You Have To See This Super Mario Bros Speedrun World Record
The world record has been broken on Super Mario Bros. and it’s ridiculous.
If you’ve not heard of speedrunning in games yet, prepare to be blown away. Traditionally it’s when a person plays though a game from start to finish as fast as possible, usually recorded for all to see. Now the world record has been broken on Super Mario Bros. and it’s ridiculous.
Speedrunner Darbian completed the entire game in just four minutes 56 seconds and 878 milliseconds. Yup, milliseconds are important in the competitive world of Mario speedrunning.
The previous record (four minutes 57 seconds and 194 milliseconds) had been set by kosmicd12 only four days ago, but now Darbian has taken the speedrun record by just 316 milliseconds.
A nice touch by Darbian was to setup a heart rate monitor. Check out the data field on the side of the screen showing just how pumped he was, quite literally.
While this was thought impossible a few days ago, Darbian has somehow managed to beat a seemingly perfect run. Could even that be beaten? It’s certainly a cry to gamers who want to prove that impossible means nothing to those dedicated enough to strive for perfection.
Think you’ve got the time to give Darbian a run for his money and get that world record title? Yeah, us neither.
