Man plays Black Ops II for 135 hours (almost) straight, breaks world record

We’ve all woken up bleary eyed in the morning after a longer then expected game sessions the night before. But this takes it to a whole new level.

Australian retail worker Okan Kaya has set a new Guinness World Record for the longest video game marathon ever by playing Activision’s Black Ops II for a staggering 135 hours and 50 minutes, beating the previous record of 120 hours and seven minutes.

He didn’t play it without break, though, Guinness rules allow for ten minutes respite every hour, and that can be accrued meaning Kaya was in fact able to grab a brief nap or two by skipping his regular breaks.

By the end of the marathon Kaya was ranked 37th in the world at the game.

Be warned, though – prolonged gaming sessions can be bad for your health and are not for the feint-hearted.
