The Asian Standard - these are generally recordings of games played up to Asian standards. Specifically, a TAS player
- aims for fastest time
- takes damage to save time
- abuses programming errors in the game
- manipulates luck
Acceptable times for a TAS are 11 minutes and 50 seconds to complete Super Mario Bros 3, but that's just barely good enough.
B: Whoa did you see this TAS? He beat Super Mario Bros 2 from start to finish in 8 minutes and 16 seconds!!
A: I play like this all the time.
