So you think you’re the best Guitar Hero player ever born? Think again! You’ve seen all those YouTube videos about little kids kicking the butt of everyone else – never mind that we are twice or three times his age. If you want some “light reading” that is all about gaming, then Guinness has the perfect thing for you – the 2011 Gamer’s Edition. Just to give you an idea, here is an interview with the record holder for the highest scoring female Guitar Hero player. Hats off to you, Annie Leung.
It’s not all about “serious” records, though. In case you have ever wondered about all that swearing in video games, you can read up on that in this edition. Other pieces of trivia that you can start memorizing (to use as pick up lines, conversation starters, or whatever):
- The oldest gamer included in the book is John Bates of Onalaska, Wisconsin. He is 85 years old, a former high school principal, and is a certified Wii Bowling addict. His feat? He has the highest number of perfect games on Wii Sports Bowling: 2,850.
- Mitsugu Kikai from Tokyo is only 25 years old and has 5,400 items of Super Mario-related memorabilia. Does anyone out there have more? Let Guinness know!
- Angry Birds is the Top Paid-For Apple App Store Game. But then again, we already know that, don’t we?
Find out how to get your hands on the book from the Guinness web site. If anything, it will be a good way to pass the time when you don’t have anything else to do.
