    Default You have one life in any game of your choosing...

    ... to amass as many points as you can.

    However many points you achieve will net you the same amount IN DOLLARS.

    Which game do you choose?!!

    Stipulations...
    1) No repeating levels
    2) No point spamming shortcuts

    Just a straight run through a game. GO!

    Touhou 7: Perfect Cherry Blossom. Very possible I die in the first few minutes or even seconds, but the point values if I don't are pretty crazy.

    Sonic 3 & Knuckles. In one sitting I can earn over a million and deaths are unlikely. I just have to be careful of that BS clip death in Carnival Night Zone. Also one in Death Egg Zone, but that's rare (however unavoidable, but it's so late in the game it doesn't matter much).

    If lock-on is not valid then just Sonic 3. All perfects in the special stages would net me over $350k alone.

    Certainly there are games with higher point values, but this is the only score based game that I wouldn't have to worry about lives.

    If I could let a friend be a ringer for me then it'd be Robotron though. Dude's either beaten the record high score or come close on an emulator before using a computer keyboard of all things.

    Well mine is Super Mario World on the Gameboy Advance. Here is my reasoning...

    - While the SNES control is better, dragon coins appear on EVERY LEVEL on the GBA allowing me to net $15,000 by collecting just four of them.
    - You are allowed to play a level twice ONLY if it has more than one exit. Sshhh you. My game, my rules.
    - Knocking 7 enemies over with a shell (or an invincibility star) will also net you $15,000.
    - Each power up of ANY KIND gives you $1000.

    I reckon I could amass over $2M before eventually dying.

    I have given this wayyyyyy too much thought.

    Are we counting only numbers called points, or actual money?

    I could have one go at each level of Burnout's Crash mode and earn a pretty little penny if that counts.
