    Because bitching about bloggers’ topic choices is so cutting edge, not to mention useful.

    It’s been said, but acting opposite the flock can be just as sheep-like as following it.

    Heh, I was PAID to play GTA4 for 80 hours back in December!

    Nehr nehr, neh neh nehr.

    I played san andreas for around 24 hours straight when I first got it…guess I should have called Guinness before hand

    Hey #21, I just want you to know that I’m taking this steak knife here and ramming it into my left carotid. Because of you. Yes, it’s my hand that guides the knife, but in many ways, it’s also your tardocity.

    I hope his thumbs hold up. Twenty-five hours is a *lot* of button mashing.

  6. Automatt says:

    In the video coverage, you can’t see the game screen, which is kind of a disappointment.

    I am so glad that I now know about fan death.

    Yeah, every year at least one Korean guy dies playing Lineage II for 3+ days without stopping.

    Antinous, you know about the crazy fan thing, too? Thank god! No one ever seems to believe me.

    My wife (Japanese) also is deathly afraid of fans. Drives me nuts.

    Internet Video Firm? Is that what we’re calling them these days?

  12. Emma says:

    Come ON, people. Desert Bus for Hope – 4 days and 12 hours of DESERT BUS.

    This is nothing.

    AutoMatt…they have a separate feed for the game screen footage…

    sad that i knew this. ever sadder i felt the need to share.

    Okay, with the overhype surrounding this game—and more people not caring than Rockstar flacks would actually admit—why is a quality blog like Boing Boing actually adding to the Rockstar promotion machine?

  15. Hugh Lilly says:

    The 4chan dorks in the chat room are reasonably good entertainment.

  16. Xeni Jardin says:

    Jack, it’s because I think these guys are fucking hilarious and if they played fucking parcheesi for 25 hours they would make it worth watching. I’ve watched them develop their show, and I think it’s fantastic. It’s not so much about GTA as it is about the bushleague guys.

  17. iamcantaloupe says:

    only 25 consecutive hours of gaming???

    a korean could do that in his sleep (and would).

  18. Agent 86 says:

    Level grinding without the ability to gain levels. quaint.

  19. Maurik says:

    Everyone who has played an MMO ever, has definitely played more than 25 hours.

  20. Antinous says:

    a korean could do that in his sleep (and would).

    As long as there was no fan in the room.

    They’re keeping points on how many prostitutes he goes to (or kills). This is perhaps the most boring and shitty post I’ve read on here. As a female reader, thanks Boingboing!
