Can You Complete Super Mario Bros. In Under Five Minutes?
Posted by James Newton
Over 25 years on from release, people are still playing Super Mario Bros. on NES. Andrew Gardikis has probably played it more than most, as he's just set a new world record for fastest completion of the NES classic.
Clocking in at 4:58.72, the time beats the previous record by ten seconds.
Last year, Gardikis attempted to break the five minute barrier in front of Shigeru Miyamoto, but was unable to finish the game.
You can see Gardikis's record-breaking speed run in the video below. Viewer discretion advised: it'll make you feel really inadequate about your Super Mario Bros. skills.
