The Guinness World Records has a category that is dedicated to the gaming industry. Video games have come a long way in the past few decades.
In 1982, Atari’s popular Asteroids arcade game was released. It is still a popular game today. In 1984, Nintendo released Mario Bros., a 2D side-scrolling “platform” game. It went on to become one of the most popular video games of all time. In 1991, the Super Nintendo Entertainment System (SNES) was released and was one of the best-selling video game consoles of all time. In 1995, the PlayStation was released and is one of the three best-selling video game consoles of all time. Nintendo’s Wii, which was released in 2006, was the first console with motion controls for players to use while gaming.
With the increase in the technology of gaming, the count of world records in gaming increased exponentially.
Here is the list of Guinness World Records in the gaming category.
Guinness Gaming World Records #1 “RockyNoHands”
Rocky Stoutenburgh, or “RockyNoHands”, is a legend in the gaming world. Especially when it comes to Fortnite. He has made it into Guinness World Records 2020 for achieving most Victory Royales in Fortnite using a QuadStick mouth-operated joystick and most eliminations in a Fortnite Battle Royale using a QuadStick mouth-operated joystick. He’s even made the Guinness World Records 2020 Gamer’s Edition for these feats.
He got injured from a fall in 2006 and since then he is paralyzed from the neck down. Yet, his love of video games wins the fight with quitting. He is a legend for smashing records. You can watch his Twitch channel.
Guinness Gaming World Records #2 Fortnite World Cup World Record Bonanza
It has been a year since Fortnite has gone live and has allowed gamers to get an escape from the hardships of their realities. Thousands of people have played the game and have become extremely competitive games.
The Fortnite World Cup 2019 is the first of its kind. The competition is designed for the best players of the world, with the hopes of generating an environment where they can compete at their highest levels. One of the things to take notice of about the tournament is the number of records set during the final rounds.
The players competed in many different modes – Solo, Duos, and Squads – but if you look at the video game mode types, several records were set. For example, the Solo game mode was dominated by the player Fuzzy, who has previously won other competitions. He set a record by earning $1 million dollars.
One player that has reached this category is Kyle ‘Bugha’ Giersdorf. He’s the first Solo player to become the World Champion of Fortnite. He won the $3 million grand prize. Bugha is the kind of player that always keeps calm and doesn’t attack other players unless it’s necessary for him to win. He also understands how to play the game strategically in order to win. The 16-year-old teen has proven to be the best in the world at Fortnite.
Guinness Gaming World Records #3 Most Video Game Voice Over Performance
Charles Martinet is the voice of Mario. Mario is a video game character created by Nintendo. The original Super Mario Bros. game launched in 1985 was the first video game in which Mario would be featured. Mario is most known for his catchphrase, “It’s-a-me, Mario!” He has been given many aliases throughout the years, such as “One-Man-Band” for his ability to play several instruments, “Mecha-Mario” for his robotic figure, or “Mr. Video Game” for being Nintendo’s most iconic character.
He was the voice of Mario for 106 different video games. With his performance, he becomes a world record holder.
Speedrunning The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
Torje Amundsen successfully completed The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time in 16 minutes 5366 seconds, beating the previous speedrunning record by over a minute. The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time is a difficult game, especially for speedrunners.
He was able to do this through his dedication and perseverance. Training is crucial for this, but Torje follows a strict regimen in order to get the most out of his time. He starts off by practicing for hours at a time, swimming, running to keep up his stamina, and trying to find ways to memorize the game to make it easier to know where to go in the game.
This is an unimaginable amount of time that can be saved by playing the game as fast as possible, with the ultimate goal to beat the game before the clock expires. Torje is not the only person to demonstrate this sharpened skill, however, as speedrunning has gained popularity in recent years. Torje has practiced his skills through months of rigorous training, dedication to his craft, and many hours of game time — all for this one moment to beat the game before time expires.
