David Scherer, an Austin Peay State University honors student broke the world record for playing GTA IV longer than anyone else in the world. Scherer broke the previous record of 40 hours and 21 minutes (set by an Indian equity broker) on Tuesday at 4:22 am.
The 19-year-old started on Sunday afternoon, and he plans to keep playing. He doesn’t know when he’ll stop. Scherer also said he took one less bathroom break that the previous record-setter, meaning he only went three times in 40+ hours.
