If speedrunners have been in the news lately, it’s usually because of the boom in interest in Elden Ring. You’d think that enthusiasts had forgotten about older games – fortunately, they haven’t.
YouTube-blogger Muty, for example, managed to set a new standard of fast passing of original Half-Life – by hook or by crook he managed to pass the storyline of Valve’s masterpiece in just 26 minutes and 38 seconds. This is 4 seconds faster than the previous record (set, by the way, by him).
It’s worth noting that, purely theoretically, this is by no means the limit. In theory, you could run the game in 21 minutes. – However, such a result was only possible with the help of special scripts.
