As a kid, I spent hours and hours playing Super Mario World on Super Nintendo with my dad and my sister. It holds a very special place in my heart. Thought we probably beat it at least 10 times, it would always be an undertaking that would take hours and hours, sometimes even an entire weekend. This guy, however, figured out a glitch in the game that allows him to do what is called a “credits warp” on a SNES console. Or, in non-nerd terms, “a glitch which plays the end credits without actually defeating Bowser.”

This means that he can beat Super Mario World in six minutes flat, which is a new world record. Now I want to see him beat Goldeneye 007, Super Mario 64, and Zelda: Ocarina of Time in a half-hour, besting this gamer’s record for a speed run.
