Speedrunner beats Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 in under four minutes

YouTube user “GeorgeThePlushie” has set a new world record speedrun for Neversoft’s Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 2 by beating the game in just three and a half minutes.

The any-percent run was completed in 3:26:41, with the total gameplay time coming in at 2:50. He was originally aiming for a sub 3:40 run, which he blew out of the water. While the way the tricks were chained and landed perfectly was impressive, the most amazing part of this run is how quickly the menus are navigated.

Runs like this amaze me, considering that I spent several months of my life as a child trying to beat this game. Even 14 years later I think I’d struggle to complete it in under 15 minutes, let alone four.
