We’ve all heard of the merit of self-care in recent years. In fact, we’ve heard of it so many times that it might start to feel like it has become completely meaningless. The truth is, though, that we all deserve to treat ourselves every now and then.
By that, though, we mean getting a mani-pedi or going out to coffee with your girlfriends. We definitely don’t mean becoming a part of dinner. But… now that Birdie Girl has mentioned it… Okay, fine! Let’s go soak in lasagna!
Despite many believing that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, we’re here to tell you that’s absolutely wrong. In fact, just like men, a woman’s best friend is an adorable puppy to cuddle! It’s even been proven by science.
That’s right; a study actually proved that when it comes to bed companions, women don’t want hunky men, they want husky dogs. So, we’re all for calling in a doggy call instead of a booty call the next time we’re feeling lonely.
Let’s Get Down to Business
The admittedly hilarious scene that this tweet describes is the perfect example of the fact that none of us “adults” have any idea what the heck we’re doing. Instead, our games of pretend from childhood just got better playgrounds and gadgets.
Honestly, we just want to know what those guys actually decided on. Plus, now we want to hear all about the strange people that work in @-chase___’s coworking space and their unhinged business meetings.
Web of Lies
One never expects to be dragged into a world of secrets and intrigue first thing in the morning. But it looks like that’s exactly what happened to unassuming @LizHackett during her run to Starbucks.
She never thought her need for a grande pumpkin spice frappuccino would lead to her taking part in an international cover-up! Alas, that’s exactly what happened when she overheard this conversation. Her mission, should she choose to accept it…
After a long day at work, all we want is to shut our eyes for a few seconds and relax. So, it’s really no wonder that so many people catch a few Zs on their commute back home.
But, we absolutely agree with Marina that seeing people sleeping on the subway (but really, any transportation method) gives us a ton of second-hand anxiety for them. We just hope they wake up before their stop.
Ginny Hogan has really hit the nail on the head with this tweet. Seriously, ladies, look around at the men in your life: sure, they’re all that and a bag of chips. But look at them really. Then look at yourselves.
Now back to them… See what we mean? Can you honestly tell us that you don’t deserve to get at least as much as they do (if not way more) for all your hard work? We didn’t think so.
Laughter is the best medicine, right? Well… yeah, sure, let’s go with that. So, really, the best way to deal with untreated trauma is to laugh it off with a witty one-liner, yeah?
Wait, what do you mean by “no?” But what’s the point of trauma if it doesn’t make you funny? After all, the horrible things we’ve been through must have at least given us one positive thing!
Dating nowadays is quite an ordeal. For the most part, you don’t just organically meet people. Instead, you have to put time and effort into creating the perfect profile that manages to show all your best assets to possible suitors.
But, the truth is, looking back at those meticulously planned dating profiles is always a cringy experience. We don’t blame Ely for being quite shocked by her old profile pic. What’s surprising is that her husband was into this.
Okay, look, we know daily movement is good for you. We get that. But what’s with the running? Take us to a nice Zumba class, or get hooked on SoulCycle — but make us participate in walking’s horrible cousin? Yuck!
Mary brings up an excellent point — why in the world did our ancestors work so hard to claw up the food chain if not so that we’d be able to happily turn into couch potatoes? Be good apex predators and sit under the shade of some tree.
Oh, How the Turntables
Oh, how our parents hated the amount of time we spent in front of a screen as kids (even before the age of the smartphone). “Back in our day, we would play all day outside” — Sure, Mom, whatever you say.
Clearly, they had no idea that, like @TheCheish’s mom, they too would benefit from all those hours that we spent glued to our shiny computers in the early 2000s. Seriously, though, we wish they had learned the computer with us so that we wouldn’t have to be their personal IT department.
The Neverending Story
We honestly think that the most horrifying realization we had shortly after moving out of our parents’ home for the first time was that we were somehow supposed to feed ourselves every day, at least three times a day.
The horror! What’s worse is that you’re supposed to cook at least most of it, instead of ordering, in case you ever want to actually save some money. We can’t imagine how much worse it’d be having to also feed little mouths as well as our own.
