    I really wish there was a speed run record for TAS... This video should show that is a competition on its own! 6 seconds for a lap on TAS? Slow! It's impressively difficult and managing the best before anyone else should really deserve recognition!

    VAJ is a fucking asshole and it's odd he never shows it. If you don't see it, it could be a hack.

    just watched this - absolutely fantastic. really fascinating. honestly, there needs to be a proper documentary series made about this world. it’s about ‘gaming’ ofc but actually (and i know this is corny) it’s more about human endeavour, trial v tribulation, glory, ignominy when caught cheating, community ... and weirdos and obsessives: ie just like ever innovator there’s ever been. Great stuff !!

    At 6:39, you show the transcript of the email and it begins with “>2.” and proceeds with the instructions for the wall jumping shortcut. Then at 6:46 you display the same passage except you introduce it as “shortcut number one” and the text has been revised to read as “>1.” Later, the original “3.” and “4.” shortcuts are changed to “2.” and “3.”, respectively. Overall a superb video, but that is just something I noticed while watching.

      My original, unedited e-mail from 1997 was numbered 2, 3, and 4 because I had previously sent an e-mail outlining the 1st shortcut along with other info.

    I have a few videos I always come back to when I'm bored, and this is one of them. Every second is filled with a pure enjoyment that I can't put into words. Your slow progression to a crescendo of video gaming history unlike really any other, some of the best storytelling I've seen in a while, and generally some fantastic editing, and what I can only describe as a soundtrack because, although I don't think you made it, it's incredibly consistent and consistently incredible throughout. The first time I watched this video about Choco Mountain I felt more than I have with most full length movies, an experience I've only had about four times on this entire site over the course of many years. This is the kind of stuff that just inspires me to my very core, pushes me to do stuff, if not for myself, then for someone else out there in my own way, so, Summoning Salt, thank you

    This video has definitely got me into glitching...etc, it also has some aspect on cheat codes, like MrBean used to understand how the courses in MK Wii work. So I'm currently creating cheat codes using Hexidecimal codes, I think I did get one where the players were distorted, but that wasn't too useful.
