Elizabeth ‘Kitty McScratch’ Bolinger from Iowa, who first earned a place in the 2011 World Records Gamer’s Edition with the high score for ‘Dare’ on Just Dance (11,661 points on Aug 8, 2010) – has outdone her own record breaking performance to boogie her way into the latest edition of the Guinness World Records. She has earned herself the ‘Most Prolific Dancing Game High Scorer’ by having more than 85 number one high scores on the Just Dance and Dance Central franchises!
Elizabeth’s love of gaming stems from using videogames as a way to challenge herself to new heights of achievement. The 24-year-old was first introduced to video games in the early 90’s by her father, who was immersed in the world of casual PC gaming. A true dancing game enthusiast, Elizabeth pushes the limits of her ability by achieving top scores blindfolded and sometimes backwards! Her favorite songs to dance to include “Hot and Cold” by Katy Perry where she’s scored over 16,000 points blindfolded and “Bullet Proof” by La Roux.
A long-time fan of the Guinness World Records books as a kid, she says: “You really can make dreams happen, it’s just a matter of putting in the hard work and dedication.” She is an active member of the International Video Game Hall of Fame and Museum in her hometown Ottumwa, IA and is dedicated to preserving the history of videogames.
Guinness World Records 2012 Gamer’s Edition is available now in the US and available in the UK from January 19th.
