Via: slashdot.org: Man Spends 2,200 Hours Defeating Bejeweled 2

Mike Leyde wants to be the best at everything he does, even if one of the things he does is play Bejeweled 2. PopCap Games recently profiled this 52-year-old steel contractor, revealing him to be the very first man to ever “beat” the puzzle sequel. It took him three years to do it, too!

Leyde earned a score of 2,147,483,647, which just so happens to be the highest score Bejeweled 2 is capable of processing. It took a total time of 2,205 hours and 51 minutes to collect the 4,872, 229 gems necessary and ostensibly “complete” a game that nobody else has managed to best, despite its immense popularity.

    Warcraft Exec #1: Fellow board members, we have a problem. Somebody in the World of Warcraft is ignoring the world’s rules and is going around killing innocent players.
    Warcraft President: Why kill innocent players? The game is about finishing quests.
    Warcraft Exec #2: We got to delete him from the server!
    Warcraft Exec #1: We can’t. Whoever this player is has played Warcraft so much, that he has reached a level we thought unreachable. He’s actually able to kill our admins! And he grows stronger every day!
    Warcraft Exec #3: Jesus!
    Jim: I’ve got to get home; my kids are playing World of Warcraft right now!
    Warcraft Exec #1: Jim, Your kid’s characters are already dead.
    Jim: No, no. They just started playing!
    (Jim starts crying)
    Warcraft Exec #2: What kind of person would do this?
    Warcraft Exec #1: Only one kind, whoever this person is, he has played World of Warcraft nearly every hour of every day for the past year and a half! Gentlemen, we are dealing with someone here who has absolutely no life.
    Warcraft Exec #3: How can you kill that which has no life? [edit]
