Video Game Record Broken?

A 28-year-old Sydney resident reckons that he smashed a Guinness World Record for video-gaming, claiming that he clocked up almost 136 hours playing video games. The original article can be viewed here.

Early on Tuesday, Okan Kaya took over the previous record made by two Canadian men - 120 hours.

It was midnight when he put down his PS3 controller and stopped playing Black Ops II after versing other players online for the past 135 hours and 50 minutes.

On Tuesday, he was very confident that he had beaten the World Record. Despite breaking the record, he also ended up with a world-wide ranking of 29 after starting in the millions.

Apparently, he stayed in a room, sipping energy drinks, sleeping in a sleeping bag and listening to loud music when he was starting to feel weary.

Surprisingly, Kaya's boss was the one who kept him going - with sufficient witnesses to his gaming experience and the constant support of energy drinks being supplied by him.

Seems like a wonderful few days Kaya had there!

Congrats wasted 135 hours of your life and polluted yourself with rat poison all those nights
black ops 2, wow, i wonder what was his level and class... would be good to find out his player ID and try to join a game or something
I think he's an idiot there's no way I'd strain my body to do something like this it just isn't worth it.

agree as much as i would love to why im one of the best gamers around its not worth your health over it


why black ops 2 if i was to do it i would do it on AC 3
I would not be able to play a game for that long. I would get bored. Also yea it would be bad for your health... [Shifty]
I don't really know whether I should be happy or worried for him...

@capt_oats I'd get soo bored, too...

Who knows, he's probably vomiting everywhere right now.
