Man Breaks Guinness World Record For Longest Gameplay Session By Playing Black Ops II

Posted on November 20, 2012 AT 12:23pm

How long was your longest gameplay session ever? For Okan Kaya, his answer to that resulted in a new Guinness World Record.

Kaya—a sales manager for 4Cabling in Sydney, Australia—ended up clocking in 135 hours 50 minutes of Call of Duty: Black Ops II, beating previous record-holders Christopher Gloyd and Timothy Bell, who had played Resistance for just over 120 hours and 7 minutes.

Kaya’s attempt was streamed via UStream over the course of seven days, and according to Guinness World Record rules, he was allowed ten minutes of break time for every hour he gamed (with the break time being able to be accumulated). As well—thanks to his massive amount of time spent with Black Ops II—Kaya ended up coming in at 29th on the game’s overall leaderboards.

How about you? What’s the longest gameplay session you’ve ever had? Thinking back, there have been many weekend that I lost to whatever the latest massive RPG release was at that point—though I’m pretty sure none of them ever came close to Kaya’s session.
