Jesus! I couldn't help but laugh, parts have the music overshadowed by CONSTANT clicking of the buttons. He says that it's only their third run-through. That's really hard to believe, but possible, I guess.

This was a pretty entertaining run through of the original Mega Man.

Regarding the astonishing Tetris guy...

There is a neurological condition where your brain perceives time too quickly. (It's the exact opposite of the condition the people in 'Awakenings' have.)

People with this condition talk hyperfast and have insane reflexes. They truly perceive reality as if it were slowed down by say a factor of 3 or something. (Including for example how they hear voices.)

This is obv a longshot but it would not surprise me if the Tetris guy has that condition. It seems like it's neurologically impossible for a normal person to play that fast.

A completely different theory is that maybe Tetris blocks are non-random and he has memorized the sequence they come in and in addition played a ton of tetris, so he is essentially on autopilot.

The SF3 one was supercool too... more as a rockstar kind of moment than being superhumanly tough.




It didn't seem THAT unreal to me. He has to be able to picture where all the pieces are at the bottom of the screen, which seems like something that someone who is very good at visualization would be able to do. He's given the next 3 pieces (color-coded) and a replacement. The color coding makes it easier to recognize what's coming next with peripheral vision rather than actually having to glance at it and lose concentration on the stack.

It's an amazing video. I do think that a dedicated person could get that good by practicing.

The SF3 one was my favorite, I was half-expecting the crowd to start chanting "Holy [censored]", that's how awesome that was.

Mega Man's my hero and all, but 24 minutes?




I remember the first couple of Mega Man's being insanely hard...this video is really freaking impressive. I never even beat MM all the way through I don't believe (think I got to second to last boss or so).

Pretty much all these vids are ridiculous. I think the SF3 vid is probably a little overrated compared to the others though, it's just the crowd going nuts like that makes the hair on the back of your neck stand up. Don't get me wrong, it's sick what he did and everything, but I don't think it's quite as impressive as the Tetris or 5 minute Mario video.
