I don't know how, but some people are great at video games! Like the guy who beat Halo 2 in four hours and the guy who beat Metroid in 20 minutes, I guess people have skillz!

I astound myself speed-running Metroid Zero Mission in 1:12 or beat NSMB in 30 minutes using warps.

And I'm not just talking about speeding through games, I'm talking about people who can impress us, like Wiebe!

So, does anybody on Nintendo Life have any skillz? (And I know someone on here does...)

I came to this site a while ago to meet people that played The Conduit, and I stayed because the community was pretty rad, according to thirteen-year-old me. Feel free to hit me up if you want to chat and/or play some vidya.

Sure, I beat the original Super Mario Bros. in a quick six hours.

Was it a speed run or all of the levels, including the secret ones?

Or are you being sarcastic?

I beat SMB in 7:28. The world record is around 5 minutes so I definitely have room for improvement. Also, I beat SMB3 in around 15:30.

He's being sarcastic. six hours is not quick. Some people can beat that game in 10 minutes

Oh you know me too well. lol

Truth is I rarely even finish games, much less master them in order to blow through in a crazy amount of time.

I sped run Kirby Canvas Curse in 1:39, minimalistic, with no health upgrades. And I did Kirby Squeak Squad in 1:34, 100%, so I had to get health upgrades.

I don't know, maybe those are mad Kirby skills, they may suck. All my friends aren't gamers.

I started a speed run on HL2, then halfway in gave up. Not one for speed-gaming me, but marvel at those who can. H-core!

Rawr!

One time I beat the whole story in castle crashers in about 30 minutes. Had to go quick with everything. Was only level 19 when I beat it. I had no help from online. I also beat eternal sonata in 18 hours 36 minutes including the mysterious unison.

My first time going through the mode, I beat the adventure mode of SSBB in 9 hours. Is that good for my first time?

To answer the question, people speed run by doing just about any trick they can, exploiting the heck out of glitches mostly. Often times in games like Majora's Mask, glitches are used to get to items quicker and the dungeons/places are usually done out of order (ex. part Woodfall, Snowhead, Pirate's Fortress, finish Woodfall, etc.).

I don't really do speed runs, but I like to try getting 100% of items/sub quests/etc. before the final boss. As well, I like to try out glitches (beat OoT Ganon with Deku Nuts and a swing from the Master Sword before he fell for the final button press : P). In all, I'm a perfectionist, not a speed runner. ^^

@MetalMario Awesome.

If you go to http://speeddemosarchive.com/forum/ then you can discuss with people if you need help to speedrun. (If that was what you were asking for)

I speedran Mega Man 9 a while ago, my time was: 00:30:06 (30 minutes and 6 seconds).
The world record is 19 minutes and some seconds.

I speed run Sonic games like crazy. I used to hold many World Records in Sonic Riders.

I ran through Luigi's Mansion in 2 hrs 56 mins, I'm not sure if that is good or not.
