So this contest is not centered on any particular games for a system...we can just draw one at random and start playing to max it out?

Correct.

 

Basically, the objective is to beat as many high scores on games on that system as you can.

So do the games have to be played on original consoles? I don't see any mention of emulators on the website.

There are separate categories for authentic hardware and emulated game play. For this contest, trophies won on emulated game play and original hardware both count.

Feel free to let me know if you have any other questions!

The NES contest is currently in progress.

There will be more contests during 2015, with some of those to begin pretty soon.

High Score just started a new multi-platform contest on Tron games.

 

The prize is a NOS M-Network Tron Joystick for Atari 2600 (and other systems that are compatible with Atari joysticks).
