashdot when a "grammar nazi" has a spelling mistake in their criticism of a sentence.
