For more than a decade, speedrunners has tried to shave of time from the original Super Mario Bros (the one that had it's 35th anniversary last year) to get under 4 minutes and 55 seconds. But so far, none has managed to do that... until today.
The speedrunner Niftski tweets that he has now managed to beat the game in 4:54:97. This really is a remarkable feat, but there is actually still some room for improvement. Using TASbot, the time 4:54:26 has been reached, which shows how incredibly tight you have to play not to lose any time at all, as it only differs 71 hundredths of a second between what a bot can do (with perfect timing in every move) versus flesh and blood for a human.
