Some dude beat every Soulsborne game without taking a SINGLE hit

There’s something magical about watching a professional Souls player. The peeps that do speedruns or no-hit playthroughs of the game have this practised yet seemingly innate knowledge of the games that from an outsider’s perspective looks almost robotic. Dodging every attack, nailing every critical and knowing the map like it was tattooed onto their chests. It’s skill and some might even say an art form all of its own and whilst many have accomplished no-hit runs of the games, someone just made history by successfully completing a no-hit run of all the Soulsborne games BACK TO BACK.

On the eve of the release of Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, The_Happy_Hob, a popular streamer amongst the no-hit run and speed run community on Twitch, sat down, got cosy in his chair, and streamed his no-hit run of the series. This would include playing through Demon’s Souls, Darks Souls 1, Dark Souls 2, Dark Souls 3 and Bloodborn. The rules were simple: The games could be played in any order, but Hob had to take zero hits, including ones that don’t involve taking damage, would be allowed. Any hit would require a restart of the entire series. Fall damage was seen as okay because it is a necessity in some of the Soulsborne games to progress.

And the mad man actually did it. Successfully completing what is being called a “God Run”, The_Happy_Hob completed every game without taking a single hit, making him the first person in history to do so. A goal he has been striving towards for years has finally been completed and captured for all of the Internet to see. There’s a great clip going round containing the moment he actually succeeded and, in his adrenaline-fuelled state, gave his dog the biggest hug AND IT WAS JUST SO WHOLESOME. The entire stream is available to watch on his Twitch channel and I highly recommend watching it (if you have the time, it’s very long) just for the sheer pay off of seeing this man achieve his dreams.

God Run Speed, Hob. God Run Speed.

    Is the guy who also failed his first attempt by getting hit by the final DS1 boss after an 11 hour stream?
    I saw that reaction and it was bloody heartbreaking.

      Yeah, that’s him. That was a year ago. Never give up on your dreams!

        I fear I must admit that I find this “dream” to be a complete waste of time.
        Like, honestly, can’t the guy find something more productive to do with his spare time?!

          I get where you coming from, but no matter how ridiculous the dream may seem to others, a dream coming true is worthy of celebration! It’s a rare, inspring thing to witness.

          That’s a fair assessment, but just because something seems wasteful or meaningless to you, doesn’t mean it’s not everything to someone else. Live and let live man, I’m sure you too have your own dreams you’d like to accomplish.

            I do not begrudge someone doing something they enjoy.
            My comment above does seem rather judgemental. I’m actually always of the opinion “to each their own”.
            I just cannot help but personally feel that, with all the other games out there, all the other activities that this world has to offer, this kind of activity is wasteful.
            Hell, I’d be bored stuff attempting something like this.
            Once again, for me personally.

            If he’s having fun, let him do it. I’ll just sit in the corner and grumble about kids these days.

            Again nothing wrong with your opinion, I totally get where you’re coming from. I have a friend whose the same way if he sees me rewatching a movie lol. This really is one of those times where if we asked “Why?”the person would probably respond “Because I can.” It really is an awesome feat and I hope he gets some sort of recognition for it. Kids these days give us more than enough reason to grumble haha I also hope I wasn’t coming across as hostile lol

            Jeez man, you were about as far from hostile and someone can get! Ha!

            What this guy is a bloody amazing feat. I love the Souls games. 3, I was never able to complete. Got right near the end, couldn’t defeat a boss.
            I’d try it every now and again. Then my PS got stolen and the mere thought of starting again just left me tired.

            Damn that really sucks and I know exactly how you feel. Never platinumed Uncharted Drake’s Fortune because my PS3 was stolen and I was well into my crushing playthrough and the save was never sent to the cloud so I get why starting over would be daunting more so with a Souls game because of the time you spend leveling.

            I had more than 200 hours of playtime…
            I nearly cried when I downloaded it again on my new machine, hoping for a cloud save…and finding nothing.

            Same could apply to sport; the champs are the ones who do only that one thing, all else be damned.

            And the smart ones realize this.
            When GSP walked away from the UFC and his Welterweight title, he said he’d sacrificed too much to stay on top.
