Guinness World Records
Gamers, meet your dream woman. The fast-fingered Annie Leung of Irvine set the female world record for a single track on Guitar Hero III, racking up 789,349 points on the expert level of "Through the Fire and Flames" by the band DragonForce. The September 2010 achievement is documented in the Guinness World Records 2011 Gamer's Edition, which hit store shelves this month.

Video after the jump.

Leung, whose nickname is Ecstacy, grew up in the Bay Area and graduated from UC Berkeley with a degree in environmental economics and policy. She began playing video games as a kid but didn't take the hobby seriously until 2004, when she got hooked on Unreal Tournament.

For the unfamiliar, Guitar Hero has players "strum" and hit chords on a toy guitar, letting them feel like rock stars without having to quit their day jobs and end up in rehab.

Here's a video of Leung produced by Guinness World Records. Apparently, she wears a minidress and over-the-knee boots when she plays.

Guinness is one. If you do not have a win before, has just set a record. And 'the female record, and all these guys are pissed now? You have to look at things the wrong way mate.erotic game

This was a world record in a womens category. The real world record is still owned by a man at something like 900k. The fact there is a female category for something that isn't gender specific is just plain sexist. If women want equality why do they let this kind of crap happen? Everyone's just getting excited because she's a hottie. It's all a bit sad really.

This is the highest score for females, not the highest score generally. I don't see why this is newsworthy material, other than for ''she's hot and plays'', which is neglible nowadays.

It's already been said but I'll say it again as well, it's pathetic that this girl is getting any credit at all. So she "broke" the previously non-existent high score by a female for a song on guitar hero 3. As it was said, she was NOWHERE near the real high scores of over 900k and the REAL guinness world record holder. The fact that they even allowed there to be a female division of this is just pathetic and goes to show that the girl gamers just can't keep up with the guys. If you can't beat them, create your own division, seems to be the trend I'm seeing with her specifically. She can't beat any guys in any tournaments, she's never won anything as an unreal player OR a gh player, and now she's having to dress up all ridiculously and have #1 female to give her some sort of justification for not quitting gaming. She really needs to win something relevant or gtfo of the industry.

I agree.. in fact this Guinness World Record must have been the easiest record to set lol. She basically just had to submit her best score on GH3, whatever it was, 'cause NO OTHER female even thought about trying out for a GWR "female" record like 200k below the real one. Can't believe either that they actually created a category just for her, when there are like 3 female GH players competing in the whole world. Wonder how far they'll go with that "female" category hmmm. I really hope some of the girls that are way better than her (and not competing/known) go break it anyway hahaha!

Dude your completely sexist man. She just wants to inspire girls to be just like her and i would love to see more girls in the gaming industry.

It's sexist to have ANY DIVISION between male and female gamer.

A GH record should be for any person no matter the race or gender.

Should we have a GH record for transgendered people as well? What about those whom identify with no genders at all?

Guinness is like that. If there was no prior record to beat, you just established yourself a record holder. It's a female record, and all these guys are pissed now? You're looking at things the wrong way mate.

K, Guitar Hero doesn't earn you the title of gaming goddess. Becoming that good at it is something, but she's not the paragon of gaming geeks dreams, seeing as my borderline autistic in-laws can pick up the game and do something with it. Now if she cleaned out the leaderboards on Demon's Souls, or could regale someone with how she beat IWTBTG, got Biggoron's sword, demolished the bandits in STALKER, beat the piss out of Diablo, and found all the flags in Assassin's Creed.. then yeah, be someone I'd actually take with more than a grain of salt if they wanted to get into/play some video games.

Not really arguing her validity at being good at GH, just as the whole concept of "She's gamers' dreaaaam!"

So she holds the female record. Hmm. I wonder how far away that is from the real record. Really though, I dont' care. Its like the female record for anything else. Doesn't really count unless its better than the male record as well. Wonder how fast she can make me a sandwich.

While I'm not saying she isn't good, this score is nowhere close to the *REAL* world record, as per Scorehero. The Guinness people won't count scorehero scores b/c of their unreasonable proof requirements, but there are 100's of people on Scorehero who could dominate that score.

Good? Definitely.

The Best? Hardly.

What is unreasonable about being able to prove your score? It's way too easy to rid up a computer to the buttons to get a perfect game, such that I wonder how many of the Scorehero scores are real... I'm sure there are better players, I'm not saying she's really the best - just that it's not unreasonable to require proof.

The point still stands. This is not 'the best' of anything, yet it's Guinness record worthy, and apparently newsworthy. The hell?
