For just over a year now I have been wanting to attempt to break a gaming record. I got a copy of the Guinness world records book for gamers as a fathers day present last year; after reading it I realised that breaking a similar gaming record to some of the feats featured in the book not only was possible to could be quite achievable with the right idea & possibly some help from Xbox or a publisher with a big game to be released during 2017. I’m thinking of setting a record for the longest time playing a game.
Personally I blame watching this show as a child for me getting the ambition for a gaming record. For those that don’t know Record Breakers was a UK TV show hosted by Roy Castle in which record attempts would appear. sadly Roy died of lung cancer just like my granddad, hence why I want to do this.
Most records it appears is done as a form of fund raising for charities, so I think I have found the right charity to raise money for, I just need to find a game that I can play for 24 hours and I think I might know which publisher to contact regarding this. I’ve never done anything like this in my life so it seems I will have to do some investigating in how to turn this idea into a reality.
