Okan Kaya, an Australian sales manager from Sydney, has set a new world record for the longest consecutive gaming session, racking up 122 hours playing the recently-released Black Ops II.

It's a feat with a disclaimer, though: as Wired reports, he didn't really play for 122 hours in a row. Because the human body would, well, die were that the case, Kaya was allowed to either take a ten-minute break every hour, or bank those breaks into larger blocks where he could get some sleep.


It took him "more than" five days (ie, around six, since he started on November 13) to achieve the feat, though, so he didn't rest for long. For his troubles he not only now owns a Guinness World Record, but he also, if only temporarily, rose to 37th place on Black Ops II's leaderboards.
