Frenzy World Record of Paul Dean - December 4, 2005

Mark Smith of Shelby, NC, United States has lost his 1983 golden era Frenzy Title of 4,804,540, to Paul Dean, 4,874,931, of Riverside, CA, on December 4, 2005 at the Totally Amused Classic Players Reunion at Humble, Texas. This classic era players reunion and competition was run by Dwayne Richard, Famous for many world record titles, and Walter Day, founder of Twin Galaxies. This 41 hour game was grueling and probably will not be matched in the future unless another Iron Man comes around in the next 20 years. Mark Smith held his title for 22 years, as his score was a tough score to beat because of the time involved to marathon this title. Dwayne Richard and Walter Day confirmed the entire Frenzy Game, and the Four Roll overs in which a referee must be present at all times to confirm this difficult to follow game. When ever there is a roll over present, there must be triple checks on the score to make sure it is legitimate. This score was made the official world record on December 4, 2005 by Walter Day. Paul Dean Video Game Biography: Arcade Video Game Paul Dean from Riverside, California, born October 1, 1964 was named All Star Marathon crown at Totally Amused Arcade on December 4th, 2005 in Humble, Texas during the highly-acclaimed "Legends of the Golden Age" classic gamers reunion after playing Frenzy, the sequel to Berzerk, for over 41 hours for a new world record. He also took first place on Spy Hunter after an 11 hour marathon at the Third Annual Masters Tournament on June 28, 1985, beating the legendary players Phil Britt and Jeff Peters at the Huish Family Fun Center in Upland, California. This high score put him in the 1986 Guinness Book of World Records. Paul Dean was in the finals of the California Silco West Asteroids State Championships in 1981 after winning the regionals with a 12 hour marathon game on Asteroids at a Silco West 7/11 on Arlington Avenue in Riverside, California.
