    “much ado about…?”

    About probably one of the largest media releases in history, and a funny story that goes along with it.

    im just curious as to how long he will try to keep playing after hitting the 25-hour mark and how long it will be until the next attempted record-breakage.

    …and the stat he’s particularly proud of? 0 times cheated.

    Wait, the game just came out, like, yesterday or something? Are the cheat codes ALREADY on the internet for him to decide Not To Use? If they are, this is some kind of new benchmark of the medium of “video games” being completely not about “skill” any more.

    Hilarious! It’s Matty from Bushleague.TV We just passed the 27th hour mark. The goal at this point is stopping at the 28! Thank you for all your support… especially everyone on the BoingBoing team.

    Don’t Chinese gold farmers rack up this kind of time every day?

    23 hours and only 1/4 completed??!?

    Must be goofing around a lot. I read that an experienced GTA player should be able to complete the game in 50 hrs. Although if we’re talking about percentage of missions and sub-missions completed, that could take weeks.

    After what little I’ve seen of it, I can’t wait to own GTA IV. The improved physics, and the fact that you rarely (if ever) see the same two people walking the streets is enough for me.

    Any word on whether you can access a BoingBoing parody site from within the game?

    Ya, while impressive, this is probably one of those records that has been beaten thousands of times, but never officially. There have been quite a few stories in the last several years detailing people (usually Koreans) dying at the computer after playing for days straight.

    Personally, I’ve had a few runs between the 14-20 hour mark in various MMO’s, but I never had the foresight to contact the Guinness World Record people beforehand.

  10. Lonin says:

    The percentage complete is not the story line, it’s every piece of content in the game. The main story line can be completed in under 30 hours, but to reach 100% game completion you’d probably be looking at over 100 hours of play time.
