Quebecer Bobby Gamache has broken the Guinness World Record for longest videogame session in a marathon that lasted 44 hours, with some last-minute competition pushing him further than he expected.

Gamache had broken the record 34 hours into a session of World of Warcraft, but there was someone else logged on, also going for the record, iheartradio.ca reported.

"We learned at that time that someone else was actually trying to break the same Guinness World Record and they were almost close to the 40-hour mark at that time," said his brother Mathieu Gamache, who was live on streaming platform Twitch alongside his brother for the marathon. "Bobby actually took it upon himself to actually say, 'Look, you know what, we are already 34 hours into this thing. I can't lose. So let's go for another 12 hours and he did."

Bobby shattered the previous world record of 32 hours, 26 minutes and played the game for 44 hours, 44 minutes and 44 seconds.
