Fan sets Guinness World Record at Halo 5 launch event

While many Halo fans were standing in line to pick up their copy of Halo 5: Guardians, Paavo Niskala in Helsinki, Finland, set a Guinness World Record for longest video game marathon in a Halo game — over 50 hours!

Thanks to info from Twitter user @tontsa, Niskala played Halo 1–3 on Heroic, Halo 4 and 5 on Legendary, then continued onto Halo 5 multiplayer. Total time came to a whopping 50 hours and 4 minutes!
