WATCH: Gamer completely loses it when he breaks a 20-year-old record on the N64 GoldenEye

Making gaming history in just 52 seconds.

Released in August 1997, the N64 version of GoldenEye is still considered to be one of the greatest video games ever made.

Back on the date of the anniversary we did a bit of a deep dive on the game-changer (heh heh), which you can read all about right here.

Since the game was released, fans have been attempting to set the speed-run record for the opening Dam level.

Since 2002, when聽Bryan Bosshardt completed the run in just 53 seconds, that is the record that has remained in place.

Another 127 people in the 15 years since then have also got that 53 second time, leading many to believe that was the absolute fastest it could be completed in.

At which point, we'd like to introduce you to聽Karl Jobst, the Australian game who has set the new record, with just 52 seconds.

Through a combination of pure luck and the weird speed jump given by getting shot, Jobst was finally able to set the new benchmark, and his reaction is pure, sweary, ecstatic euphoria.

His run kicks off pretty much immediately in the video below, followed by six minutes of celebrations.
