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 God of War on God difficulty in 20 segments completed on April 4 2006. Available in six versions: normal/low quality DivX, and normal/high/insane/low quality H.264 MPEG-4. Author's comments: First, let me say thanks to Prism for creating the first speedrun of this game. Without his run I wouldn't have started mine. Thanks to Radix for creating and maintaining this website. When watching this run, I think you will be surprised that there is a relatively low amount of combat....

Speed run of Chrono Cross in 50 segments, with two verions of the 50th segment to get both good and bad endings. Available in three versions: normal, high, and low quality DivX. Author's comments: First of all, I'd like to thank Professor_Plump, Genji, Arrow, and Enhasa for all the help/support they gave me. Of course, thanks to Radix, Nate, and everyone who posted in the topic as well. Thanks go to the people behind ePSXe (and plug-in makers) as well, since, without that program, testing...

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...
