Guinness World Record Award Given To God Of War Superfan

A God of War superfan has been awarded a Guinness World Record award thanks to his incredibly impressive collection of memorabilia.

Emanuel Mojica Rosas, from Jalisco, Nayarit in Mexico, has a grand total of 583 God of War items, which he’s accumulated over the last eight years.

He explained [via TheGamer] that his collection stemmed from the passing of his grandmother back in 2011, spurring him into a life-long love of the game series.

“My only escape was to pick up my PlayStation 2 and start to play God of War,” he said. “If Kratos can change his own destiny, I can do it.”

Mojica Rosas crowned a Guinness World Record holder, but what’s even more impressive is the gift he was given from GoW director, Cory Barlog.

Barlog presented Mojica Rosas with the original burned disc for the very first God of War game, which released on the PlayStation 2.

The wonderful occasion was all captured on video, which you can see below from the official PlayStation YouTube channel.
