Speed runs.

I've been going to Google Video lately and watching Speed runs. Search for "Speedrun," "speed run," and "speed attack" and there's all sorts of videos of people beating different games... Metroid, Mario, Zelda, etc. They are awesome

I saw one, don't know if was on Google or now, of someone beating Half-Life in 40 minutes.

Not that impressive considering they are using emulators with multiple save states and the slow down/speeding up of the games at certain times.
