Game Averaging

Each player goes through a game a little differently, and now there’s a very interesting way to examine the paths taken. I’ve seen two videos in which multiple playthroughs of a game are layered one on top of the other. The camera follows to victorious playthrough while showing what happened to the others as well.
There’s a SelectButton article on averaging a Super Mario World romhack at, and the original article about averaging Gradius at by R. LeFeuvre. The creator edited an emulator to record each playthrough and put them together into one video, but the Mac version is needed to complete it. I find it very interesting to see one single Mario, where apparently everyone stood at the same spot, break into a hundred as each playthrough had Mario go a different route.
