Call Of Duty: Black Ops II Gets Man Guinness World Records by Leadn(m): 7:45am On Nov 21, 2012
Playing games could be fun and also a gateway to Guinness world records as is the case of Okan Kaya, who got a spot for playing Call of Duty: Black Ops II over 135 hours

On Monday, the sales manager at the Sydney-based online retailer 4Cabling set a Guinness World Record for the longest video game marathon ever by playing over 122 135 hours of blockbuster first-person shooter Black Ops II.

That tops the previous record of 120 hours, 7 minutes, which was set earlier this year by a Canadian duo playing Sony’s Resistance series.

It took Kaya seven days to reach the 135 hour, 50 minute mark, though he didn’t actually play in one long uninterrupted session. According to Guinness rules, players are granted one ten-minute break every hour, and any unspent time is accumulated. By skipping several breaks, Kaya was able to actually catch a little sleep and stay in relatively good spirits.

Unsupervised gaming marathons have, in the past, resulted in tragedies. In July a Taiwanese man collapsed and died following a 40-hour Diablo III marathon at an internet café. Last year, an American gamer suffered a pulmonary embolism during a 20-hour Xbox session.

Official record-breaking attempts are closely monitored, however, and Kaya was accompanied at all times by a rotating crew of supporters and witnesses. He also exercised and alternated between sitting and standing positions while he played.

And make no mistake: he really played the game. By the end of his epic session, Kaya was ranked 37th on the Black Ops II leaderboards. The game itself is a record-breaker as well, earning over $500 million in its first 24 hours.

There is no way in hell I would do that.

He didn't break it. Before you try a record, you have to ask Guinness for a permission. After they give you the permission you can try to do it. I know that because i am going to play Crysis 3 (i already have a permission to try to beat the record from Guinness) and beat the current record (120 hours and 7 min) on 23 February 2013 22:00 (GTM+2).
