Chirantan Patnaik has successfully broken the current world record made by a US citizen last year for the longest continuous play session on 'Grand Theft Auto IV' of 28 hours and 1 minute.

An official of Guinness World Records told reporters from London that Patnaik's endeavour, made in the presence of independent observers and under public scrutiny last month, was recently verified by them.

"The longest continuous play session on Grand Theft Auto IV
is 40 hours 20 minutes, by Chirantan Patnaik (India), at the offices of the gaming blog NeuralChaos.com from 4-6 September 2009," Karolina Thelin, PR executive of Guinness World Records said.

With support from from online gaming portal Zapak.com, Patnaik began playing the game at his Mumbai residence from 10 am on September 4 and ended at around 2 am on September 6.


That said, what's the longest you've sat and played GTAIV in one continuous setting. You can check this under your stats menu.

I think mine is just shy of five hours. But I also have a life.

Why not just leave the game on for that long. Unless someone watched over you for 28 hours, it's so easy to beat the record without even being at the controller.

Guinness is required to have someone watch you the entire time until the record is beaten. That excludes food and piss breaks, which is bullshit because on all of my marathons, I've eaten while playing, and I never need to use the restroom more than twice a day...

Massacre, you make me look like a rational, moral, kind person.

Massacre - What you've just posted is sick and disturbing...

When Massacre is around, everything is violated... Whether it likes it or not.

Whenever I think of "human resources" Massacre immediately springs to mind.
