    I'm going to be smart and not even try speedrunning because I think my gamer OCD will kick in and then there goes my weekend lol.

    After reading this I attempted it on Kirby's Dreamland and got 13:42 pretty good considering the fastest I could find was 11:50.

    I know I don't have the skill or dedication required to pump out speedruns, but I enjoy watching others; there's a few incredible Dark Souls ones on Youtube for example. One guy completes in without using glitches in under an hour. AN HOUR!!

    I had no idea the UK side of GR was so into speedrunning; that's so cool. But is makes sense with your Sonic love. The only thing I've ever been close to "speeding" through is MGS4. Start to finish in two hours. Hardly "fast"

    I tried to beat the SEGA Rally Championship world record set by Justin Towell, author of this article, but it was a fruitless attempt. Justin, if you read this, pleas tell me, HOW DID YOU DO IT?
  • GR_JustinTowell - January 3, 2013 1:13 a.m.

    First played it on Saturn in 1996. Suffice to say I have had a lot of practice :)
  • DREAMCASTSATURN - January 3, 2013 7:30 a.m.

    I think you're missing the point with the 'first game you want to speedrun'. Most people start with their all-time favorite game because they love that game and want to try it. Any game is good to start off with.

    The only time I have ever been "speedrunning" is in Mario Kart, and I am proud to say I got an incredible time on DK mountain before my wii broke.
  • kursedkey - January 1, 2013 6:46 p.m.

    The only game that I have ever tried to speedrun is Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D, and I suck at it. But the best suggestion that I have is to be up to date on all of the glitches in the game, and to practice them nonstop.
  • slimjim441 - January 1, 2013 4:21 p.m.

    I want to do a speed-run of Twilight Princess without any heart containers or a shield, but it's still going to be at least 15 hours... Maybe I'll just record a heartless/shieldless speed-run of the Cave of Ordeals.
  • tehtimeisnow - January 1, 2013 2:43 p.m.
