      You're probably the first person to make a 30 min video that I watched fully through and never got bored. I subscribed, you deserve it.

    You know you’ve got a talent for documentaries when you can talk about one track in one MarioKart for 30 minutes and get 46k likes, well done!

    This is great! No sweeping aerial shots, no expensive elaborate setups. Just a simple story about a game, well told, well paced and well edited. This IS how you tell a compelling story with a limited budget and minimal visuals. I'll bet this held more people's attention more than most multi-million dollar sitcoms or reality shows. Passion and good storytelling go a long way. Nice work!

    Take as long on these videos as you need. I rather wait longer for an as accurate as possible video that’s well edited than one rushed out to meet demands, heck even if you came back with a part two or revised version I would not complain. Have fun and remember to enjoy what you’re doing; it’s what matters most when looking back.

    You took something I had never even heard of before and made me care about so much to the point where I cheered at the pinnacle moment. This is good storytelling. Being able to take something I had no interest and keep me enraptured for 30 minutes is the testament of a good video. I never sub after just one video, but this earned it.

    Ok TheXvid, I turned on the notification bell, I subscribed, I've done everything. Thought it was a glitch, so I just turned notifications on and off. But wow, I just now get the notification of this video, thanks.

    I just watched a 30-minute video about a guy ramming into a brown mountain wall in an old N64 game. I've already seen your Super Mario Bro 4-2 video in full and once again, you've managed to make such an interesting and engaging video that is accessible to people who have no interest at all in speedrunning. I really look forward to spending more half-hours watching videos of yours that mean nothing to me but still are so interesting. It's insane how well made these videos are!

    I'm sure suggestions are dime a dozen, but have you considered doing TAS progression videos? There are a lot of TASes with really interesting histories, and TASVideos keeps really good records of old runs. I'd love to watch a video on years-long frame wars.

    This was a spectacular video. I have never played Mario Kart 64, just the original on the SNES. However, this was well narrated and well edited. It kept my interest throughout. Thank you for your time researching and compiling all of this information. I only have one thumbs up to give, but you have it!

    i know i could never really hold a speed run mainly as i love to play and mess around with the game itself waaay to much to really do much competitively but still very cool to see when people do feets like this from time to time, with that said i still love to get all the old (nintendo preferred) games and systems i can
