Posted on Tuesday, February 21 @ 18:16:41 PST by Ben_SilvermanRemember the 80 year-old gaming grandma who tried to set a new world record by playing Q-Bert? What a pussy.
At least compared to possibly autistic and likely socially retarded gaming fiend Kelly Tharp of Sellersburg, Indiana. As I blog, Mr. Tharp is smack in the middle of a non-stop, three-day marathon session of Q-Bert in an attempt to beat the 22 year-old world record of 33,273,520 points on ONE quarter. That's like eating all the all-you-can-eat shrimp.
Tharp might just be the (inhu)man for the job, as he's already the proud owner of the Tapper Marathon crown. How hardcore is that? It took 18 hours. OF TAPPER.
Anyway, you can follow the "action" over at the Twin Galaxies site, if you're interested in watching someone play an old game until he passes out. Beats playing Q-Bert.
