Super Mario Bros speedrun record broken

posted by Jason Kottke   Apr 18, 2016

NES player darbian just broke his own record for the fastest time through Super Mario Bros. He completed the entire game in just 4 minutes 57.260 seconds. But the most entertaining part of the video is watching his heart rate slowly creep up from 80 bpm at the beginning to ~140 bpm in World 8-2 and spiking to 171 bpm when he beats the record.

Update: Compare that with this insane level from Mario Maker:
