Because sometimes playing only two Mega Man games simultaneously with the same input just doesn't satisfy. Presenting Mega Man 3, 4, 5, and 6 - at the same ding-donged time. The music alone will drive you insane.

The most merciful thing in the world, I think, is the inability of the human mind to correlate all its contents. We live on a placid island of ignorance in the midst of black seas of infinity, and it was not meant that we should voyage far. The sciences, each straining in its own direction, have hitherto harmed us little; but some day the piecing together of dissociated knowledge will open up such terrifying vistas of reality, and of our frightful position therein, that we shall either go mad from the revelation or flee from the light into the peace and safety of a new dark age.
-H.P. Lovecraft

^ I thought it was apropos.

Did Ned Flanders just sneak in and make a post?

Woah. [this is fucked up]
NESvideos needs to get with the 21st century and start uploading its stuff to YouTube. Or someone else will.

Needs a batshitinsane tag. This is so awesome, the hardcore NES playing scene really is pushing the boundaries of human understanding.

It won't be long after brain-computer interfaces are commercialised that they will be hacked and used to manipulate NES bytecode in real time. There is no limit to the truly hardcore.

Next project: Oblivion, Civilization II, The Oregon Trail and Zork.

Yeah, needs a YouTube/Google Video/etc. link. This brings back memories of the bad old days of video on the interweb.

I once saw an older fellow simultaneously play through *both* players on the cooperative two-player light-gun arcade game, Time Crisis II -- a gun in each hand -- all on a single credit on each machine.

It was near Washington D.C., so I figured he was an ex-spook or something. Kinda gave me the heebie-jeebies.

The two-Megaman version is on Google Video. No sign of the four-game equivalent.

All right, I'm uploading it to Google video now... I'll get back to you guys in a bit.

Er, aren't these made using, in the words of the Google Video descriptiom, using "savestates and slowdown?" If so, then this is not "pushing the boundaries of human understanding," but instead those of patience and nerditude.

The video is great, but is it at the same time? The video itself even says "If you think this is being played in real time, visit...", and the TAS site explains how their videos are achieved through clever use of tools. Still awesome, though.

It's not at the same time in real-time, but I think getting the same sequence of controller commands to win four different games simultaneously is still pushing the boundaries of human understanding.

Here's the google video page, looks pretty bad but hey.
linky

And they are played with an emulator and slowdown - frame by frame in fact. The same input is used from the beginning, which is what makes it interesting.

I worked for an arcade in Gainesville, Florida for a few months during the early 90s and this was my favorite thing to do, with all the gun games. Just not on one credit, though.

Free credits RULED.