We truly think it’s adorable that Emma’s brother, the very soon-to-be father, actually thought that 96 diapers were going to last the young family nearly three months. Please, nobody tell him what’s really going to happen!
Let him learn on his own and be horrified by the truth! We only wish we could see the look on his face that first day he has to change a surprising amount of diapers, and then do the math.
No Ice Cream, We Scream
As much as we might complain about them, we have to tell you the truth, little brothers are precious and should be hugged more often. Just look how wholesome and unintentionally funny Julia’s brother is.
Clearly, he’s done his research to make sure he fully understood the full scope of a woman’s emotions. While Julia might have truly been totally fine with not getting ice cream, we can wholeheartedly tell you we wouldn’t be.
They Grow Up So Fast
Teen movies might make house parties look like the greatest thing since sliced bread, but the truth is, being a good host, even to a small group of friends, is a lot more responsibility than most teenagers realize.
Clearly, @kasal_finley raised a pretty great kid. Not only did he not go completely wild when he had the chance, but he also made sure everything looked spotless for his mom. Most importantly, he learned that he really wasn’t a party animal.
Cancel Our Subscription
It truly amazes us how completely in the dark some men are when it comes to a woman’s body. Especially when it comes to men who are romantically involved with said women. Seriously, guys, go Google this stuff!
Yes, sweet Aunt Flo comes a-callin’ about every month. Yes, we hate it too. Yes, you should go out and buy us some ice cream and chocolate. Is that really so hard to learn on your own?
Star of the Show
It’s honestly kind of amazing how so much of modern women’s humor is all about therapy. We’d ask if they’re okay, but obviously, none of us are. But, until we’re emotionally healed, at least we’ll laugh about it.
Obviously, it’s not enough that we be the subject of our own therapy (although our parents do tend to crop up quite a bit); we also have to be the subject of everybody else’s therapy. And who better to mess up than our kids?
When it comes to hair, we just have to admit, guys have it so dang easy! Wear it up or down, short or long, as long as it’s looking even semi-presentable, they’re going to be perfectly fine. Us ladies, though…
When it comes to our locks, we just have to put in so much effort! Brushing with the right tool, using the correct shampoo, and finding the perfect styling products. And even after all that, we still might be mistaken for a male guest on Thanksgiving. How is that fair?!
The Fear of Mom
Parenting is no easy task. It’s all about balancing a fine line between strict and permissive, between being respected by your children and being feared. We think we know where @UhuAnya’s kids lean, and we absolutely love it!
The best part, of course, is the fact that she didn’t actually give them any reason to be worried here, except for her utter silence on the subject when she returned home. Given the fact that a caulk gun is essentially a glue gun, used to put furniture back together, Mom was just trying to solve the problem of the broken chair. You’ve got to appreciate the trolling level this mom has.
People exercise for a myriad of reasons. Some like that delicious release of endorphins. Others enjoy moving their bodies in new and interesting ways. But, let’s face it, most of us do it so we can fit into that old pair of jeans.
At the end of the day, though, there really is nothing wrong with finding motivation in something “shallow.” After all, what really matters is that we go and shake up our old bones, it really doesn’t matter why we do it.
Cry for Help
Looks like this little prodigy has managed to learn one of life’s great mysteries at the very young age of two, which is — waking up is bad. On a slightly more serious note, though, there’s a lesson to be learned here.
Learning how to ask for help to get through the day (and through life) is no easy task. But it’s no shame to ask for that help when we need it, just like this wise little kid has shown us. So, next time, just let the world know, “Help, we woke up!”
The old saying might go that “no one likes a gossip,” but we have to admit, we absolutely love them! How else are we supposed to know what’s new in Brenda and Chad’s dramatic love life?!
When it’s your gossip being aired, though… and by your own mother, no less! Yeah, that’s not as great anymore. Although, it is pretty impressive to see how much more well-connected your mom is than you ever realized. Trust us, her social life is better than yours.
