Matt Siegfried wanted to be first. So, the championship gamer—who's already notched #1 rankings in various titles—got Borderlands 2 as soon as he could at a midnight launch and started playing right away.
Damn, surprised he didnt die from sitting in place that long.. Some ppl are more core than ill ever be.. I dont have the time for that kind of dedication.. Even if i did, i wouldnt play something that long like this.. Now what does he have to look forward to?
I'm sure he'll find other games to feed his OCD.
Exactly... Speed running and speed completionists aren't exactly what I consider gamers. They typically aren't playing to experience the game, but to prove a point to themselves. I'm not knocking them... it's their time and money, but then you have people who say "____ game is too short because some guy in South Korea bet it in ____ time period", when in reality, games like Borderlands 2, Skyrim, etc, etc are meant to be enjoyed over a long time period... Not rammed down the pipe, chewed up and spit out.
Eh, whatever makes them happy. I prefer to take my time and soak up the atmosphere of a game, but if someone else prefers speed runs or trying to top the leaderboards, etc., then more power to them. Just try not to damage your health. Even if a game you've been waiting for just released, it's still important to get a little exercise every day.
43 hours of any game is LONG no matter how you see it! you don't ask about atmosphere or anything if you've played the game for 43 hours!
And guess what ladies, he's single!
Handsome Jack must'av been thinking: 'How do you kill one which has no life?'
Reminds me of this http://www.youtube.com/watc...
the way I look at is: he finished the game in less than 2 days, breaking a record, but ultimately destroying the entire experience of playing a game. I love milking my own experience with a game, taking my time, hell I'll stop a game after an hour or so just to get excited about the prospect of jumping back in later. It's hopefully his playstyle, and if he's doing it to be an elitist prick and chest thump his achievement, than who is to stop him?
I am right there with ya. Taking my time and enjoying the details
I rather play take my time open every little chest for weapons,money and ammo than to rush through it I spent over 150-200 hrs into borderlands 1 with all it's dlc and that's playing single player no co-op But great for him and his achievement
That's ridiculous, the game hasn't even been out for a week.
Eh I guess. Me and my friend already beat every mission on true vault hunter and got Terra down to a 1 minute 30 second fight. When you factor in his down time and such, it's actually a MUCH shorter fight.
Pace yourself man, jeez.
what's funny is the boatload of gamers that follow this guy's example and a week from now will be complaining about how short the game was.
how is 43 hours "short"? as a beginner, I finished Kingdom Hearts 100% in under 30H...that's short, but this, not even close!
@ badz149: To a lot of people a 43 hour game is short.
Last I checked, a lot of best selling titles could be beat in 5-10 hours. 43 hours on a speedrun is love.
This is newsworthy? I can name 5 people off the top of my head who are already level 50 or damn close to it around 45 hours as well. This isn't anything special especially in a SP and Co-Op game.
he should get a live...
It's life first of all and it's not your life he's wasting.
Typo or no typo, take out the words, "get" and "a" and your left with a similar sentiment: he should live.
He's actually on my friends list and we've gamed together for a couple years now, so I can vouch for him being a pretty normal college kid who is in good shape and has a social life. He's just extremely good at time management and will occasionally clear his schedule for ridiculously long gaming sessions when a new game comes out.
You should learns to type. /irony
Yeah.... that isn't irony.
Autocorrect ftw! I wrote idiot before.
The [F] key is right above the [V] key
YEAH! "Learns" to type :D
I wasn't dissing Jumper09 I was making light of a simple mistake.
Some will call that hardcore... I think there are other adjectives to use...and many aren't too complimentary. But, clearly he is young so what the hell... congrats you win a ... ummm...well...yeah..you win the... pat on the back.
Congrats to him. I myself take longer to beat games (even the more linear ones) than my 9 year old cousin. I could beat it in half the time as him, but I always soak up the experience and look for easter eggs and collectibles. He did a good job, I myself wouldn't do that If I was paid, as it wouldn't be enjoyable AT ALL (for me) so therefore that game would be ruined forever for me. I suppose there are many more 'Tiers' of CORE than we gamers think about.
His life is now complete!! He's peaked, it's all downhill from here!!!
how is that even possible? ive played this so much is less than a week and im only level 20
