Ugh, my evidence has issues, but hopefully people who don't like my evidence will Skip instead of voting No. The problem is that the high score didn't register on the yellow title screen. You can see the high score of 69,910 in my fourth photo, and that 69,910 is my second-highest score in the second and third photos. I wouldn't make such a big deal out of it except I realized that none of the photos showing 101,160 have any indication what game it is (i.e. Dig Dug). I know that, in theory, the best way to solidify my evidence is to replay the game and get a similarly high score, but this felt like a once-in-a-lifetime score. I have been waiting for years to crack 75k, always falling short, usually dying by level 9. Getting to level 13 is a crazy outlier that might never be repeated. Well, that's my story. I'll see how the voting shakes out. Thanks for reading.

It's good evidence! I like that you care about game ID as well as user ID! Yes vote!

@RetroRob: Yeah, it occurred to me that it could be any Namco game that lets you record five high scores and calls each level a "round". Thanks for the reassurance, everyone.

the 69,910 score matches up, and also I don't remember that "Go for the world record!" screen from any other games.  I always think, "Dig Dug" when I see that!

@S.BAZ: FYI, New Rally-X has the world record exhortation as well.

oh, right I guess I knew that... well I voted yes anyway and this is not a terribly high score so it doesn't need a lot of scrutiny in my opinion!
