This is how I would describe the Guinness World Records 2009 Gamer's Edition.

It is a collection of record-breaking achievements in video games.

The book covers everything from banned and controversial games and fanatical gaming collectors, to individual performance records and thousands of facts and figures from the gaming world across all platforms.

The book is a globally recognised authority on record-breaking achievements. It reveals the latest and greatest in video gaming.

The book is a comprehensive guide to record-breaking games on all consoles and it also offers a broad range of features ranging from the history of gaming to interviews with key gaming figures.

The video games in the book have a long history of causing and sometimes courting controversy. For law-makers as well as the media, it is often not just fun with games.
