Doom 2 was the first game that timed players as they finished levels, and the game also allowed you to share your recorded demos. This means that the speedrun community, which arguably began with the game, became very competitive very quickly. It’s been years since anyone has improved the best time through the game.
The old record has now been broken, and you can watch the playthrough above.
This improves the previous record by Looper (30uv2325) set in Dec. 2010. by 22 seconds. Previous record before that was by Radek Pecka (30uv2609) set in Dec. 2003, YouTuber “Zero Master” posted on the video. “So this is the second improvement in the last 10 years, though I don’t think we will have to wait that long before we see the 23 minute mark broken.”
