Gamers set new world record for Half-Life 2
Over the weekend, a group of gamers got together and played through Half-Life 2. They managed to beat the game in 1 hour, 27 minutes, and 51 seconds, successfully setting the world record for the fastest playthrough of the game.
This group of fourteen gamers, known as the SourceRuns Team, had spent, they claim, “Over 600 days of hard work,” prompting the name of their run. The video is called, “Half-Life 2 Done With a High Magnitude of Velocity”.
The team didn’t just play through the game, however. For those who are interested, they provided many details (via their documentation) about glitches that they exploited to save time and several other things. These details, for those who wish to see them, are linked on the team’s Youtube page.
Will another gamer (or group of gamers) come to unseat SourceRuns as the fastest time of beating Half-Life 2? Or will the SourceRuns record hold fast despite several attempts to wrest it away?