It Does Matter
“Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” they say. Or “beauty comes from within.” Oh, don’t give us those old platitudes. Let’s face it, while physical attractiveness might be subjective; we can all agree that some people are pretty, and some people just aren’t.
Thankfully, beauty really isn’t the most important thing in the world. So, if we look at all the other qualities that people possess, absolutely everyone is beautiful. But until then, we’re just going to ponder over Marcia’s tweet.
Million Dollar Idea
We’ve all been there — you started dating a guy you thought would be your one true love, only to find out he was a complete dud, but only after you’ve wasted precious time on him. Honestly, Dana’s service would be amazing.
This is one crowd-funded service we’d be happy to give to. If we could just give her one little suggestion? We’d call this amazing and revolutionary service “Loosers, Keepers.”
Makes All the Difference
We all know that a humble haircut can have massive repercussions on our outward appearance — it can make or break our outfit and our self-confidence. That’s why we pay the big bucks to those fancy salons.
Unfortunately, just like the right cut can make you look your best self, a bad one can make you look 50 when you’re in your 20s, and no one wants that. Holly, we feel your pain and truly hope that you can get that mess fixed real soon.
Yes, there absolutely is a “super cute” to “couldn’t care less” pipeline when it comes to how you choose what to wear in the morning, and it directly correlates to your age. Your early 20s are full of adorable, well-thought-out ensembles.
As you near your 30s, comfort becomes key. Sure, you still look for that flattering fit, but if it doesn’t feel exactly right, it’s out. After that, thankfully, we just stop caring — which means we can wear whatever we want! Hurray!
An Eye for Muses
Poetic language can be the most beautiful and romantic thing. Until you actually pay attention to the words and take them literally, that is. Because when you do, it all becomes absolutely ridiculous.
No, you don’t want to kiss our every worry away, we’re not a rose by any other name, and you definitely can’t swim in our eyes. Sure, it’s all very pretty, but just tell us we look amazing and leave it at that.
Being a parent is so passé — it’s officially the year of the aunt energy, and we’ll tell you why. You think blondes have all the fun? Well, you’re wrong, it’s aunts! They get to hang out with adorable kids as long as they want.
Then, as soon as they want some “me time,” they give them back! How perfect is that? Also, while kids are under auntie’s care, they can teach them all the things they know their siblings wouldn’t approve of. It’s their duty!
Being surrounded by the absurdity that is extreme diet culture, we’re constantly bombarded with information about this trick or that fad. Well, we say — no more! No more wasting an hour of our lives listening to celebs telling us what we should or shouldn’t eat!
Especially not from celebrities that we know for a fact aren’t dietitians or have any idea what they’re talking about. Look, we’ll be happy to take acting lessons from A-listers like Paltrow but leave the food talk to the actual pros.
When it comes to salad dressings, there’s no contest, that perfect blend of mayonnaise and chili (plus seasonings), is the ultimate thing to finish off our salads in style. But did you ever wonder where the name comes from? Fun fact, no islands died in the making of Thousand Islands dressing.
Sadly, the truth is a lot more boring. It’s just named after the region where it was invented — the upper St. Lawrence River between the US and Canada, where there are literally a thousand tiny islands (1,894, to be exact).
The Ugly Truth
Finding a date for a Friday night is hard enough, so do you seriously mean to tell us that finding someone to spend the rest of your life with is even more work? How great would it be if someone else did all that work for you?
What if someone could, with the help of your information, find someone that’d work perfectly just for you? Seriously, can someone just create a service? Oh, wait… Matchmaking doesn’t really work either!!!
Call the Manager
Perched with their nose up in their nest, the wild Karens scan the mall’s floor, looking for trouble, hunting for their preferred prey, the vulnerable teen shop worker. Once spotted, they make their way, the sound of their clogs swallowed by the hum of the environment.
Finally, exactly when the shop worker is busy helping three separate customers, the Karens pounce upon their unsuspecting prey with their loud and frightening calls of “I want to speak to the manager!” Isn’t nature fascinating?
Wait Until She Learns About Bacon
Ah, the modern world! Of course, we love our technology, our comforts, and the fact that we can get everything we’re craving at a moment’s notice at the closest store. Everything’s just really convenient, isn’t it?
