Video: This Guy Sets Video Game Record And Goes Apeshit. Your Life Is Still Better Than His.

If it’s possible to feel like a winner and have no one else think so, this is exhibit A.

I love this guy’s spirit tho.  Goldeneye is the most critical fucken thing in the world and validated every date he’s never been on and every family meal he’s missed.

Good on you Karl Yobst.  You Are The Goldeneye God.

    From the comments of that video… to help clarify his nerdness…

    For those who are unsure about why this run is so special: to achieve 0:52 you need 3 guard boosts plus a perfect gate opening, and of course very precise execution. Not even 2 boosts, which in itself is rare, can guarantee a 0:52, and neither a 3 boosts run with a slow gate opening can.

    A guard boost on Goldeneye saves around ~0.3s and boosts are less likely to happen on Agent difficulty due to guards’ low accuracy. Getting a 3 boost run on Dam Agent is EXTREMELY rare (Karl only got 3 of those in 250 hours). The gate also has a luck factor: odds are very low to get an instante gate opening (like Karl did) with 2 boosts before reaching it. And after that you still have to hit a perfect lockshot (which is quite difficult aswell) and perform a very precise run to the end.

    0:53 was first achieved by Bryan Bosshardt in September 2002. When Karl achieved 0:52, 128 people had 53 as a world record (was the most common Goldeneye world record). Dam Agent 0:52 was thought to be impossible by the community for over 15 years.

Got something to say about this... don't be shy!
