That's truly insane!

Yeah, it really is. I have spent some 24 hours on a game before, but there's no way I could last 3 days.

I guess the guy took naps after picking up a load of extra lives. LOL.

Why do I get the feeling his eyes were red as hell when he stopped playing? XD
JoeIsMad  +   385d ago
Absolutely! There's no way he's not STILL sleeping.

this seems a bit overboard to just break a record. im also the type of guy that doesn't care what my score is as long as i beat the game im playing.

think im the minority

He had a goal to break the world record for the game he was playing, it just happens that it took as long as it did, giving him the record with 85+ hours played.
