It looks like we have a new world record holder that has been verified by the Guinness Book of World Records when it comes to the Dance Dance Revolution game. Carrie Swidecki actually spent the better part of 15 plus hours, holding the new record of 15 hours, 17 minutes and 44 seconds for the Longest Marathon on a Dance/Rhythm Game. This 35-year-old public school teacher hails from Bakersfield, California, and surpassed the previous record by quite a margin, since it stood at 13 hours, 33 minutes and 56 seconds before.
According to Carrie, “I couldn’t be more excited to have broken the Guinness World Record through exergaming. I started playing DanceDanceRevolution 10 years ago, and when I saw that it was helping me become more physically fit, I integrated it into my physical education program at school and the students love it. Since then, I’ve become more active, lost 75 pounds and set a new world record!”
I guess the Nintendo Wii should have some sort of game that allows gamers to play it indefinitely, such as unlimited Wii Sports rounds, so that someone else can wear a pair of diapers and go the distance to etch their names in immortality.
