Seventeen-year-old Alexander Skudlarek broke the record in October after playing "Dance Dance Revolution" for over 16 hours, but now it's official. Video game blog Kotaku says the Rochester teen just received the official letter from the Guinness Book of World Records.

Kotaku says Skudlarek isn't especially crazy about the game, he just wanted to beat a world record for video games and, after flipping through the book, figured this was one he could beat.

Skudlarek did this for 16 hours, 18 minutes and 9 seconds (with a 10-minute break every hour):
