My Mom is a book editor. She does some freelancing work, some fact-checking, and runs a blog about her work and her interest in the English language over at Dara Rochlin Book Doctor. Her interest does serve as a good dose of inspiration to me, as a lot of my passion in life revolves around the written word as well. While working on a post for her blog, she looked up a number of word-related accolades from the Guinness Book of World Records. That gave me the idea to look up a series of records on video games, since they’re obviously a large part of my life as well.
So, consider this something of an experiment I suppose. Over the next five days, I’m going to have a short post go up each day talking about a different record out of the Guinness Book. I’ll either choose them for how impressive they are, or I’ll choose them because they might have some personal story attached to them. It’ll depend I’m sure, but either way the records will hopefully be interesting for everyone seeing me talk about them as much as they’ll be interesting to me. Seems like something fun for me to do really, so I figure why not?
Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for now, so I hope all you viewers out there enjoy my Gaming Records Week.
