In what can only be called a bad idea, a gentleman from Sydney decided to play Call of Duty: Black Ops II for 122 hours.
Health risks notwithstanding... well, no... it really is all about the health risks. It's impressive on the one hand, but maniacal on the other.
Apparently there's a biggish number of people who put themselves through this sort of thing as well, as the 122 hour record beat out a previously held 120 hour record from Canada.
Congratulations to Okan Kaya, a sales manager from Sydney, for breaking the record, and for helping prove to the world that games are a family-friendly passtime which are just another part of a healthy daily entertainment diet.
