Mad Speedrun

We're certainly fans of speedruns here on Nintendo Life, as few gaming pursuits push the boundaries of games and those playing them as far. Whether world records in classic Zelda games that exploit errors in coding, or flat-out runs that tackle every stage in order, there's plenty to enjoy in seeing the best of the field show off their skills.

This effort from Karl Jobst is particularly special, however. He plays three classic Nintendo 64 games at once, all on their original hardware with no mods, and does so in under an hour. The games in question are GoldenEye 007, Super Mario 64 and The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, with some well-known shortcuts and tricks used to cut down on time; what's particularly impressive is Jobst's time management, using cutscenes and pauses in games as an opportunity to quickly shift controllers and make progress in another title.

It's quite extraordinary to watch, so we think the exclaimed curse at the end is rather justifiable. Check it out and let us know what you think.
