I love these things – ghosting games that were never intended to be ghosted, speed-runs, playing FPS’ as a pacifist…

So today, when I stumbled upon a post on the NeoGAF forums discussing NotEntirelySure’s completion of Super Mario Bros. with a score of just 500 points I was pretty damn impressed. That’s the lowest score you can achieve in the game – by taking all the shortcuts, avoiding all the coins, jumping over (as opposed to on) the Goombas – and it’s taken 19 years to think up and execute the most humble play through of Super Mario Bros I’ve ever seen.

Like ‘Twitch Plays Pokemon’, the 9 minute video is oddly watchable, particularly the incredibly well executed 8 – 1 pit jump.
