Local Corsicana gamer Lamund Henry, who was featured last November for placing his first world champion score in Twin Galaxies, won three 2021 Peer Choice Awards last December for submitting 151 accepted and approved entries to the official Guinness World Records source for video game records.
As a result of his dedication, fellow gamers within the official scoring community nominated and awarded Henry (who goes by the profile name “LAH16”), three titles out of six categories: Rookie of the Year, Contributor of the Year, and Performance of the Year.
The Twin Galaxies Annual Peer Choice Awards 2021 results are as follows:
Gamer of the Year – @redelf
Rookie of the Year – @LAH16
Prolific Gamer – @Rogerpoco and @Luigi Ruffolo
Contributor of the Year – @LAH16
Performance of the Year – @LAH16
Comeback of the Year – @dbh and @CWK
Henry, upon learning the news, expressed excitement for his wins.
“First, I’d like to thank my family and friends for pushing me to do something with my skills in playing video games,” Henry said. “Without you guys, this wouldn’t have happened.”
“Second, I’d like to thank my fellow Twin Galaxies members for voting for me to win the 2021 Twin Galaxies Peer Choice Awards for Rookie of the Year, Contributor of the Year, and Performance of the Year for my 60,000 Perfect Score through Course 1 on Star Fox for Super Nintendo.”
The Twin Galaxies organization has been a part of the competitive gaming scene since 1981, recording arcade and video game scores and achievements. The official website describes the organization as “the world’s most preeminent professional organization, community and social platform that is solely dedicated to the recognition, promotion, support and elevation of all video game players throughout the world!“
For 2022, Henry plans to continue submitting scores to the organization.
“I’m truly honored and grateful to Twin Galaxies for the opportunity to show what I can do in video games and I’ll continue to do my best to show the entire world what I’m capable of,” Henry said.