This is why it’s so inconvenient when our kids ask such difficult-to-answer questions. On the one hand, of course, we want to be truthful with them. On the other hand, this little truth is going to be a lot more than they bargained for.
Make a Wish
Remember as a kid waking up the morning of your birthday, knowing that you were going to have an incredible day filled with friends and family, and, most importantly, tons and tons of presents that you precisely requested?
If only we still knew exactly what we wanted for our birthday! Seriously, even as grown-ups, we still love our birthdays (yes, even though it means we’re getting old). But we absolutely hate being asked what we want!
As a teen, the worst part of holiday dinners would be being stuck with the babies at the kids’ table. Oh, how we longed for the day we’d be moved to the big adult table, where everything seemed so grown up and interesting.
But, you know what we learned once we moved there? It really wasn’t as interesting as we thought it’d be. In fact, we’d much rather spend Thanksgiving chatting with our younger cousins, asking them who their favorite superhero is!
We might not like to admit it, but our choice of a romantic partner isn’t just about love. As unsavory as it might sound, choosing the right partner is very much a status symbol — after all, you can’t just bring anyone home to the parents.
So, yes, make sure you invest in a real, approved fiancé from the French Riviera (that means lots of European trips in your honeymoon future). Besides, a sparkling boyfriend just sounds like a certain angsty vampire who sparkles in the sun.
Remember the good old days when Mom would practically beg us to talk to her and let her know how our day has been? How fantastic was it when she’d be the one hoping for our attention?
Now that the tables have turned, all we want is for Mommy to pick up the phone and listen to all our problems. Can we please just get Mom’s attention for just five minutes? Since when is she so busy?!
You know what really grinds our gears? The fact that actually putting in the work and taking care of yourself actually does work! How seriously annoying and awful is that?
Alright, fine! You wore us down! We’ll do the stupid yoga, we’ll drink eight cups of stupid water, and avoid delicious fizzy drinks, and we’ll wash our face twice every day. Happy now?
The Road Not Taken
You either find yourself dating Pete Davidson, or live long enough to have a baby with Nick Cannon, right? At least, that’s what it feels like when it comes to every eligible Hollywood leading lady.
Amazingly, we do know of one celeb who managed to almost hit both those goals — Kim Kardashian! That’s right, while Kim K’s relationship with Pete Davidson had made headlines in recent years, she also dated Nick Cannon way back in 2006.
Talk to the Hand
Look, obviously, there’s nothing wrong with being introverted or extroverted, as long as it’s actually your personality that’s making you lean one way or the other, and not… well… some stupid guy!
Of course, Ginny Hogan is the one to perfectly sum up exactly how we feel whenever guys decide to blame us for them not being interesting and nice enough to talk to. We guess we’ll keep being described as “introverted” by guys.
Since the beginning of time, the oldest people in society were given a place of honor in the social order — that of wisened advisors to the youngsters, onto which they could impart their priceless knowledge accumulated over a lifetime.
How lucky is Colleen’s boyfriend, then, that he gets all her extra wisdom right away? This is one idea we’re definitely borrowing — from now on, anyone that’s even a day younger than us must hear all our ancient knowledge.
We can’t decide if this is an absolutely brilliant sales tactic or if it’s downright forgetful. Okay, yeah, most likely it just completely slipped her mind that @sixfootcandy has been to her before. Still, you’ve got to admire her guts.
Or, maybe, the nail lady is just so used to saying this to every single customer that it just kind of slipped out. Either way, it might just be time to find a new manicurist who can recognize her own handiwork.
Dog or Cat?
Probably since the very first cave people domesticated wild animals, the debate about whether you’re a dog or a cat person has been raging on. It’s like we instinctively know that there’s a pretty big difference in personality between those who love canines and those who prefer felines.
But, whether you’re more into barks or like the sounds of meows better, the truly important lesson here is that rescuing a defenseless animal and bringing them home is always a good thing. We wonder, what does it say about those who like both?
