Description of this Book

The Guinness World Records Gamer's Edition 2019 is the global authority on all things videogames. The 12th edition of the world's best-selling videogames annual is bursting with amazing records, remarkable feats and marvellous achievements by gamers just like you, who have been inspired by the games they love to play. Inside you'll be able to delve into your favourite games like never before - from returning favourites such as FIFA, Overwatch, Call of Duty, Minecraft, Super Mario and The Legend of Zelda, to all-new instant classics such as Monster Hunter: World, Dragon Ball FighterZ, NieR: Automata and Cuphead. You'll be able to discover who the best FIFA 18 player in the world is, the size of the biggest monster in Monster Hunter: World (clue: it's really, really big), which Overwatch player has healed more players than any other and find out which eSports pro won more than $2.4 million in 2017 alone! We'll also introduce you to some of the most amazing gamers on the planet. From Nathaniel Nathie de Jong, the world's most popular VR-dedicated YouTuber, to Ray Stallion83 Cox who has the world's highest Xbox Gamerscore. And that's not forgetting Joseph Garrett, Stampy Cat himself, who holds one of Minecraft's strangest records ever - let's just say cake is involved... Stampy Cat has also provided a special guest intro that you'll only find in Gamer's Edition 2019. Talk of Stampy Cat brings us speedily to our World Builders special chapter - a well-constructed celebration of the games that let us build, including Minecraft, LEGO (R) Worlds, Roblox, Terraria and more. You'll have the chance to don your hard hat, too, by taking part in our Reader Challenges that could put your name in lights in next year's Gamer's Edition.

Author's Bio

In 1951, Sir Hugh Beaver, the then managing director of the Guinness Brewery, went on a shooting party and became involved in an argument. Which was the fastest game bird in Europe - the golden plover or the grouse? He realized then that a book supplying the answers to this sort of question might prove popular. He was right! Sir Hugh's idea became reality when Norris and Ross McWhirter, who had been running a fact-finding agency in London, were commissioned to compile what became The Guinness Book of Records. The first edition was bound on August 27, 1955, and went to the top of the British bestseller lists by Christmas that year. Since then, Guinness World RecordsT has become a household name and the global leader in world records. No other enterprise collects, confirms, accredits and presents world record data with the same investment in comprehensiveness and authenticity.
