Longest gaming marathon was 120 hours, other gaming records chronicled in Guinness World Records

The longest gaming marathon clocked in at 120 hours and 7 minutes of the Resistance series at an EB Games store in Toronto, Canada, according to the latest edition of the Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition.

The record was set by Chris Gloyd and Timothy Bell, who played from March 12 to March 17 in 2012. USA Today selected 10 random records from the book, including the largest collection of video game memorabilia (more than 8,000 Super Mario-related items), the most prolific video game music composer (Tommy Tallarico) and the first country to ban in-game sales (South Korea).

The Guinness World Records 2013 Gamer's Edition is the sixth published volume to focus on gaming records. It is currently available for $14.99.
