“Call of Duty: Black Ops II” definitely set sales records for Activision, but it may have also helped Okan Kaya smash a previous gaming world record. The 28-year-old Australian father of two showed the world how much he loves Duty last week, by playing the game for 135 hours and 50 minutes.
According to News.com.au, Kaya’s gaming marathon smashed the previous Guinness World Record for longest video game marathon, which was marked at 120 hours and 7 minutes. The feat took Kaya nearly 6 days and though he was allowed brief breaks during his time with the game, it’s still quite an accomplishment.
Kaya apparently works for a company called 4Cabling and though he was not able to obtain retailer sponsorships, his employer allowed him to use a company meeting room to attempt the record setting gaming session.
To prove his accomplishment, witnesses were brought into the meeting room every four hours. Kaya’s attempt was also recorded on video. Nothing is official just yet, but this documentation is being sent Guinness World Records officials who will either confirm or deny the record setting game marathon in the coming weeks.
