Forget Wii Fit — a new bar has been set for physical exertion through video games. 17-year-old Alexander Skudlarek of Rochester, Minnesota is now the holder of the Guinness World Record for "Longest video games marathon playing Dance Dance Revolution" after an epic performance of 16 hours, 18 minutes and 9 seconds. Granted, he took a ten minute break every hour, but we're still impressed — we tend to get tired after ten minutes of Konami's rhythmic arcade hit. This smashes Carrie Swidecki's previous record of 15 hours, 17 minutes and 44 seconds, though it's currently unknown who hit the most Marvelous arrows.
