I popped in and out over the week to watch a few games that I like.
I figured out that I really like seeing the basics of every speed run. It's fun to listen to them talk about how they break the game and which mechanics they abuse. But after that I would only watch the full run if it was a really cool gimmick, a game I love, or a game that took under 30 minutes.
One of my favorite runs from then was the original Legend of Zelda no sword run. That was really cool. I also loved watching the Mega Man X4 run with only the buster gun.
I don't watch a lot of twitch, but apparently a good speed run can suck me in and keep me entertained.
Below I've embbedded my favorite speed run of the event for you.
