Gamer Sets Grand Theft Auto IV World Record

October 21, 2009Written by Kyle P.


Have you ever thought your nightlong gaming sessions were hardcore? As the sun rose in the morning, after a full night of gaming, did you consider yourself one of gaming’s elite? Most likely you did not play as long as Chirantan Patnaik, who just broke the Guinness World record for continuous play troughs on Grand Theft Auto 4.

Patnaik played for a jaw-dropping 40 hours, 20 minutes. This shattered the previous mark, held by an American, who had a mere 28 hours. On his record, Patnaik said:

“There are so many other games which I have played for long hours.

But I had never tried playing this particular game seriously. However, I knew that I can do it after I saw my brother playing it.”

So, could you accomplish anything even remotely close? Post your responses in the comments section below.
