I think we can all agree that speed runs are impressive glitchless or not. Hearing, however, that someone was able to beat Earthbound, which is an RPG, in less than 4 hours is absolutely insane! I don't think I made it to the second boss in under 4 hours of gameplay when I played! The now current record of 3:52:13 was set by Andrew Woolston, who had just lost his record on the game a week earlier when someone beat his time!
I'm still impressed anyone can beat this game so quickly. Watch Andy's new record below.
