Homeboy's got some mad skills.

Watch as Karl Jobst speedruns through 3 classic games, expertly using the downtime in each run to make progress in the other games. The whole run takes 51 minutes, ending with a well-earned "holy shit" from Karl.

Life well spent. Ridiculous result, but how does someone get to this place in their life without wanting to flush their head down the toilet?

You don't have any hobbies?

I wad kind of hoping this would be multiple people running those games like a race. This is really awesome on its own though.

Gaming is obviously a hobby, but I get too anxious & bummed at myself for playing for too long. Dudes got good game taste.

Aww come on don't bring this dude down :(

If he wants to dedicate his free time to his passion then that's his choice. I think what he did is a pretty cool achievement.

Yep, what's worse is people talking about videogames and not even playing them. Being in a member of a videogame forum, what a ridiculous thought...

I recall some other video of someone beating 3-4 Mega Man games simultaneously, supposedly using one simultaneous controller input. I just can't wrap my head around that being possible and I wish I could find that video.

A simultaneous Pokemon speedrun could be an interesting strategic prospect, given the bonus XP you get through trading - would it be worth swapping acquired Pokemons between the two running games?

...and actually, for a game that predates shoulder buttons, that could be a smart way of making use of a controller: having it set up to control *both* games, or isolate a single game if a shoulder button is pressed. Would reduce the downtime of swapping over.

It's like you somehow managed to put into words someone who is worse than a billion Hitlers.

The triathlon was something started by RWhiteGoose iirc

Karl is #6 in Goldeneye rankings, im not sure on his SM64 and OOT times, but getting 4 minutes under the combined record is pretty good.

I look forward to seeing this become a thing. Would love to see some more serious speedrunners attempting to break this guy's record. Videos of people quickly switching controllers and trying to optimize the runs would be hilarious and fun.

I feel the same way about people who make disparaging comments towards others on internet message boards.
