There's also a listing for the longest video games marathon on a first-person shooter, lasting 33 hours and achieved by Rustler's Gamesafe team in Newbuty, UK.
33 hours? That's it? They must have some pretty strict rules on what defines a marathon (no eating/drinking/peeing?) because I've gone longer than that. I think it was about 40 hours of Perfect Dark. We stopped to eat and for pee breaks, but nothing else that could be considered a real break from the game.

How do they know he scored a perfect game on all those games? Was there video of every one? Didn't think you could have a record unless it was taped or witnessed.

I guarantee you that there are more than a few people who have beaten that, its just that 33 hours is the most that anyone has REPORTED with PROOF.

yeah to get a record you have to pay guiness $5k and have them send an official out to record your attempt and verify your claims. it used to mean something but now they have records for every single retarded thing you can imagine.

It said he began recording them in 2009, which suggests that he had recorded evidence of his feat. However he did it, he managed to meet Guinness's strict standards of proof.

If you read... "He then began recording his perfect games in April 2009."
