The 38-year-old Manhattan resident, George Leutz, has broken a world record by playing the iconic video game Q*bert for 84 hours and 48 minutes on a single credit. The accomplishment — if that’s the right term — took place at Richie Knucklez Arcade Games, in Hunterdon, New Jersey.
According to an article by the Hunterdon County Democrat and published on NJ.com, Leutz, who was citing the Guinness World Record rules, claims he was able to take five minutes of rest for every hour of play. But because pausing the game wasn’t an option, the way to keep the game going was by amassing enough “lives” so it didn’t end during the downtime. In the arcade classic, the orange character Q*bert must change cubes in a pyramid to a specific color by jumping on them, while staying clear of enemies.
