Some chose to juggle their way in while others visited skate parks or freestyle rapped. A select few others chose to play video games.

On Tuesday, Dec.11, world record keeping organization RecordSetter released their annual list of the top records of the year. Two of the records ranked in the Top 15 RecordSetter World Records of 2012 took place on two of the most popular video games in the world.

Rankings were decided by a combination of input from RecordSetter officials and voting from the public via a recent Facebook poll.

Coming in ninth place was the "Longest Angry Birds Marathon" done by Ward Varsonnen and Sirdan Dalle of Belgium. Their mark of 48 hours straight on a pair of iPad tablets survived 2012 in tact to become one of two gaming records within the top ten.

The other gaming record, coming in at forth place, was "The Fastest Time to Reach Level 50 in Borderlands 2" done by United States gamer Matt Siegfried. Determined to be the first in the world to climb to the highest level in the game, Siegfried reached the mark just 43 hours after the midnight launch of the game, doing so on a live internet broadcast.

The full list of the Top 15 RecordSetter World Records of 2012, including video of both record breaking video game runs, can be found by clicking here.

Officials from RecordSetter will also be NBC's Late Night With Jimmy Fallon this Friday night, Dec. 14.
