In October of 2002 a 24 year old South Korean man called Kim Kyung-jae collapsed at an internet café. He had been playing an MMORPG called Mu for 86 hours pausing only to buy cigarettes or visit the toilet. He died from a combination of exhaustion and deep vein thrombosis.
I guess gratz for the achievement. They're Dutch too, Any dutch gamer I've met seems to take things that extra mile, surely tho there's bound to have been some chinese grinder on WoW thats lasted longer?
I bet I could beat that. Seriously 50 hours is only 2 nights without sleep and assuming they were allowed to eat and drink while playing and go to the toilet I do not see how that it can be that difficult. I've gone 2 nights without sleep before and although it's not nice, it's not difficult!
How do I go about getting an official Guinness World Record official to come to my house?!
[citation][nom]LORD_ORION[/nom]LOL! Seriously? I am betting 1/2 the people here have a pulled a drunken, energy drink fueled 72 hour game marathon at least once in their lives.Wha... I've been playing for 72 hours? Coulda swore it was 2.[/citation]
Back in the day, my brother and our school buddies used to rotated where we LAN each week... 50h really goes by VERY fast when you play some intense FPS or RTS'. I don't know if I've ever done 50h strait without a 30min nap, but we've played more than 10 days strait over the summer one year.
I'm in the same boat as most of the commenters here, I've easily surpassed 50 hours of non-stop gaming, at more than one occasion in my life. I'm pretty sure at any point in time, there is some gamer somewhere working on a 50+ hour gaming session....Particularly the WoW heads.
