Hello readers, Shosh Games here!
As the people behind one of the biggest YouTube gaming channels and now a games designer in our own right (see p. 12)-it’s a real privilege to contribute the first guest forward to Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition and to talk about the one thing that everyone loves-games!
We believe that gaming is the most exciting industry in the world. It has the most passionate fans and the most creative and imaginative people behind it. It’s also the most rapidly evolving industry, too, with gaming channels attracting millions of viewers on YouTube and twitch, esports growing into a huge, global spectator sport, and the constant creation of new technology that changes the way we make and play games.
This is why the Guinness World Records Gamer’s Edition is such an essential book. It not only brings recognition to the record holders, the fams, and the developers and professionals who drive the industry, but it’s just so much fun to read, real-life game of Pac0Man, a 45-hr turn of Hearthstone, and even men jumping out of a plane playing Skylanders. But our favourite record is on the Assassin’s Creed pages, where you’ll discover that the most-viewed fan film based on an action-adventure game is “ULTIMATE ASSASSIN’S CREED 3 SONG [Music video]” by...oyh year, SMOSH!
This year we’re hoping that Smosh Games Videos will get more records so that we can come back and be in this book again next year. Being in this book feels great!
So without further ado, it is with massive pleasure that we welcome you to the Guinness Wold Gamer’s Edition 2016. Whether your thing is for moustachioed plumbers, League of Legends champions or giant Minecraft cities, there’s plenty to sink your teeth into here.
See you all next year. We’re all off to play some games!
