Shiny Video: London's Guinness Book of World Records' gaming character costumes attempt

Gaming, Video Reviews

This morning I waved my gamer-geek credentials high in the sky from London’s Millennium Bridge, where the Guinness Book of World Records staged an event, attempting to gather together the most people in one place dressed as game characters.

Take a look at the video above for some choice costumes, including the twenty-odd strong group of school kids dressed as Mario (one of them shouted out to me, as I was also dressed as Mario, “Mario! we’re your sons!”), Crash Bandicoot, Sonic the Hedgehog, a chilly-looking Lara Croft, Final Fantasy’s Rikku plus a whole lot more.

You’ll be pleased to hear we broke the record apparently, so expect to see our photos in the ‘book, plus their new 2009 Guinness World Record Gamers edition book.
