betamaxed 420_blaze_it proves that winners do in fact do drugs. Suck it, D.A.R.E.!
badideasinaction I would pay good money for a Morgan Freeman narration of this doc.
poorwill Why did I watch this? Why did I enjoy it?
betamaxed I enjoy how deep into the programming that speedrunners are able to comprehend and exploit. For example, the infinite universe Mario 64 teleport stuff is nuts.
Herr Matthias Speedrunning can be fascinating, and this is probably this guy's best video. All the others fall in the rut of "There's this game, and this guy set the record, and then some other guy set another record, and nobody thought it could be beaten, and that was proven wrong when these other people went back and forth breaking each others records..." If he focused on the technical details they'd be golden.
Raggamuffin Yup. I love hearing about the way these guys push the boundaries of what's possible inside these games.
Just watching people play games fast has limited appeal to me.
