It debuted on the Nintendo Entertainment System on September 13, 1985, over three decades ago, long before livestreaming speedruns was a thing.

Previously, this was only achievable using special programs, but yesterday, a runner did what some people thought impossible, matching those computer-assisted performances with nothing but grit and skill. In fact, by engaging in the classic art of "speedrunning" - employed by gamers who want to beat records by running through levels at top speeds and being extremely coordinated - he managed to tie the previous speed record down the millisecond, which record was 4:56.245. Once sufficiently practiced for around an hour and a half, Kosmic would go on to drop eight short runs trying to pull it off and on the ninth run would go on to carry through the entire run to achieve the new record.

An expert video game speed-runner shared video of his record-breaking Super Mario Bros. session, which he completed in 4 minutes, 55 seconds. The record will stand as the first time a human, unassisted by a computer completed the game in less than 4:56. However, there comes the point where a game just can not be completed any faster.

Unassisted he set a time of 4:55:913.

Trump performs his best material, but fails on Kavanaugh
According to Ford, she was friends with one of Kavanaugh's classmates, which resulted in them being at numerous parties together. The Senate Judiciary Committee is questioning Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh after an anonymous letter was sent to Sen.

"This isn't real life, dude", he said after the run ended. Frame-rules are a odd quirk of how Super Mario Bros. handles how long it waits before loading the next level.

The gamer goes by "Kosmicd12", and he's no stranger to Super Mario Bros.

He was able to accomplish the feat by executing a highly precise trick that let him clip through an end-of-level pipe and get to the warp quicker saving one frame rule. "One and done. I don't know what what to say".
