Okay, so I was just browsing through the rockstar games website news and I seen that some college student has beaten the 28 hour world record of IV, to 55 hours. I don't mean to brag though but when I was in Jamaica one vacation I've played GTA4 for 3 days straight one vacation (this was before I had a PSN account).

So my main point of this topic is to say that I want to step up and beat this record. Does anyone here think that I have the chance to beat the 55 hour record?

55 hours is a long time though, just over 2 full days straight.

Well yeah if what you're saying is true. You're only allowed breaks to piss/shit though. I presume you eat while playing etc.

BTW, why the hell were you staying inside playing videogames when on holiday in a nice hot country?

@Chris: You don't understand though, don't go to Negril. Go to Kingston the REAL Jamaica and you'll see why.

But anyways I think i might start this about next month maybe, if i can borrow my mums mac and get a PS3 camera. If there is a prize I'll donate it to the earthquake in Haiti.

I couldn't even last one day, I haven't been able to a successful all nighter in a long time. Anyway, I personally wouldn't. If you fall asleep while doing it, you'll probably feel down for not accomplishing it.

Plus there's all the obvious health implications, and the strain on your eyes. The OPM mag have done 2 challenges like this, their most recent was 24 hours on MW2, sort of, in between failed connections, and they always said that they were mad for doing it.

Yeah health problems man, I used to play Wolfenstein for around 19 hours straight, game after game. I would only toilet and eat at computer, sometimes not even eat. 3 bottles of 2 liter coke and I was sorted. Wouldn't do that ever again, don't have the patience or will.

I don't think there's any real health risk with it being a one off. If you've suffered from dizziness or anything from looking at screens before, i'd say likelihood is it'll manifest itself here, but if you haven't it should be cool. It's like taking up smoking for a day or 2. It's not great for you, but after some good old fashioned fresh air and sunlight you'll be fine. Obviously don't sit a foot away and make sure the room's got natural light and air.
