Scarface: The World is Yours was a multi-platform game released on October 10, 2006 by Radical Entertainment under the published by Sierra Entertainment and distributed by Vivendi Games.  It’s a Grand Theft Auto inspired third-person action game based on the 1983 Brian De Palma movie Scarface. According to IGN, “The Scarface video game creates a gameplay environment that authentically recreates the historical time period of the film, touching on politics, news items and events of the day.”

Why did this game receive a Guinness World Record for its swearing?  Well… During the course of the game’s 15-hour story there are about 31,000 lines of dialogue.  Apparently,  the f-word alone is used 5,688 times in just this timespan alone.

I tend to swear pretty often in casual conversation with my friends, but if I was that bad about it I know my parents would be ready to wash my mouth out with soap, that’s for sure.
