Gamer Sets New Speed Record for Super Mario 64

Saturday May 24th, 2014

If, like me, you spent countless hours of your childhood trying to conquer the expansive world of Super Mario 64, then the following video should spark both awe and jealousy. It features Twitch user Puncayshun speeding through the game in a ridiculous, record-breaking 1:43:42, collecting all 120 stars in the process.

(The record run begins about 23 minutes into the video)

Puncayshun beat the precious world record by 11 seconds, but his run isn't perfect, meaning there's room for the record to be lowered even further.

Now if you'll excuse me, I'm going to call in sick today and work on Mario 64 skills. I want to accomplish something with my life, dammit!
