Despite its age, many people continue to play and enjoy Super Mario Bros., with a particular set of gamers focusing not just on playing it, but beating it as fast as possible. Competition remains strong within this community and, if anything, is likely to grow even stronger now that the world record has broken.

Kosmic, a noted Super Mario Bros. speedrunner, has posted a video of his record breaking run that you can see below. He posted an official time of 4:57.194, which is just 0.05 seconds quicker than the previous record held by Darbian, who sent out a tweet acknowledging his competitors accomplishment. This time difference comes out to three frames of animation, so the competition is obviously quite tight.

Considering how long people have been playing the classic game, I think it’s safe to assume that people will continue pursuing faster times.
