There are thousands of video game records out there to set. For example, some of the simplest ones have little to do with skill. “Lil Poison” aka Victor De Leon III became the youngest professional gamer in history at age four. Then Shirley Curry became the oldest YouTube Gamer with a fanbase at age 81! Those are the simpler ones, and it’s likely you won’t beat them just yet.
Others that you won’t soon beat involve so much time, you’d have to be a kid on summer break to beat them. Who has time to set off over 3,000,000 Minecraft TNT simultaneously? Yep, it was done! While that may overwhelm you, there are a few records that are within your reach. And you were always told gaming wouldn’t get you anywhere.
Fastest Segmented Completion of Final Fantasy VII
A segmented completion of a game means that the player completes the game, but not in one sitting. Back in 2013, a man known as Kynos did this with Final Fantasy VII in 6 hours 44 minutes 49 seconds on the PC version. SpeedDemosArchive.com verified this and it was added to the Guinness Book of World Records shortly after.
While Kyonos’ record is amazing, it’s definitely something hardcore speed-runners would love to challenge themselves to beat.
Most Alternative Control Methods Used to Complete Dark Souls
Dark Souls is often called the hardest game in existence. Few can actually complete it, which makes it the perfect tool for try-hards trying to break records. Benjamin Gwin decided he’d finish the game in the craziest ways possible. He used nine different methods including a Rock Band guitar peripheral, Rock Band drum kit, Rock Band piano, Donkey Konga bongo drum, microphone (using voice control only), Wiimote, dance mat, and a steering wheel.
This was all done on the PC, so if you can one-up him and use another alternate method, you’d hold this obscure title in no time. But you better hurry, because he’s currently trying to complete it with a bunch of bananas. Don’t even ask…
Longest Videogame Marathon on World Of Warcraft
The longest videogame marathon playing World of Warcraft is 29 hours 31 minutes and was achieved by Hecaterina Kinumi Iglesias aka Kinumi Cati in Vigo, Spain. This means she sat on her PC and didn’t stop playing until the record was broken. I’m sleepy just thinking about it!
“I always wanted to become a singer and I also love videogames,” Hecaterina told Guinness. “To raise my profile among young people I thought I’d try to set some records for my gaming. My YouTube channel shows some of my singing performances and also reflects my passion for videogames and Japanese culture in general.”
If this seems like too much for you to handle, then try another game whose record is easier to beat. Maybe Candy Crush Saga is more your style.
Most User-Created Levels Played in One Day
There are many games that allow users to create levels, a more popular one being Little Big Planet. The most levels played in one twenty-four-hour period is 272. We assume that this means complete levels, but the record is set as “played” leaving much to question. If you’d like to beat this one, we assume it really wouldn’t be too difficult at all.
Most Wolves Tamed With 64 Bones In “Minecraft”
How specific can you be? User Daniel Garcia tamed a total of 33 wolves with 64 bones. Some say that it’s luck, but he claims it’s an incredible record to behold. Most Minecraft fans claim that they could beat it in one sitting, yet no one has done so yet. Will you be the first?
Longest Time Playing A Video Game with One Quarter
How long can you play a game on a quarter? Five minutes? Thirty? Likely, not very long. But a man named John Salter casually put a quarter into his Armor Attack arcade cabinet and made history! He ended up lasting for 85 hours 16 minutes playing Armor Attack. Since it was live-streamed, we have proof that the record was broken. He even broke the high score with 2,211,990 points, something that hadn’t been done since the ‘80s.
Highest Score on Temple Run
This one is great because everyone has played Temple Run before. As far as anyone knows, the highest score ever achieved on Temple Run is 136,358,478 and was earned by ????????? in 2013. While others claim to have gotten higher, they haven’t recorded it. If you can outdo this man, then that’s one easy record to break.
Most Video Game Consoles Played in One Minute
For those who collect consoles, this one gets you on Record Setter in nothing flat. The previous record for most consoles played in one minute is 9, set by Jimmy Fallon (yes, that Jimmy Fallon). But Ryan Sullivan broke it by hitting 13. And no, you don’t have to play for very long at all, so all you gotta do is pick up the controller and move! There are small guidelines, but nothing a gamer can’t overcome.
Highest Survived Fall on A Solid Block In “Minecraft”
You probably believe you’ve already beaten this record, and there’s a good chance you have accidentally done so. But the highest “recorded” record is 1,000,000 meters and it was broken by Ima10yearoldboy with the previous record holder hitting 100,000. Now that’s quite the difference. The fall took minutes to record and showed him flying through the air. What’s with all of these Minecraft records?
How would you feel if you had the most Solo Wins in Fortnite…ever? Pretty darn good. Well, according to Fortnite Tracker, AlexRamiGaming has 2,753 as of 4/5/2018. The record is surely soon to be broken, but since he’s almost 1,000 wins ahead of everyone else, he could hold it for quite some time. That is…if you don’t surpass him.
Highest Score In “World’s Fastest Tapper”
We all know that video games take some quick fingers and reaction time. World’s Fastest Tapper is a tool used to test those skills. An English man by the name of HARRIS make it to 839 points, meaning he clicked 839 times in one minutes. If you can surpass him, then submit your score to Record Setter!

Fastest 10-Man Smash In “Super Smash Bros.”
Smash games with more than a few enemies usually take tens of minutes. But Samuel Webb completed one in 5.33 seconds. He defeated ten CPUs in five seconds! That’s some skill and it was all done with the lovely Rosalia. But hey, you can use whoever you want!
Fastest Ocarina of Time Speedrun
Speedruns are very popular amongst gamers, and Ocarina of Time is one of the most popular games to speedrun. According to Speedrun.com, the quickest anyone has completed Ocarina of Time is in 17 minutes and 7 seconds. It was done by skater882297. It seems every few weeks, someone finds a way to shorten the time by a few seconds. Before we know it, someone will find a way to finish the game in seconds rather than minutes.
Most Nintendo 64 Cartridges Held Upside Down in One Hand at Once
For those with no actual gaming skills, this one is for you! If you have big, nimble hands, then all you have to do is record yourself holding 18 N64 cartridges in one hand…upside down. Because James McSweeney can only hold 17, and he’s the record setter here. Notice that it’s not DS games that everyone is using. How many of those can you hold? 300?
Fastest Marriage in Skyrim
Wise men say only fools rush in, but right now, the fastest anyone has ever gotten married in Skyrim is in 3:37. It was done Twitch streamer 5exual_Tyrannosaurus. He also holds the record for completing the main story in 33 minutes. But come on, that’s nothing compared to that quick marriage. Dating is boring, anyway.
Most Cars Stolen in One Minute
We’re not talking GTA here, but rather Saints Row. The current record for “grand theft autos” is 11 vehicles in just 60 seconds in Saints Row: The Third. The truth is, it isn’t a rough record to beat…but it’s one no one even wants to beat. Now, that’s a great place for the laziest gamers to start if they want to get their name out there. Who’s ready to steal some cars?
