An Australian man shattered the Guinness World Record for a video game marathon after he played Call of Duty: Black Ops 2 for nearly 135 hours. Seven full days of video game playing will take a toll on you physically and mentally, so 28-year-old Okan Kaya attempted to "pad up" his controller and keep bandages on deck during his quest to break the record. Kaya, who's a sales manager with online retailer 4Cabling, used the company's meeting room to set the record.
He took 10 minute breaks between the sessions, slept in sleeping bags and drank energy drinks to stay alert. He also relied on sudden blasts of loud music to keep him attentive. Despite his success, corporate sponsors failed to back his act because they didn't want to be associated with "addictive gaming."
Kaya, who's married with children, says he's going to gracefully bow out of competitive gamingâ€”for the moment.
