‘Resident Evil 7: Biohazard’

With every passing day, Gamers get younger, better at their craft and more creative in the ways they play the games… but this guy’s Madhouse run on ‘Resident Evil 7: Biohazard’ is just ridiculous!

From 8-bit Mario games to next-gen console masterpieces, streamers and speed-runners have beat almost every game in almost every way imaginable. Everyday you can find a broken record or innovative way to either play or challenge the gaming standards set by those who came before and conquered. But, as games grow more complex and nuanced, those select few who slash gameplay times in half or set virtually impossible run restrictions stand out like beaming gems in the rough. That’s why what this guy just did on ‘Resident Evil 7’ is so freaking insane… Find out just what he did that’s so crazy after the jump.



With an average playthrough time of about eight and a half hours, according to the website How Long To Beat, it was amazing when one player smashed the ‘Resident Evil 7: Biohazard’ record beating it at the hardest difficulty in just over three hours. Insane right? That means that gifted player can beat the game over twice as fast as the average player, or 20x as fast as I can get past the first 2 stages (but that’s neither here nor there, I’m awful). Well, someone took it to the next level.

Enter MrQuizzle, who guts ‘Resident Evil 7: Biohazard’ on Madhouse Difficulty, which randomizes game events, using ONLY a knife!? What is this guy, the “John Wick” of Resident Evil (wouldn’t it be amazing if ‘Resident Evil 7’ had a “pencil” mode)? With an overall complete time of a little under 3 and a half hours, MrQuizzle isn’t the fastest out there, but with the knife only restrictions it’s mind blowing he can even beat the game… let alone do it in near record time.

Check out the full Knife-Only speedrun for yourself below. Note: the video starts about one and a half minutes in after MrQuizzle’s self-promotional intro.

About The Author


Since his wee lad-dom, Pooya has been a sommelier of cinema. It was likely some acting bug, fallen from the dust riddled ruby curtains of an enchanted old stage that did it. Those cinematic scarabs must have burrowed deep into his brain, irreversibly altering his mind, turning the poor boy down a dismal path. From his earliest years the strange boy would aimlessly wander the aisles of countless video rental stores, amassing his trivial knowledge with vigor. These actions befuddled the boy’s parents, who still would lovingly oblige his unusual attraction to the motion picture. Often seeking refuge in the cushioned seating of his local movie theater, the odd adolescent would immerse himself in the scripted and effects riddled realities unfolding on the screen before him. During his collegiate years, he was twice spotted on stage performing bizarre theatrical rituals before awe-struck audiences. When he departed from academia, he left behind his youth in exchange for a labor routine, but the strange young man never lost his long-cultivated love of film. Recently, Pooya was approached by to join their budding team of entertainment bloggers. After hours of coaxing and an undisclosed number of honey jars, he accepted their offer. Finally he had come full circle. Finally, at, he was home.
