Bleeding Cool reports that Piotr Delgado Kusielczuk, or as he’s known on Twitch, The Mexican Runner has “set the bar for every old-school NES collector and gamer.” Delgado Kusielczuk has beat every game ever put out for the Nintendo Entertainment System. All 714 games. The best part? He recorded video footage of ALL OF IT.
Here’s how Piotr Delgado Kusielczuk was dubbed The Mexican Runner…
According to Unocero, The Mexican Runner “bears that name because he started doing streams of speedruns (sessions to finish the games as fast as possible) in a small community that is dedicated to this field of video games.” Finish as quickly as possible?
It all started as a joke when a friend told him he should give it a try…
When his friend told him he should try to beat every Nintendo game, he had to think about it for a second. But, then decided to take on that monster-of-a-challenge like the champion he is. Kusielczuk! Kusielczuk! Kusielczuk!
But, then he actually did it — this dude beat every single NES game!
He crushed all 714 games. To give you an idea of how hard that is, try to remember if you’ve ever even beaten any NES game in your whole miserable life. You haven’t. Now, imagine how hard it would be if you did, and then multiply that by 714. What? Anyway, Bleeding Cool says “This is a feat that no other mass collector on the planet can actively claim with legitimacy, not even well-known NES enthusiasts like James Rolfe (AVGN) or Pat Contri (The NES Punk).”
He didn’t cheat or even use Game Genie…
Kusielczuk beat every one of the 8-bit games in his NES library and he did it without using a single code — other than the code of honor that he lives by, which prohibits this player from living anyway except for straight up.
What’s next for “The Mexican Runner?”
I’m gonna see if he wants to help me take on that impossible underwater level from “Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles” for NES. Then, we’ll probably go get froyo like a couple of bros, or maybe my new best friend will come up with something more badass for us to do. He’s pretty chill.
