Chris Chike is the best Guitar Hero player in the world, according to his prestigious Guinness Book of World Records endorsement.
The New York Times has just profiled the 17-year-old Guitar Hero master. After scoring a perfect 100% on Guitar Hero III's infamously impossible Through the Fire and Flames, Chris Chike was approached by video game peripheral maker Ant Commandos to create his own personalized line of Guitar Hero controllers.
“Internally we call him our Tiger Woods,” said Raymond Yow, the company’s chief operating officer.
Chris Chike, also known as his online pseudonym iamchris4life, may very well become the first true gaming celebrity in the U.S., and is bringing more legitimacy to gaming in general. Be sure to check out the full New York Times article for more insight on Chris Chike, Guitar Hero, and the video game industry's position in mainstream culture.

to all those people dissing this guy at least read the godamm article in the times and watch his vid on youtube 1st, the article shows that he isnt some sad loser with no life and the vid shows he has some serious skills and deserves the credit hes got for this. I cant stand people that slag off others just because they cant do what they can or they think what they have done is sad, stop being so imature ffs
