Speedrunning for a Good Cause

Everyone knows I'm a huge gamer, but not everyone knows I'm a huge fan of speedruns. Don't know what that is? Well simply put, the objective is to finish a level or game as fast as possible. (click here for a more detailed explanation) I personally think it takes an insane amount of skill to do it. I mean all the memorization involved & executing everything properly, all to be the fastest person in the world to do so.

Anyway my favorite site to view speedsruns is Speed Demos Archive, they have a bunch of speedruns for a whole bunch of games. Wanna see a dude beat Pokemon in 2 hours? They have it!

Anyway the main reason I'm making this journal is they are streaming from May 24th - May 28th all for a good cause. So join the stream donate to the cause and enjoy some of the most skilled gamers in the world beat some of your favorite games in record time

That's why I love this community, they actually care about people, they don't just sit there on their high thrones laughing at everyone below them.

I love watching legit speedruns. However, I don't count it as a speedrun when someone uses TSA.

Simply awesome. I think my best speed run was when I went through Mass Effect the seventh time. It only took me 8 hours. *cry*

But seriously, that stream is going to be off the hizzy, yo.

Sorry I got street on you there.

Holy crap I just watched a few on YT. Doom 2 in 17 minutes? Half-Life 1 in 27 minutes? These guys are insane. These guys are the real skilled gamers, not the 10K/D fps players.