Hot Cop Alert
Whether it’s Mariska Hargitay as the amazing Olivia Benson in Law & Order: SVU, Kate Beckett, played by Stana Katic, in the hilarious Castle, or any other stoic leading lady, we all know they’re the only reason we watch these silly cop shows.
There’s just something about emotionally unavailable, kick-butt-take-names women in power that makes us want to be just like them when we grow up. Can we please just get more shows and seasons with them?
We’ve All Been There
Truthfully, we’ve all been there. For no logical reason, we all still feel a sting of shame wherever we’re reminded of blunders from the past. It’s illogical because we’re well aware that nobody else could possibly remember those awkward moments.
People have their own lives to worry about, time has passed, and we can absolutely guarantee that no one recalls the time you passed gas in seventh grade. Besides, it’s not as if no one else has their own embarrassing memories!
Don’t deny it — we all know you’re still using that old password you thought up way back in middle school when you needed an email address to get an account on Club Penguin or something like it.
So, if you’re still using PrincessSparklesTheGreat96 or OptimusPrimeRulz20 as your password for every single account (including your bank’s internet services), you might want to consider changing that ASAP.
30+ World Records Set By Gamers
As video games have become more advanced and more popular, it seems like there are no limits to what gamers can accomplish. Whether it’s to rise to the challenge of a speedrun, gather the most collectibles, or come up with something that no one else would, there’s no shortage of records set by gamers. These are just a sample of the world records gamers have set.
The World’s Largest Game Boy
When the Game Boy released in 1989, it would change the landscape of gaming for years to come. It’s even the first console that many of today’s gamers fell in love with games on.
Ilhan Ünal was a particularly dedicated fan of the Game Boy. To show his love for the system, he debuted a massive console in 2016. The Game Boy ended up being 1.01 meters tall and could successfully play traditional Game Boy cartridges. It only spent a month in development too!
Largest Competitive Pokémon Family
Video games are great alone but they can also really bring people together. This particular family even came together to create the largest competitive Pokémon family.
The Arnold Family is from Frankfort, Illinois and they’re almost all competitive Pokémon gamers. This includes the couple Linda and Glenn Arnold as well as their children David, Ryan, and Grace. All five of them have taken on competitors in Pokémon Video Game Championships and earned their title as the largest competitive Pokémon family.
Most Video Game Commemorative Coins
Most games have a system of collectibles, either as a bonus side quest or to use as currency. These are even among the most recognizable collectibles across games.
Wade Speaks took the time to make this quest for coins real by collecting real-life commemorative coins for video games. The mission started in 2013 and by 2019, Speaks had collected a record-breaking 1,019 coins. Since then, he’s teamed up with Signature Coins to make a commemorative coin of his own.
Youngest Pro Gamer
With the rise of e-sports and the wide audiences that streamers bring in today, it’s more likely than ever that someone could show their skills as a professional gamer.
How old do you have to be to start one of these careers? Well, if you ask Viktor De Leon III, better known as Lil Poison, not very old at all! Born in 1998, the gamer competed in his first Halo tournament at four years old. At seven, he signed with Major League Games, breaking the world record.
Longest Final Fantasy Marathon
Final Fantasy games are well-loved for a variety of reasons. Not only are most of them well-done with engaging gameplay and thrilling stories but they’re highly replayable.
This makes them a great game to pick if you want to set the record for a video game marathon. In 2017, a gamer in Spain named Aarón González Santomé chose them for just that purpose. He specifically sat down with Final Fantasy X/X-2 to break the record with a time of over 40 hours.
Most Lucrative Single-Player Win
There are few people who are more competitive than an e-sports gamer. Contrary to popular belief, they spend a lot of time training to win big and earn their spot in the limelight.
With this in mind, it makes winning a tournament or championship all the more rewarding. Not to mention, cash prizes don’t hurt as an incentive either. In 2019, 100 gamers competed in a Fortnite tournament. Kyle Giersdorf, 16, won the prize of $3 million which also happened to set the record for a single-player payout.
MOst QuadStick Mouth-Operated Joystick Victories
Video games appeal to a wide audience and gamers never fail to impress with their skills. One particular gamer, Rocky Stoutenburgh, made his mark with a record in Fortnite.
