People have been tracking records for playing video games for more than twenty years. The game now known as the World Record has been with us that long. The early guys who played the game at the arcade and tracked record were a motley crew of people from the Northeast, Midwestern, and even some from other places in the United States.

The arcade game could be played by anyone who walked in. The first recorded time was over forty-five minutes. The first person to get the longest score of a certain number of games to beat that record. Then, the game was patented, trademarked again.

The earliest record was set in a city called New Bedford Massachusetts in 1976, with players being twenty-one years old and up. The player who beat the World Record came from a suburb of Boston called Waltham. Some people, though, claim that the game was officially placed on the World Records List when people thought that they could not beat it anymore.

Then, another record was set in Mexico in 1987 with someone who had their video system in their home. They had a variety of people at their house that could play the game and did not have to go to the arcade anymore. The high score record holder was from a town called Villahermosa, Mexico.

There was also a record holder from Scotland who got his video system at a garage sale. The owner bought a few broken pieces of equipment that did not run and put them all together. The next owner would go and get a new video unit for him and get them back. The video game was rigged so that when the player pressed a certain button, it would start a new game.

The other World Record that was used when people started thinking about how to beat this game was that of a champion. Two players decided to join forces and test their gaming skills against each other. It is still held that the record was broken when two players at the same time beat forty-five minutes.

They were: Hector Arce from Mexico City, thirty-five minutes; and Victor Mercado, thirty-five minutes. Both of them beat their own records, and the record set by Arce and Mercado was the original times. Mercado’s time stood until recent times, when it was challenged by a collector in Madrid.

Then the first people started to beat the original records that had been set by these two. One of the records that was beaten by Mercado was thirty-three minutes. Mercado said that the game slowed down to where he did not feel he could compete anymore.

A man from England came in at thirty-two minutes and claimed that he had beaten Arce’s record by four minutes. This record stood for three days before it was challenged. When the challenger came into the record holder’s house, the game was stopped.

The man then said that he wanted to challenge Mercado to a rematch and that he had brought the number of games necessary to beat the world record for playing video games. The other challenger agreed to the challenge and each went out to start a new game. There was then a thirty-minute break between the second game and the third game. The challenger wanted to keep the time that he was beating Arce’s record at for the third game.

As soon as that game started, Mercado hit the ball with one second faster than Mercado’s initial time. Mercado claimed that the difference in speed was in his mind and not in the game. There is no doubt that the record for this game was broken in 1983 by a group of people who beat the world record by ten minutes. The fact that it was broken in 1983 by two people who didn’t know each other at all shows that records and scores are much harder to keep up nowadays than they were in the past.

  1. I played Turok for about 48h using a lil bit of speeding up vitamins ; ) At the end i was so fucked up that i do not realize that i can put that thing in the middle and ending the game i was jumping around seeing things that not existed. It was my first and last 2 Day Marathon. 24h are okey with breaks to eat and rest.

  2. I'm sorry but the actual time as of now for super Mario Bros is actually 4:55 and it was done by someone else. One of his competitors actually. And the funny thing is is that it was done on the first attempt of the said to be impossible 4:55 run!

  3. I have played all day and night before for two days straight it's not hard stupid but not hard
