Have you ever wondered if it’s possible to beat a video game blindfolded? Well, one incredible gamer not only did it, but also set a Guinness World Record in the process. Super Mario Bros., the iconic Nintendo game, has always presented a challenge to players, but this player took it to a whole new level by completing it without being able to see. Talk about a true gaming legend!
According to Eurogamer, a gamer who goes by the name Crescendo recently posted a video on his personal YouTube channel, showcasing his record-breaking feat. In an astonishing display of skill and determination, he completed Super Mario Bros. in just 11 minutes and 55 seconds, beating the previous record of 14 minutes and 46 seconds set in 2016.
Crescendo, who is also a talented musician, brought his professional characteristics into play during this incredible challenge. Some parts of the game required him to count each second with precision in order to execute a series of flawless jumps. It’s a skill that not everyone possesses, but Crescendo’s musical background surely helped him master it.
When asked about his achievement, Crescendo shared, “I came up with the idea on May 29 and started testing it on June 19. After that, I tried it 1 or 2 times a day, each time lasting about 1 hour. In total, I spent up to 40 hours practicing for this challenge.” His dedication and commitment to this endeavor are truly commendable.
But Crescendo doesn’t want to keep his success to himself. In the near future, he plans to create a video guide to help other speedrunners or anyone interested in attempting this audacious challenge. By sharing his strategies and techniques, he hopes to inspire others to break the world record and push the boundaries of what is possible in gaming.
It’s worth mentioning that Crescendo accomplished this extraordinary feat just days after participating in Summer Games Done Quick 2021, a charity event that raised a staggering $2.8 million for Doctors Without Borders. His passion for gaming not only brings joy and entertainment to others but also contributes to making a positive impact on the world.
As we celebrate Crescendo’s phenomenal achievement, let’s marvel at the incredible possibilities that arise when passion meets talent. If you’re interested in witnessing his blindfolded triumph for yourself, be sure to check out the captivating video on his YouTube channel.
