This guy has developed a program that can play games. It analyzes a memory snapshot each second and decides what qualifies as progress, and then tries things until it figures it out. That's a very simplistic way to put it, but he explains it all in the video.

I was personally most amused by Tetris. It didn't *technically* fail.

Skynet much?!

I laughed pretty hard at that "winning" move in Tetris. I like to think playfun was completely satisfied with itself after that move, looking down it's nose at the Tetris code... "Indeed."

Oh man, I've used that winning technique myself at times! Very cool program!
