Man plays Q*bert for more than 80 hours, breaks 30-year-old record
Q*bert is having something of a renaissance these days. After playing a pivotal role in last year’s game-friendly film Wreck-It Ralph, the big nosed video game icon is at the center of a pair of new video game records.
George Leutz has broken the reigning Q*bert high score, a record that stood for 30 years, by playing the classic coin-op for nearly 85 consecutive hours. He pressed play right before noon on February 14 and didn’t finish playing until 12:38am on February 18th.
