Mafia 2's rap sheet now includes a Guinness World Record for "most swearing in a video game." The mob saga surpassed House of the Dead: Overkill's 189 permutations on the word "f*ck" by ... well, they're still counting. Seriously.

A representative for Guinness World Records tells Joystiq that at the moment the company has accepted that there are over 200 f-bombs in the game. He elaborated, "The number associated with the record is liable to change in the next few weeks, as 2K have promised to supply us with a copy of the game's full script under NDA so we can count the number of f-bombs ourselves and update the record with a complete figure." The company hopes to get the record into the 2011 Gamer's Edition that will be available in January.

The prolific profanities were first noticed by Achievement Hunter and compiled into a video. Take a listen to the NSFW montage after the break.

It didn't occur to me until almost the very end of the game. Then it just hit me how many times I had heard that word so far. Guess they lack a more varied vocabulary. ;)

They weren't first noticed by Achievement Hunters, tons of people had already been talking about the excessive use of the f word. Plus, every time I play GTA IV Niko says fuck at least 15 times in 20 minutes.

Yeah, but when Niko says it, you really feel it. I loved that mission where he rescues Roman shouting "No one FUCKS with my family!",...epic stuff, and so well voiced.
