The Guinness World Records 2010 Gamer's Edition is now available, a "gaming bible" packed with all kinds of interesting and largely useless information pertaining to the weird and wonderful world of videogames.
The latest Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition covers games ranging from classic arcade stand-ups to the latest console releases, including the best-selling games of 2009. High score information from Twin Galaxies is included, giving gamers the opportunity to see how they stack up against the world's best, as well as information on how readers can submit their own record-setting scores to Guinness World Records.
Other noteworthy records include the World's Largest Collection of Pokemon Memorabilia (held by Lisa Courtney of the U.K.), the Most Popular Puzzle Game of the Century (probably not the one you think), the most recognizable videogame character of all time (here's a hint: Wokka wokka wokka) and the Number One Videogame Series of All Time, As Voted By Guinness Records Readers. (Spoiler: It's Halo.)
"With huge game releases, big announcements and long-standing records broken, this year has been great for gaming," said Guinness World Records Gaming Editor Gaz Deaves. "The Gamer's Edition 2010 is all about what's great in videogames right now, and gamers of all ages and abilities will find something amazing in the new book, from the casual to the ultra-hardcore."
The Guinness World Records 2010 Gamer's Edition is on sale now at most U.S. booksellers for an MSRP of $14.99.
