The lights are on
There are speed runs, and then there are freaking speed runs. As in, the beating an entire game in under two minutes kind of speed. Seriously.
In these two videos, YouTube users guptill89 and Arkarian01 show just how well they've mastered Myst. Guptill89 completes the game in 1:45, while Arkarian blasts through in a mind-numbing 1:16 -- supposedly the decreased time is due to a faster processor on Arkarian's part.
Neither of the videos are actually new -- the 1:45 record is from 2007, while Arkarian01's is from 2009 -- but they are an impressive showing of skilled gamers memorizing a game that was utterly perplexing when it came out over 15 years ago.

wow. That is all.
My brain is actually having trouble processing what I just saw. Good gravy!
Dude,thats awesome! My cousins and I teamed up together to beat that game. it took us like 2 years and a whole notebook lol And now we are working on Riven =D
a. I cannot even find a computer capable of running that fast, and
b. I kinda expected him to go through each of the levels and bring back those missing pages, though apparently they're not necessary to get the best ending.
I agree with Shisnopolis.
That's cool never played the game but its still pretty cool
It makes me smile that in the amount of time it takes me to brush my teeth and comb my hair, someone would have beaten a game that has taken people hours on end.
I completed myst but people are not thinking how much time and puzzle solving the game takes the first time around
Myst fails at non-life.
Thank you, Joseph Breen. I like your comment. It helped clarify why these speed runs are of any concern to me.
This is usually how most game speed runs go. It's only after months [or years] of people playing a game and sharing discoveries that it's possible for guys like these to pull of such crazy speed runs.
It's a team effort [sort of].
I recall this game making me cry once...this is unreal.
Yikes. I blinked for a minute 16 seconds and missed it.
wtf i s the storyline for this game?
