SYDNEY, Nov. 22 (UPI) -- An Australian man broke the world record for longest video game marathon by playing "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2" for more than 122 hours.

Okan Kaya spent days on end playing the popular game at the offices of online retailer 4Cabling near Sydney and achieved a Guinness world record by topping the 120 hours, 7 minutes two Canadians spent playing video games in March, CNET reported Thursday.

"This journey began nearly two years ago when I first heard about the record," Kaya said in an email. "Back then it was 54 hours, and unfortunately earlier this year it skyrocketed to 120 hours."

Kaya said he received regular health checkups during his attempt and was allowed a total 20 hours of break time.
