Indian Gamer Attempts to Break World Record
| by Avinash Bali |
People sure do some crazy stuff to enter the Guinness Book of Records. They grow their nails, snort fish and even pull heavy objects with their eyelids. Today one gamer from India plans on joining their ranks not by doing any of the above mentioned painful stuff.
Chirantan Patnaik, a 26 year old gamer from Mumbai plans on entering the Guinness Book of World Records by playing Grand Theft Auto IV non-stop for more than 28 hours since that's the current world record held by Jim Patton from America. But he’s not keen on just beating the record; he wants to own it by a mile clocking in more than 30 hours.
He'll enter Liberty City tomorrow at 10.00 AM sharp and will be allowed to take 10 minute breaks every hour to do his natural deeds like eating, drinking and you know...
I spoke to Chirantan and he seemed confident. In fact he told me staying up for 24+ hours isn’t new to him and he’s done it so many times during his career. He’s even undergone some endurance training by running, exercising and practicing yoga.
When I asked him why he choose Grand Theft Auto IV of all games, he told me that (a) he’s not played GTA IV before (hibernate much?) and (2) a game that offered an open world structure would suit him the best. Saint’s Row 2 was crossed off because apparently it’s "too gangsta".
You can watch him try and attempt this feat by heading over to his blog, NeuralChaos.com that offers a live stream. It's even got a shoutout box in there so if you’d like to wish him all the best or sprout some words of advice/encouragement, feel free to do so.
