Target: Will Johnson, 21, of Arkansas, became the Highest Earning Call of Duty Player after making 83,000 from winning four titles on the Major League Gaming Pro Circuit between 2009 and 2012

Jacob, who broke the record for the Highest Margin of Victory against the Computer on FIFA, came up with the idea while playing with his brother – and is on the game for around seven hours per week.

‘I never went out to achieve a record,’ he said. ‘I was just sat playing the game with my brother. We were bored, so he challenged me to see how many goals I could score against the computer.’

He said ‘it’s perfect to have solid proof that I am the best in the world at a craft I’ve spent years working on’, but added that he may have to cut down his game time ‘or I risk losing my girlfriend’.

Another record-breaker is web designer Mr Martin, who has the Largest Collection of Videogame Memorabilia. He got his first item – a Super Mario figure – from his parents aged eight.

He only started collecting 12 years ago when he began using eBay, but has since amassed a collection worth more than 62,000. ‘My kids love the collection,’ Mr Martin said. ‘My wife is tolerant.’

He added: ‘Many of my friends know I’m a gamer, but I guess after this they’ll realise just how passionate and obsessed I am.’

At the other end of the scale, the Smallest Arcade Machine – created by computer engineer Mr Slevinsky – took six months to design and build, and stands at a tiny 4.88 by 2.05 by 2.36 inches.

‘My wife and I are expecting our first child (a son) any day now,’ the designer said. ‘He’ll be the right size to play the arcade machine.’

Mr Slevinsky added: ‘There are all the same parts as a real, full-size arcade machine. It's got a joystick, a display, a motherboard, a power supply… there is no coin slot though.’

FIVE OTHER WACKY RECORDS… FOR THOSE WHO DISLIKE VIDEO GAMES
Fastest time to enter zipped suitcase: 5.43s by Leslie Tipton in New York, 2009Longest living with scorpions: 33 days by Kanchana Ketkaew in Thailand, 2009Largest bubblegum bubble: 20in blown diameter by Chad Fell in Alabama, 2004Largest collection of sick bags: 6,016 by Niek Vermeulen in Netherlands, 2010Fastest mile on a pogo stick whilst juggling three balls: 23m 28s by Ashrita Furman in New York, 2007

He wanted to be a racing
car driver when he was younger, and was called a 'natural' by the owner
of a kart circuit aged eight – but the costs were too high, so he turned to video games instead.

Other impressive feats, which are being recognised in the Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition 2013, include Canada’s Chris Gloyd and Timothy Bell – who achieved the Longest Gaming Marathon.

The pair lasted an astonishing 120 hours and 7 minutes on the Resistance first-person shooter series.

John Bates, 85, of Wisconsin, proved that age is no factor as he was recorded as having achieved over 14,000 perfect games on Wii Sports Bowling, making him the Oldest Gaming Record Holder.

Kevin Lynch – who worked on the book, which is out today – said: ‘It’s been a fantastic year for gaming, with incredible records broken by players from all walks of life.’
