I was surprised by the 19 and I thought its not possible. When I saw the video and the use of glitches I understood why this time...

I just don't understand how a speedrun means exploit glitches.

It is impressive.

Because it's not a TRUE speed run, and it exploits glitches. What exactly don't you comprehend about that.

* I run 1 mile in 6 minutes

* Person B, runs it in 3 minutes but they took a shortcut/uses a car.

Are you still impressed by person B ?

Still an impressive feat of dexterity.

I don't know, this is pretty impressive no matter how you look at it. Ocarina of Time is not a short game. Otherwise, this would have been done like 15 years ago.

I dont know, using glitches and exploits to come through the game, that is like using a cheat to come to the endboss at the very beginning and then beating him. Glitches and exploits are like cheats, if you know them.

Absolutely, however, even finding these is impressive in itself.