Paralyzed from the neck down, though, Stoutenburgh doesn’t rely on the standard controller or keyboard to make his way to the top. Instead, he uses a QuadStick Mouth-Operated Joystick to control the game. With this controller, he holds records for both the most Fortnite victories and the most eliminations in a single Battle Royale.
Most Liscensed Music in a Game
There’s nothing that quite compliments clever level designs and engaging action like the right song. Today, licensed music is part of the template for most games.
That being said, there is a limit to how many licensed songs go into a game. After all, since they’re licensed, it isn’t as easy or as cheap as taking a song you like and editing it in. If you want a wide library of licensed music to enjoy in-game, Midnight Club: Los Angeles holds the record.
Biggest Arcade Cabinet Ever
Arcades were once a go-to location for people who wanted to enjoy video games. Even as in-home systems became more popular, you can still find arcades to enjoy the classics.
With their dwindling numbers, however, there are gamers who try to recreate the nostalgic environment. One gamer, Jason Camberis, made a unique choice. He made the biggest arcade cabinet in existence and they’re even for sale for a breathtaking $100,000. With an emulator within, there are plenty of game options too.
Fastest Blindfolded Super Mario Run
There are few games that change the industry like Mario. As such, it’s no surprise that there are plenty of impressive records associated with gamers who love the iconic figure.
Among the most impressive record that someone earned in Super Mario World was recorded in 2017. That’s when katun24 beat the game not only with a staggering time but while blindfolded the whole time. It only took them 13 minutes and 31 seconds which beat the old record held by PangeaPanga by over two minutes.
Most Lara Croft Cosplayers
The amazing thing about video games is that they’ve managed to go beyond their original medium. Today, there are movies, shows, conventions, and, of course, cosplayers showcasing their favorites.
For those that love the classic series Tomb Raider, this record is pretty niche. In 2018, a group of 316 cosplayers broke the world record for the most Lara Croft cosplayers gathered in one place. Interestingly, this feat was as an event for the rebooted movie, not one of the games.
Rarest Mario Cartridge
Like many vintage items, retro video games have enjoyed high sales when they’re finally placed up for sale. Often, the rarer an item is, the more it sells for.
The most expensive record title for Mario games belongs to a copy of Super Mario Bros. that went for $100,000 but this isn’t the rarest. The rarest Mario cartridge that any gamer would struggle to get their hands on is the Nintendo Campus Challenge cartridge. There’s only one copy that sold for $20,000 in 2009.
Longest Dance Marathon
Dance marathons used to be a fairly common concept. Today, though, the tradition actually has a modern update. Why not use a dancing video game for a dance marathon?
In 2015, a teacher named Carrie Swidecki took to Twitch and broke the record playing Just Dance. While raising money for the charity event ExtraLife4Kids, Swidecki danced for a full 138 hours and 34 seconds, all streamed online. Interestingly, this also gives her the longest video game marathon in general too!
Fastest Final Fantasy VII Playthrough
When it comes to speedrunning games, you have to be talented, strategic, and well-informed about the game. It isn’t something that comes easily, especially with distractions.
When it comes to a famous game like Final Fantasy VII, the competition for speedrunning is stiff. Still, with all the collectibles and challenging enemies, it’s easy to get sidetracked or lose time. Most players can expect at least 25 hours of gameplay out of it but Luzbelheim finished in only 6:59:56.
Longest Game of Football Manager
For gamers who love sports, there is no shortage of games that can help you live out your athletic dreams. Among them is the game Football Manager.
This game, as the name suggests, allows the player to manage their own team. In Football Manager 2017, Sepp Hedel clocked a total in-game 333 years as a manager. In real-time, that’s 81 days and 20 hours. The feat earned them the title of the longest single game of Football Manager.
The Most Speedruns for a Game
Naturally, some games are more well-known than others. So, it only makes sense that certain games would take center stage to speedrunners looking to show that they’re the best.
