31-year-old American Brett Martin has the world's Largest Collection of Videogame Memorabilia in the world. It's been officially verified as among his 8,030 items sits the official certificate from the Guinness World Records. His and other gaming achievements are now featured in the new Guinness World Records 2013 Gamer's Edition book. On the other end of the scale is the world's Smallest Arcade Machine. Dubbed the ultimate geek toy by its Canadian creator Mark Slevinsky the tiny computer took six months to build. SOUNDBITE: Mark Slevinsky, saying (English) "It has all the same parts as a real full size arcade machine it's got a joystick, a display, a mother board, a power supply but a much smaller form factor there is no coin slot though." Meanwhile 19-year-old Welshman Jann Mardenborough is the youngest Gran Turismo Academy winner - and an up-and coming menace on the real racing circuit. And 15-year-old Briton Jacob Gaby isFIFA's top scorer with the help of Lionel Messi. The Joker made the list of the Top 50 Videogame Villains Of All Time. But, perhaps it's Bowser who packs the meanest punch.
