Man Breaks World Record For 60-Hour Online Gaming Marathon

 

 

A dedicated gamer from Hungary played World of Warcraft for a consecutive 59 hours and 20 minutes, breaking two Guinness World Records in the process.

 

Barnabás Vujity-Zsolnay, a professional chef from Budapest, bested the previous record for the longest video game marathon playing an MMORPG (massively multiplayer online role-playing game) by 23 hours and 31 minutes.

 


Vujity-Zsolnay also was awarded the record for the longest video game marathon playing World of Warcraft.

 

The gamer, whose attempt was streamed live from the studio of the gaming website esport1.hu, was allowed 5-minute breaks each hour to eat, nap or use the bathroom.

 

He said fatigue caused him to start hallucinating after about 45 hours of gaming.

 

"I noticed mild hallucinations starting to form," he told Guinness World Records. "It was funny but also hard to concentrate while live streaming."

 

Vujity-Zsolnay said he did not consume any caffeine during his attempt, instead drinking only water.

 

He said he does not intend to lose his titles.

 

"I love the game and I will retake the record if it's beaten. This is mine for life -- I want everyone to know that," he said.
