Zelda is a really cool game, and you can easily lose yourself in it. The same is certainly true for Breath of the Wild. But playing through 50 times in one day? Sounds more exhausting than entertaining, doesn't it?

No chance to play Zelda yet? Here you can find a Nintendo Switch.

Zelda BotW: Speedrunner finishes game 50 times within 23 hours

How much fun Player 5 had is difficult to judge. But he made it. Rushing through the world of Hyrule 50 times was the mission. And the speedrunner did it. In case you're wondering what speedrunners are, here's a short digression:

Speedrunners simply try to get through the game as quickly as possible, using a variety of categories. The goal is not (always) to play the game to 100%, but simply to see the credits as fast as possible.

In the end, Player 5 took 22 hours and 34 minutes to complete its mission. Considering that it took me several months to complete the game once, that's pretty impressive. Shortest run: 24:16. Longest run: 25:23. The young gentleman is not only fast, but also consistent.

The reward for this amazing feat is a record and the incredible experience of playing BotW 50 times, while I'm still thinking about maybe playing it a second time.
