FTW: TheMexicanRunner attempts to beat every NES game!

This very well could be the most interesting to happen on Twitch since TwitchPlaysPokemon - especially if you didn't like TPP. TheMexicanRunner, known for having held and currently holding world records in speedrunning Battletoads, Contra, and several other games, has now embarked on an even more epic quest: beating every winnable NES game licensed in the US. That's 709 games!! As of now, he's finished 28, including classics like Super Mario Bros., The Legend of Zelda, Metroid, Metal Gear, and, the most time-consuming of all (so far), Ultima III. It's not all classics though; he's also conquered the infamous Silver Surfer and the cult hit, Monster Party, and has The Trolls in Crazyland as an upcoming game. Each game is selected by a viewer chosen by a raffle at the end of each game, so you could even get to pick his next game.

For an ordinary human, this might be an impossible task, but this is the guy who speedruns Battletoads and beats Ninja Gaiden without breaking a sweat. I can't guarantee that he'll actually accomplish this challenge, but he's still going strong so far and excelling at every genre of classic Nintendo games.

If that sounds up your alley, check him out on his Twitch channel and follow him on Twitter to find out when he'll be streaming next (almost daily). And here's an updated list of the games he's beaten and what he has left.

Update: NESMania now has its own website! Check it out!
