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.

Those deaths are nothing more than Darwinism at its best.

The best one I heard of was a couple who had two pcs.

After five days of non stop playing they discovered their baby had died of dehydration. I think it was the worlds first World of Warcraft baby lol.

i'll agree with you .. i find all first person shooters game are very boring and blank
seriously what's so fun about controling a hand with gun and crossair all day ?

if a guy want to waste his life on game for god sake pick a decent story game at least :D

by the name of Allah the Gracious the Merciful
Say, "I seek refuge in the Lord of daybreak From the evil of that which He created
And from the evil of darkness when it settles And from the evil of the blowers in knots
And from the evil of an envier when he envies"
truthful was Allah The Most High And Great

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

This sprang into my mind as well.

The guy was going for a record. People do silly things for records. People ride roller coasters for days at a time. They play monopoly in elevators. They walk backwards across the country.

You could argue that anyone going for any time record is silly and needs a date *rolls eyes* but this guy is no different than any of the others.

Embrace the impossible.

Because it makes them feel better about themselves.

People have died of DVT from playing for far shorter periods of time. I have to sit at a computer for long periods of time due to my current studies, but it does feel disgusting to do so and is not good for you physically or emotionally. Taking frequent breaks is important.

I'm at work so can't read the article.

Do we actually know if this guy is an addict? Or did he just want to break the record?

The 'bulk break' thing is a bit of a cop out...

True, there are many things he could have better done, but I can't help but be appalled by the immediate judgement of this man. He broke a world record for playing a nonstop session of a rather dull game. Yes it isn't the smartest or most impressive thing to do, but it still took time and effort. He could have done something far more stupid, like going for a record of surviving the largest fall ever taken. Sadly then, more likely than not, he would be given a more positive reception.

He likes what he likes and he wanted to break a world record in it. Congratulations to him. It doesn't merit such a large fire back.