If you want to know which title gamers are trying to speedrun the most, the honor belongs to none other than Super Mario 64. This includes over 6,700 speedruns. The fastest time belongs to a gamer from Spain named Cheese who won all 120 stars in an hour and 39 minutes.
The Most Recognizable Video Game Character
There are certain characters that gamers see a lot. This isn’t just because they play one game a lot but because those characters seem to be everywhere, even outside their franchise.
According to Guinness World Records, Mario is actually the most ubiquitous video character of all time. In other words, he’s everywhere. The overall-clad plumber has graced 215 games. This includes his own games as the main character as well as appearing in other games in some capacity, including Easter eggs of the iconic mascot.
Most Expansive Collection
When it comes to gaming, there are a lot of options out there when you’re looking for something to play. That’s why it’s always exciting to get a new game to add to your collection.
This particular gamer was dedicated to growing their collection so much that they even earned a record. In 2019, it was announced that Antonio Monteiro, from Texas, held the world record with a library of 20,139 games. It took eight days to count every game!
Biggest 24-Hour Rhythm Game Relay
Back in 2009, Activision launched Guitar Hero 5 in their growing line of similar rhythm games. To celebrate the launch, Activision decided to go big which also helped garner attention.
Actually, several European branches of Activision held guitar relays in the game but Activision Italy broke the record, in the end. The publisher managed to get 594 gamers to play the game at the same time in a 24-hour relay. The event broke records and became the most players in a 24-hour guitar rhythm game relay.
Largest Sandbox World
Video games started from humble beginnings but today, they’re larger than life. This is most evident in sandbox games that allow the player to freely explore and interact with the world.
The most famous sandbox game is easily Grand Theft Auto but it doesn’t have the accolade of being the largest sandbox game. That world record is actually held by Eidos’ Just Cause. The sandbox offers gamers more than 250,000 acres in-game to explore.
Fastest Speedrun of Breath of the Wild
When The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild released, fans new and old were excited to give it a try. With a slew of new mechanics, it challenged what gamers thought of a Zelda game as.
One particular gamer managed to get one of the most sought-after records for this game through speedrunning. It’s important to note that this particular speed run is especially impressive because SpecsNStats not only completed the game in 25:24:57 but beat the game including total completion!
Longest Minecraft Tunnel in Creative Mode
There are few games that have experienced the same meteoric rise in popularity as Minecraft. It’s a game that’s accessible to everyone too, whether you prefer to survive or just create.
Of all the gamers who have dedicated seemingly endless hours to the game, only one earned this record. In 2017, YouTuber ItzEpicGeorge created the longest Minecraft tunnel while in creative mode. The tunnel was 62 miles long or about 100,000 in-game blocks. This would take other players seven hours just to pass through.
Highest Xbox GamerScore
Xbox allows gamers to show their stuff by earning points based on completing games and the tasks within them. The higher your score, the more accomplished you are.
The title of the highest Xbox GamerScore belongs to Raymond Cox or Stallion83. Over the years, the player has managed to round up more than two million points. This means that Cox must have dedicated a lot of his life to gaming! To make an estimate, he must have finished around 2,000 games completely.
Longest Resident Evil Marathon
Horror games are designed to be more than challenging but anxiety-inducing as well. After all, it’s the tension of a horror movie but with an interactive element thrown in.
That doesn’t stop gamers from a good horror game marathon, though. Lorenzo Ramondetti actually has the marathon for a game run time of 36:29:40. During the marathon, he played both Resident Evil 4 and Resident Evil 5. That’s a lot of added tension to the practice of a game marathon which is already pretty draining.
Most Successful Crowdfunding
There are a lot of instances in video gaming history that fans jump in to get a new game out to the public. As a matter of fact, crowdfunding for development is a fairly common practice.
Which game has crowdfunded the most money? That would be Star Citizen. The game was first announced in 2012 and crowdfunding for its development started shortly after. However, you still aren’t able to play it. Despite crowdfunding a staggering sum of more than $218 million, the game has been delayed multiple times.
Most PlayStation Trophies
If you want to show off all that you’ve done in your favorite PlayStation games, look no further than trophies. Collecting all of these is a sure way to master the games you love.
