    Most amazing video ever...I forgot it hadn't been posted here.

    Wow. Sorry to subject you guys to WMV.
    The video is twenty minutes long. It starts right as he begins a new game in Mario 64. It ends right as he beats the game.
    Anyone who has ever played Mario 64 has to watch this.

    I don't know if that's impressive or really sad.

    There was a Mario 3 game like this when someone beat it in 16 minutes. A few people broke down the clip frame-by-frame and found parts where the video wasn't seamless. It was really 9 clips or so that were pasted together. Plus there were times when the game moved faster than the NES allowed it to. Still impressive, but not as impressive as first though. I'd bet this is the same thing.

    I've seen that video before. It's pretty incredible just how awesome that guy is at SM64. I especially like the part where he goes up the starcase backwards! Insane.

    this guys is a machine.

    Not a single wasted move (almost). Most direct route. Everything looks calculated. So efficient. Very creative and unconventional use of lava as shortcuts. All the damage is took was intended. What did he do with that rabbit? Was that a glitch he took advantage of? He even passed through some walls. I'm impressed but a little scared at the same time.

    Everyone knows it's only impressive if you get all 120 stars :)

    These videos are made with emulators, that can record the actions in the game. Players re-record certain parts of a game 1000's of times until they get a perfect game. This site has many different videos from different games and consoles.

    Edit: I just watched some of that one and it is actually not that fast or nearly as impressive as the one on bisquits site:

    16 min Mario 64

    God, watching the video the OP posted is soo painful, it's not that good at all. If you liked the video at all, do yourself a favor and download the one I posted. The guy makes NO mistakes and NEVER stops moving at the fastest speed possible. Plus, the stars that he gets, and how he gets them are far more entertaining.

    That video is insane, I've seen it before. Some of the glitches he takes advantage of are incredible. I tried doing some of them on the DS version, either they've been fixed or he's "ub3r" awesome at doing them.

    Most of them have been fixed, me and a friend checked. A lot of them work in 64 but not DS.

    I unfortunately missed out on SM64 ; I had no idea it was already out looking at that link and funny thing it was truely 3Dimensional impressive.

    I'm not gonna miss out on Mario Soccer for GCN or even Mario Bros Double Trouble for my BlueDS
