While impressive, isn't this just streaming image data? A bit hollow IMHO...

Which game would it be? If it's Skyrim, I'd love to playtest it. :D

There are so many scene records who could in some sense make it into guiness record (or maybe not, too specific), surprised to see a scene thing in the book.
Who has the most sprites, most raster splits, fastest rotozoomer and all that?
Nah..

Indeed, that'd have made so much more sense.


I think part of the Guiness records process is that you must send out for the record to be awarded and then they look at it, so it'd figure - nobody else bothered submitting something.
