In a feat that not a lot of people can boast, Piotr Delgado Kusielczuk, better known as “The Mexican Runner” on Twitch, has set the bar for every old-school NES collector and gamer. He has successfully defeated all 714 games released for the Nintendo Entertainment System, and he has the video footage to prove it.
Without using cheats, a Game Genie, or even stage-select codes, Kusielczuk started running through every game in the 8-bit library since 2014, after a friend made a joke that he should try it. 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). Hell, there aren’t even competitive players who can make this boast, which means every old-school player who claims to be the best now has a new challenge to beat. As for Kusielczuk, there’s no official word of what he’ll be doing next yet, the achievement is only a few hours old. But I wouldn’t mind seeing him take a crack at all 721 titles for the SNES.
