A computer games fanatic battled his way to a new world record by playing 'Call of Duty: Black Ops 2' - for more than five-and-a-half days.

Determined Okan Kaya, 28, played the hit game for a total of 135 hours and 50 minutes.

Okan, of Sydney, Australia, smashed the previous record for continuous gaming which stood at 120 hours and seven minutes.

Now I'm really not one to judge as I have been known to play a video game or two in my time (to put it mildly) but I'm just gonna put this out there.

Hey Okan Kaya!  Get a life you loser!  You are going to be a 40 year old virgin living in your parents basement!!!!

Well, I'm somewhat at a loss for words on this.
I think OverSword summed it up nicely.

That can't be healthy.

I'll show this article to my brother.

He lives for computer games.

What's next, have nutrients and fluids fed intravenously to save some time from eating and drinking?

'Guinness allowed the breaks to be stored up and taken at once soOkan was able to sleep for several hours at a time.'

Doesn't really count as a 'non stop session' then does it.

Sorry, record invalid, try again.

I don't see how anyone can sit and play games that long.  Considering the breaks doesn't sound like non stop to me.

135 hours....on call of duty He should get an award for surviving the most mundane game ever made. 135 hours give me a RPG or at least something with some depth.

Those deaths are nothing more than Darwinism at its best.

Why do you think most people seem to read this story and then be harsh towards the guy?

Because Call of Duty is a terrible game.
