Watch a guy 'beat' Super Mario World in six minutes

Glitches, man. Glitches be crazy. Take, for example, this one in Super Mario World, as executed by YouTuber SethBling. Thanks to what can only be described as witchcraft, the magician man manages to warp to the game's end cr...

This Kaizo Mario World speedrun stresses me out

"This is what happens when a very sadistic person gets ahold of a level editor." Some of us get a huge kick out of watching strangers overcome the odds in near-impossible games, and as far as those go, Kaizo Mario World (or Asshole Mario) ...

Hey, let's watch someone clear Metroid Prime in 55 minutes

Super Mario World's too good to not watch three people play simultaneously

This video may be just more than 50 minutes long, but I managed to have quite a few nostalgic flashbacks to my youth in that short time. I played the hell out of it as a kid. And that was very correct of me, because after all, Super M...
