Watch a man run, jump, and crawl for a Half-Life: Alyx speedrun

Speedrunner Buffet Time has drawn attention to the remarkably athletic world of Half-Life: Alyx speedruns at this year's Summer Games Done Quick.

These guys made a real-time 16-hour flight from LA to Dubai in Microsoft Flight Simulator
