Mike Leyde, a 56-year-old California man has "broken" the game of Bejeweled 2. After playing several hours per day for three years (2200 total hours of game time), he achieved a score that can never be beaten.
"The highest score the game is capable of calculating is 2,147,483,647; that’s 2 to the 31st power minus 1. We had to give the game some sort of maximum displayable score, and figured that was high enough, no one would ever get that many points.
Mr. Leyde reports that he only plays classic games like Tetris, Minesweeper, Spider Solitaire and Video Poker - not the "hardcore" games that his children play. Explaining his feat, he said "“If you’re going to invest time in something, you might as well be as good at it as you possibly can."
