John Lawton Honored for 30 Record on Depth Charge

March, 2008

Twin Galaxies is proud to posthumously honor John Lawton, of the Funspot Family Fun Center, in Weirs Beach, NH, for holding the "Longest Held Video Game World Record." While also holding the record as the oldest video game champion, Lawton has held the Depth Charge arcade title from November 30, 1977 until November 18, 2007 - a span of time that was 12 short of 30 complete years. His record of 4,660 points was beaten by Martin Bedard of St. Lazare, PQ, Quebec, who scored a new record of 4,770 points. In signing commemorative poster, it is Twin Galaxies' heartfelt belief that John's record will stand in our hearts forever.
