Now, think about this. In the speedrun communities for Paper Mario and Paper Mario the Thousand Year Door (as well as likely Mario & Luigi Superstar Saga), a lot of major glitches are... very difficult to pull off, and require frame precision. Like some of those in Son of a Glitch's Paper Mario the Thousand Year Door video:
Or the ones in this Paper Mario video:
Or this one, where hitting a block for 416 years straight crashes the game:
Now what will it be like when this sort of glitch hunter/super determined speedrunner starts trying to break the game?
Cause Paper Jam is broken even for people playing it casually. Add frame by frame play and tool assistance, and the game is pretty much going to fall over and die within about 15 seconds. We're gonna start seeing out of bounds glitches everywhere, events being skipped at will, the story being broken into fifty million pieces and large technical aspects of the game being rewritten on the fly. Heck, if we're lucky, we might even see remote code injection like for Super Mario World.
What do you think?
