    This is the man to beat!

    Piotr Delgado Kusielczuk, known as “The Mexican Runner” on Twitch, has set a new milestone by being the first person in the world to beat all 714 NES games! And he accomplished this feat without using any cheats, a Game Genie, or even stage-select codes!

    His NES Mania started in May 28th 2014 with Whomp 'Emon after his friends jokingly suggested to him to complete all NES games from A-Z and ended yesterday, February 26th 2017, with Super Mario 3.

    All in all, it took him 3,435 hours to finish the 714 games, which included all 679 titles released in North America and 35 PAL exclusives. While some games were quickly completed, others that didn't have a dedicated "ending" were played until the game began looping or there was simply no other way to progress.

    The patience and dedication invested by "The Mexican Runner" is surely admirable. And being a world's first, his achievement is surely going to inspire others to undertake such endeavors, so it probably won't be long before we hear about those!

    Now he has to have a lot of free time to achieve something else... How about SuperFamicom/SNES games?
    Sadly I don't have that much free time nowadays.

    This is an amazing accomplishment, and TMR is an all around cool dude anyway.

    I'm not sure what's up with the replies in the thread. There is an appropriate subforum for your conversation and it's not here; try to stay on topic.

    I'm more impressed that he was able to play all the games, given how much patience was required.

    It's not really impressive. If people threw money at me on Twitch to play NES games all day, i'd do it too. Hell i'll clear SNES, N64, PS1, you name it. I'll do it for money.

    Well, that's one hell of an achievement. Mad props to him.
    Still, he only finished officially released games. To be completely done, he should also play fanmande nes games and the bootlegs :creep:

    I find that very nice, especially since i seen him play some frustrating games i wouldn't be able to last 5 minutes for. To be honest, i thought there was lot more than 714 games for nes, not to mention he had tot take time for games done quick speed run practice/attendance. So I mean maybe if the wii u library of games was actually smaller than nes, now is something to think about. :unsure:
