Two Gamers Who Can Beat Myst Faster Than You

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.
