Guinness is poised to release a new series of record books with specific themes, and the first one is titled Guinness World Records Videogame Edition 2008. The tome will include stats on "which pro gamers earn the most money," "fastest times," "sales figures," and this perplexing nugget: "the single highest score ever achieved in a game." Really? It seems like anyone could easily beat that record by creating their own game with ridiculous scoring. ("Press 'x' to score eleventy bajillion points, to the power of infinity.") But who are we to criticize? We should just be psyched that somebody's making us feel like we're achieving something by spending the next month with a bag of chocolate-covered pretzels and Super Paper Mario.
