We, well most of us, have tryed playing through Super Mario Bros. and we’ve all tried playing through on a speed run. Going level to level, as fast as you can, without dying and not everyone makes it out alive. Those that have, like gamer Andrew Gardikis, have some pretty sweet bragging rights. One thing that separates him from us, Andrew did it in five minutes flat. Now imagine having to repeat that feat while Shigeru Miyamoto, the man who gave birth to the plumbers a quarter century ago, watched. Not so easy now is it?
