On Wednesday, Lev and I had the esteemed privilege of hosting Lil Poison aka Victor De Leon III in the Techland game room aka the empty office we commandeered without telling anyone else. Believe it or not, Lil Poison is the youngest professional gamer and he’s even in the Guinness Book of World Records. Actually, he’s in the Guinness World Records 2010 Gamer’s Edition.
The 11-year-old easily beat the best gamers in the TIME and Techland offices one after another. It was humbling and embarrassing. Lil P was in town to set the record for most points scored in a single 5-minute quarter in Madden 10 on pro-level. Unfortunately, he fell short of setting the record, but he’ll be back to try again soon. To make himself feel better, Lil P beat countless GameStop managers.
Good luck next time, Lil P, we’ll be rooting for you.