That’s because these trophies take a lot of skill and a lot of time to learn. As for the most trophies, that honor goes to a PlayStation user named Roughdawg4. This gamer has more than 74,000 trophies. This puts them at level 266 and a score of over 2.5 million.
The First to Be Hogglike
Nidhogg 2 released on the PlayStation 4 on August 15, 2017. To make the stakes a little higher, the developers included a trophy for those gamers that really wanted a challenge out of the title.
The trophy in question is titled “Hogglike” as a play on the term “Godlike.” The trophy requires gamers to win completely without dying. This is made harder because, if you aren’t familiar with the game, you can die in a single hit. By February 23, 2018, someone finally won the trophy.
Largest Final Fantasy Collection
If you hear the phrase “role-playing game,” you wouldn’t be alone if you automatically thought of the Final Fantasy franchise. These games are considered so iconic for a reason!
Still, the average fan would pale in comparison to Tai-Ting Tseng. He’s the world record holder for owning the biggest collection of Final Fantasy merchandise. This includes everything from CDs of the game’s soundtrack to collectible toys. In total, he has more than 3,700 unique collectibles.
Most Expensive Game Bundle
If you’re even casually into gaming, you know that it’s a practice that can get expensive. This is especially true if you’re interested in the special editions of new games.
There are certain games that you may even need to carefully consider your budget before splurging on. Kingdom Hearts III made headlines for a few hundred dollars for the limited edition copy. Yet, the Dying Light Spotlight Edition was even more than that. For the whole package, you would have needed a spare $10 million.
Fastest Portal Speedrun
In 2007, the world was introduced to what would become one of the most popular games in years to come. At this point, there are few people – gamers and otherwise – who haven’t heard of Portal.
The game was accessible because it wasn’t hard as nails as a game like Dark Souls tries to be. Instead, it drew gamers in with its unique mechanics, quirky dialogue, and memorable characters. Still, it’s shocking that Cody Miller managed to finish it in only 24 minutes and 37 seconds.
Longest World of Warcraft Marathon
If there’s one thing that World of Warcraft is known for, it’s sucking players into long sessions. Yet, there are still some gamers who stand out for how long they play, even among stiff competition.
The honor of the longest video game marathon of playing World of Warcraft was earned by Ian Haimes in 2017. In all, the gamer played the session in Azeroth for a full 32 hours and 36 minutes. That’s a lot of dedication to keep going for that long!
Most Alternative Control Methods to Win
Dark Souls is a series renowned for its difficulty level. The game is meant to be challenging and there have been plenty of gamers who have risen to that challenge and beat the game.
However, few gamers have mastered the game as bearzly did in 2016. They set a record for the most alternative control methods used to beat Dark Souls. Despite being hard enough with a standard controller, they beat it with items like a steering wheel, voice control, and even the bongo drum made for Donkey Konga.
Highest Rated Game of All Time
Just like albums or movies, video games are subject to reviews both from fans and critics. These reviews are often crucial in determining how successful a game is and will be.
There is one game that stands out from the rest. According to Metacritic, this honor goes to The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time. A classic title, the game sits at a rating of 99 out of 100 on Metacritic with the remake for the 3DS sits slightly lower at a still-impressive 94.
Longest One-Handed Combo
Any gamer who loves Dragon Ball Z recognizes the video game adaptation, Dragon Ball FighterZ. It follows a lot of the features standard for a fighting game with stylings reminiscent of the anime.
One particularly determined gamer is known simply as “Desk.” In 2018, they accomplished a pretty specific world record of the highest hit-combo in the game with one hand. With only their left hand, they performed a 441-hit combo in the video.
Most Goals Scored in Rocket League
Rocket League is a team-based game with a pretty zany premise. The main goal of the game is to win soccer matches but instead of individual players, the players are cars.
The game puts a lot of emphasis on teamwork and you’d be pretty lucky for Ryan Howard to be on your team of gamers. This is because he actually holds the world record for the most goals scored in a single game of Rocket League. In all, he earned 141 goals.
