    I didn't even see LPB2 mentioned once. Maybe I wasn't looking or something.

    That is not official, it is Kotaku's own thing; like publishers reviews on other video games.

    Um... not you didn't see the proper article. They where two of them one with LBP2 and then the other with Mario Galaxy. I'm saying how Guiness is handing them records out like theres no tomorrow.

    LOL @ thinking that Guinness has ever actually mattered. Sure, it's fun to flip through when a new addition comes out, but it's not as if it has ever been some serious scholarly journal or anything.

    Yeah you are absolutely right. The Guinness brewery originally created the book to stop bar fights.

    Because after you've had twelve beers, the debate on who grew the worlds largest potato becomes a very important topic.
    In fact, important enough that you are willing to break the other guy's nose just to prove your point.

    I agree that the Guinness book has never been serious, all one needs to do is read the entries inorder to confirm this, lol. Like for instance, I just went to my bookshelf, and am looking at the 2000 edition. For instance there is a entry for "most piercings" (137), "thickest mackup" (6 inches), "heaviest model" (719 pounds) (that includes a photo).... Its all good for a laugh, fun or whatever, but really shouldnt be taken seriously!
    All one needs to do to attempt a record is follow a few simple rules of documenting it, then send it to Guinness for consideration in there book, nothing really official about it , the book is still tons of fun to read though

    Guinness world records started out from a company that makes stout beer.


    So, when wasn't it a joke?


    Also the gamer's edition is wrong. Just cause 2 isn't the biggest open world map in a video game. Fuel has that claim with a landscape bigger then Maine and Rode Island combined.
