Gamers lined up outside of the Best Buy off of Richmond for "Call of Duty: Black Ops 2".
Though the electronic store closed its doors at 9 p.m., a select few were allowed inside for a hands-on sneak peek of the game.
"If you're like a gamer like I am, play nonstop like into the game, you understand you're into the whole story," Kelly Cevallos said.
Kelly was second in line, all bundled up and in good company next to Eric Cevallos.
"I don't know what time we're gonna go home and I don't know how it's gonna work out for me," Eric said. "I'm gonna play all night and try to go to work the next day.
Apparently the game is totally worth a sick day. Die-hard gamers were also given the opportunity to play in the Magnolia Design Center, fully equipped with surround sound and several controllers.
"It is first-person shooter so you when you're in the game, you actually see what it is your looking at, your rifles or whatever weapon you have," Best Buy supervisor David Hill said.
The CEO of Gamestop said they have seen the highest preorders in history and the game is already on track to break records and rake in millions.
That includes the $60+ each person outside will spend, even though some said they were only out there for support.
"I'm more like a supportive wife to my die-hard husband. I'm staying in the cold and waiting for him while he gets his game," Andressa DeLeon said. "I'll play a little, but I'm not a die-hard gamer."
