Speed Runs

Speed running (trying to complete a videogame in the fastest time possible) is almost as old as gaming itself. At least, it's almost as old as games that have a definite end point or staging points, since speedrunning a game with infinitely repeating levels is Sisyphean.

Speed run of Super Mario Bros. done on October 9 2004. Available in normal and high quality. Author's comments: This is the cleanest, best looking SMB run I've done, although some levels can be finished slightly faster with better tactics so I estimate that I could do better by five to seven tenths overall. Easily the best part is in 8-3 with the Hammer Bros (I was very surprised I didn't die). Enjoy :)

Speed run of Final Fantasy VII in 85 segments, completed on June 4 2007. Available in four versions: low/normal quality DivX, and normal/low quality H.264 MPEG-4. Author's comments: And it's finally done. This is my first speed run ever, and probably the last one for awhile. I've been working on this project for over a year, and a lot has happened. I've seen the end of two years of college, got married, moved into my first apartment, rebuilt my computer, had surgery on both feet...

Speed run of Final Fantasy II in 38 segments completed on December 19 2005. Available in low quality only, video quality is poor when moving in the overworld. Timing note: Game's timer is referenced at its last visible point, then real time from then to final damage numbers appearing is added. Resulting time is rounded up to the next whole minute since the game timer could've have been :59 seconds at the last visible moment. Author's comments: First, I would like to thank my friend Kyle for...

Speed run of Resident Evil 0 on normal skill in 7 segments completed on July 7 2005. Available in three versions: low quality, normal quality, and 60 fps high quality. Author's comments: It took me a lot longer than I planned to do a better run. My 1:59 was crap and I only posted it to have the 100th game at SDA be '0'. I hadn't looked to see what kind of times anyone had posted before I finished that run. I looked at shin's Japanese site after I did and saw a time of 1:43:57 listed. I...

Speed run of Grand Theft Auto III with 100% in 18 segments, completed on April 3 2007. Available in five versions: low/normal quality DivX, and normal/high/low quality H.264 MPEG-4. Author's comments: Welcome to my GTAIII 100% speedrun, my most ambitious project so far. I can't thank Pweisger enough, for making the original topic that I then stole and for making the first set of videos that I took some ideas from and used to find improvements. Without those I probably wouldn't have made this....

Speed run of Turok: Dinosaur Hunter on Hard mode, completed on April 9 2004. Author's comments: ROAAARRRR!!!~~... I haven't heard of anyone speed running this game. It was really fun taking the game apart. Commentary time! I stagger my saves in case I do something stupid. That way I can reverse fate! ----------------------------------------------------------- LEVEL 1: OUTSET (sounds better than hub, fool) ----------------------------------------------------------- - Hitting the switch before...

Low% "secret world assisted" speed run of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes in 33 segments, completed on February 25 2005. Author's comments: This is a 20% "out-of-bounds" run of Metroid Prime 2: Echoes, in which I skip two "essential" items; the echo visor and the cobalt translator (and all non-essential items). In a nutshell, it was a quick and dirty experiment to see whether 20% could be made to work under speed conditions. While I wanted the run to be reasonably tight,...

Speed run of Baldur's Gate 2: Shadows of Amn in 12 segments completed on October 25 2005. Available in normal, high and low quality. Author's comments: Hello folks, I am DAMURDOC and I am here to present you a Speedrun of one of the best game, if not the best game on PC so far in history. I played BG2 for 4 years now, and I'm still playing as you can see. I guess I will never get tired of playing Baldur's gate 2, I'ts like a drug... my drug. When I first discovered SDA I was shocked to see a...

Speed run of Super Mario Bros. 2 done on August 1 2005. Available in low and normal quality. Author's comments: I wasn't satisfied with my old 10:25 speed run so I kept hammering away on the game. After working on lots of small things and trying out some new stuff, I managed to get a time of 9:42 which is well beyond what I originally thought possible for myself. The execution on this run was very good in my opinion, but as always there is room for improvement. The biggest improvement is in the...

Speed run of Indiana Jones and the Emperor's Tomb, done in 58 segments across 10 files plus ending, completed on March 13 2006. Available in four qualities: low/normal/high/insane quality DivX. Author's comments: Preface: As I started this speedrun, ignorant of the pains and horrors to come, I wrote it with the intent that you could read what I did and why, while making brief jokes to break up what would be a straightforward and boring comments file. I was wrong. After a few months, and only a...

Speed run of Final Fantasy Mystic Quest in 21 segments completed on October 22 2005. Note: time is the standard SDA measure of real time since the game's timer is only visible on the file loading screen. Author's comments: My Crystalis commentary was rather long and my fingers are getting rather tired - so I'll keep this semi-brief. I had made a run attempt on this game back in the early summer, and my time came out to 3:30. I sent it in before my cable was turned back on (about a week before)....

Speed run of Rena's scenario on Star Ocean: The Second Story in 87 segments, completed on May 17 2007. Available in five versions: low/normal quality DivX, and normal/high/low quality H.264 MPEG-4. Author's comments: I entered into this game expecting around 10 hours to speedrun. A lot more battles were also expected, which is why such heavy preparation was put into the first disc. Some of the preps really did help cut down the time, but others... well, guess I overestimated what the AI was...

Speed run of Soldier of Fortune 2: Double Helix on Soldier of Fortune (hardest) difficulty in 62 segments, completed on May 1 2007. Available in six versions: low/normal quality DivX, and normal/high/insane/low quality H.264 MPEG-4. Author's comments: Tip for the viewer: DivX/XviD can't cope with the detail levels and high motion of this game so I can't recommend anyone to watch them. The only reason there are LQ and MQ XviD versions is because Radix still requires them. Also, from part 40 and...

Speed run of Super Mario RPG: Legend of the Seven Stars done in 13 segments, completed on August 22 2004 Author's comments: RPG speedruns are fairly scarce for three reasons: 1) LOOOOOONG 2) Slow 3) Random! Comparatively, Legend of the Seven Stars is very fast paced and short when compared to classic Square and Enix RPGs. Another great thing about its gameplay is that enemies can be avoided with skill and practice and battles can be made all the easier by mastering the science (and, at times,...
