One of the hardest challenges in gaming is going up against a professional Super Smash Bros. Melee player. However, an even harder challenge is shooting every single name in the game’s credits sequence. It took nearly 20 years, but someone has finally managed to do that, and the world will never be the same.
YouTube user Martin “Pork”y Zarate posted the feat on their channel, hitting all 190 names in the mini-game with pinpoint accuracy. Getting half of the names is a challenge in its own right because of how fast they can go, but getting all of them seemed downright impossible. And for 20 years, it seemed to be.
The player’s technique didn’t make use of a traditional grip on the GameCube controller, instead using a pecking motion with the fire button to hit every name as quickly as possible.
