Wanna know what you have to do to be the best? The new Guinness World Records 2015 Gamer’s Edition hosts a diverse listing of various gaming records. Wanna have the largest Tomb Raider memorabilia collection in the world? You’ll have to beat Rodrigo Martin Santos, who owns 2,383 Tomb Raider-related items. That’s personally not one I would go for, but if that’s your goal, I wish you well.
Other records covered include:
- Rarest Legend of Zelda series game: A copy of The Legend of Zelda, thought to be a prototype, sold in August 2013 on eBay for $55,000.
- Oldest gaming voice actor: Christopher Lee played Saruman in LEGO: The Hobbit, which debuted April 8, 2014, aged 91 year, 314 days.
- First video game character featured in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade: Sonic the Hedgehog was the first character to receive this honor, debuting in 1993. Strong winds blew the balloon into a lamp post and it was punctured, which was a peek into the future of the series.
- Tons more!
I actually like these books. They’re great for a short read and I keep one by my toilet. There’s a lot of cool info, and each entry has the release date for the next game in the series (if applicable).
Guinness World Records 2015 Gamer’s Edition is available now and retails for $14.99, but it’s on sale now for $9.07 on Amazon.
