Forums - Nintendo Discussion - New World Record: Mario 64 beaten in 6 minutes 41 seconds

0-star runs aren't that popular, 16 Star, 70 Star and 120 Star are where it's at.

Yeah if it's exploiting glitches and bugs it's not much of a speed run. It's an exploit.



Its cool seeing glitches but surely these speed runs are classified into two categories for these records? glitches vs normal.



 

 

I don't get people complaining about speedruns like this. That's why there are multiple different categories to run, each with their own set of rules. The 0-star run clearly takes a massive amount of practice and skill to do, so I don't see how it would be invalid simply because it's done using glitches. A game can be run in different ways, and none of the 5 categories for SM64 are less worthy than the others.

This. I also don't acknowledge sports records in football if they pick up the ball with their hands and throw into the goal. I mean, sure, they can physically do it, but the rules of the game are pretty clear.

The's nothing wrong with using glitches because the are many categories for speed running, for those complaining about glitches Smash Bros. Melee's entire competitive scene is built around them.

Well, considering I don't like Melee because of the glitches, I'd say I'm consistent at least, lol. But people can play games however they want. That's kind of the point. I just won't recognize records
