Smile for the camera Chris … you are about to make GH history!
If you are looking for the video game equivalent to Hendrix, you may have found your man. Sixteen-year-old Chris Chike fingers plastic like nobody’s business, and in a world seemingly being taken over by video game guitarists, he is the man to beat.
Chris recently demolished the GH3 track “Through the Fire and the Flames” on expert mode en route to a perfect score. Some GH enthusiasts apparently argue that “The Devil Went Down To Georgia” is more difficult than the aforementioned GH3 track. As far as I am concerned, the thought of either on expert mode make my hands cramp up.
I will happily die never knowing what it feels like to score as high as Chris on any of the more difficult songs GH has to offer, because frankly, my fingers will never move that fast unless they have a female attached to them.
In honor of Chris’s amazing achievement allow me to quote his reaction upon completion word for word below…
“holy shit holy shit holy shit holy shit no way no way no way no fucking way oh my god oh my god oh my god holy shit 100 fucking % my hands holy shit holy shit holy shit holy shit that just fucking happened.”
Of course success in any walk of life breeds doubters, haters, and my personal favorite — jealous haters full of doubt. As I went to clip the video from Youtube, my eyes stumbled upon one comical response to his video that I just couldn’t pass up sharing.
“r u fucking retarded, u really think he got a 100 percent on it. he’d be in the world record book.” – GearsPlayer999
To answer your question, no we are not, yes we do, and he most certainly is in the Guinness World Record Book. Chris held the previous high score of 880,920 before being dethroned in May of this year by Danny Johnson’s 890,971 score. The Guinness World Record Book is aware of Chris’s latest video (below) and is in the process of trying to confirm his 987,786 score. You lose. Thanks for playing.
