Why vote no to scores that are played live?

I believe it's a trolling.

But I consider your score very believable on Game 1-BB (Fast and Guided Missiles) - during the Activision Patches Summer Quest 2015 Contest, I tied numerically the World Record on Megamania. Using my Stella, I scored 999,999 points in 50 minutes. Even Todd Rogers's score on 2600 Megamania (Game 1-BB) I consider believable.

I can see your face, your 2600 console, settings and final score.

that was some pretty accurate shooting  x)

i think your evidences are some of the best on this site!   also as oyama said this game has been rolled many times by other solid gamers so you definitely got my vote  yes

the only thing i could think of for a really tight-assed super-strict reason to vote no is, the video doesn't show you AND the video screen at the same time, in the same frame.  So maybe someone could say, "well, what if he just watched somebody else's video while filming himself holding a joystick and watching the video?"

@S.BAZ:

I see your point but thats a little far fetched. I show the system settings and power cycled the system at the start. Would be to much trouble to doctor up a video instead of just playing it. Plus i dont have any video editing skills. All the scores I have posted here are also on Twin Galaxies. So can always check out my score page to see what I am up too.

definitely far-fetched to think someone here would go through all that trouble just to cheat, yes i agree. 

to think someone here might have really tight evidence standards when it comes to a world-class score going onto a world-wide leaderboard, on the other hand, doesn't seem far-fetched to me at all. 

Twin Galaxies I think used to require that, the video had to show the player and the game at the same time in the same shot for the entire play-through. 

i really don't know at all, I just thought maybe that could be the reason.
