Someone beat Fallout 3 in 15 minutes!

These speedruns are starting to get a bit ridiculous with a user now managing to complete Bethesda's Fallout 3 in a quarter of an hour
Speedrunning is a pretty weird way of playing games - basically getting through an entire story in as little time as possible. This pretty much always includes exploiting issues with the games code to clip through annoying barriers or move faster - anything to get to the end quicker.
Now, a new record has been set for speed running Fallout 3, and it's taken less than 15 minutes. It's worth checking out this whole video from Rydou, complete with annotations.
He uses the popular speedboost applied when you quick save and quickload while getting crippled which makes travelling a lot faster. There's a mixture of skill and luck in every step of this playthough, and you can be pretty sure that this took a huge number of attempts to complete. If you ever wanted to give something like this a go, there are copious guides and notes. And obviously this is no way to play the game if you haven't completed it before!
