Day, meanwhile, sees Sanders as an example of everything that used to be good in the world of gaming but no longer is.

"Back then, it was more of a brotherhood," he says. "Today, there's far more tension among those people. Also, bad habits have popped up. People are playing too many games, eating bad foods, not getting out in the sun. People are up till 4 a.m. playing games without their parents knowing and eating genetically modified foods. The lifestyle has degenerated. It's ballooned out of control. It's not just gaming; it's everything."

Sanders says he'll probably try for the singles record again, if he can find the time to make it to Funspot in the next year. But he doesn't worry about it anymore.

"With that whole community of people who follow games, they can think whatever they want. I don't care what any of them think about me."
