Because I am stupid. Nuff' Said.


Have any of you ever really tried speedrunning? Is it fun or do you hate it? I have been looking into it but I don't know if I should or not.

LunarDarkness2 : I'm glad I'm not the only stupid person here. Also on speedrunning I have never really done it myself (I have never been that dedicated to a game that I know the ins and outs of it besides sports games) but I do find speedrun videos to be entertaining.

Is it because you're like 12?

I like speed running. Well, depends on the game, but speed running is usually fun unless it's an rpg or something that relies on luck instead of skill.

I don't generally do hardcore speed running, although I do watch a lot of AGDQ videos.  I like to explore and find hidden secrets.  I like to mess around to see what I can do.  But I do like to complete levels as fast as I can, on occasion.  I hear that serious speedrunning takes some serious dedication, though.  You have to know the ins and outs of the game you attempt to speedrun.  You need to know the exploits and have to master the controls of the game.  Overall, I'd say that those with dedication will find a huge payoff in speedrunning.  As they see themselves improve, others will watch and enjoy watching those people play the games they play.  I may someday become a speedrunner for a specific game, but I love experiencing variety so much that it might be difficult to pull myself away.

Speed running is neat but I feel like the speed run loses out on the spirit of the game. It takes some crazy skills (and a bit of luck) to accomplish a quality speed run but quite often speed running exploits the game in ways that were never intended and can sometimes skip entire parts of the game itself.

I personally would rather explore a game for 60 hours in order to find every secret and what not than be able to play through an entire game in 37 minutes.

I've only tried it with one game: Alex Gordon. It's a silly looking little PC platformer, but it's an awesome game. Unfortunately I have no records to compare my times to, so I have to complete against myself. I win either way at least. P

And if it's a game you really love then yeah it can be pretty enjoyable. Otherwise not really. I also tried it with Xeodrifter and Broken Age for the trophies, but it was a huge pain and I haven't completed the challenge yet. But yeah Broken Age despite being a good game (Xeodrifter was too) proved that one should not speedrun a point and click game. Lol

Also could you edit the title or description one of the two so we can see what the thread is about before clicking? Thanks man. Unless you don't do it...in which case I will, and edit your opening post to include the words "I'm also a poppyhead".

Oh gawd yes, you are stupid beyond saving. :p

I hate speed running because I prefer to take my time and fully explore what a game has to offer and I wouldn't be able to have the time to sit through and play to the end in one sitting, no matter how short the game might be.

I forgot to include my opinion on speed-running. I enjoy watching others do it, but I would not like to do it myself. It takes too much time out of the game experience. I would rather play and enjoy the game at my own pace rather than speed through it. Unless it's a Sonic game, then it's alright.

First off, that's kind of the point of TdV. And being rude was unnecessary. And what's wrong with doing that in the first place? It is a forum, after all.

LunarDarkness2 :

I'm sorry. I never understood the point of tour de vizzed. I first thought the whole point of it was to have people get more active on the forum, but I always forget when it is on and instead of getting people to be more active on the forum, it just ends up with people spamming it with pointless crap they don't actually care about. So the noble idea has been lost a long time ago. And all of you speed runners don't really do anything that would actually contribute to the site.

If I came off as offensive, I only meant to do it mildly. If I came off more than that, then I am truly sorry. My apologies.

No offense guys, but you know what's getting kinda "stupid"?? THESE THREADS about why people are stupid.

Seriously, what purpose do they serve other than a spam fest? I don't mind like one or two of these threads in this forum, but they are getting kinda out of hand.

LunarDarkness2 : Well actually I kind of did complain about it in the second "stupid" thread when I said after that one we should dial it down (even though the second title was still kind of mildly entertaining). And I was working on a thread to announce it as you summoned me here, so... Yeah. Besides, if a Global or Admin comes in here asking us to dial it down, we should whether I'm cool with it or not...and again, I wasn't I just didn't make that as readily visible until a few minutes ago when I finished that thread addressing it. Been fighting posting that thing for a few days now, hoping things would settle down at my previous requests.

But hey, as long as we move forward from here, then this title is a non-issue, though changing it might draw more attention to the people you're seeking feedback from.

As for what's annoying, I'd say when the spam becomes redundant or when your posts make zero sense regularly, it's a little too far. That's for future reference.

I have done several speedruns in the past, and they are very time-consuming. Granted, I did them with tools, which makes it even MORE time consuming - Breath of Fire II took me over a year. Only do them (real time or otherwise) if you have a LOT of time on your hand.

Ok no objections lol. Eh yes I have, quite a bit in fact. Not very successful though.. I did for the Christmas Craze competition here a while back and well ended up uploading the wrong videos and erasing the good ones  I did play like that for Castle levels in Mario where there was a lot of lava balls and skeletons and I tried to survive so my logic felt speedrunning would help.. did sometimes.

Just so I can avoid repeating my story behind speedrunning.

Overall it's very fun and highly competitive. It's a big adrenaline rush when you're going after goals, especially if you do them live.
