Man ‘beats’ Bejeweled 2 after playing for 3 years

We admire all forms of dedication — even the absolutely insane forms. A California steel contractor named Mike Leyde recently displayed one such type of persistence by playing a single round of his casual game of choice, Bejeweled 2, for 2,205 hours and 51 minutes over the course of three years. In that time, he collected 4,872,229 gems, earning the game’s highest calculable score, 2,147,483,647, at which point the score display got really perplexed and went blank. (Check out a video of Mike’s achievement after the jump.)

According to PopCap, Leyde is the first person to ever “beat” Bejeweled 2. That’s one way of looking at it, we suppose. Another way of looking at it is to say that everyone else who’s ever played Bejeweled 2 is a quitter. Yeah, that’s right. Why don’t you follow through with something for once in your life? Sheesh.
