The year selfies went extreme

If 2013 was the year of the selfie - welcome to the year of the extreme selfie.

Following in the steps of past photo crazes like planking, cat breading and vadering, comes the Selfie Games.

Users of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter are being encouraged to take the outlandish selfie ever and to then post it on social media.

A twitter account has been created retweeting some of the contenders with the challenge: "How strong is your selfie game?"

And it gets crazy - check it out for yourself.
