Top Ten Best Games to Speedrun

The Top Ten

1 Super Mario 64

For all 120 stars or just to complete the game and/or just to complete the story, although I consider that I guess that all 120 stars could be just to complete the game as well! Yeah, I can't do this because of Mario Wing over the Rainbow and other hard levels that will probably stop me from getting all of the stars and/or reaching Bowser and /or reaching the final boss Bowser! - HeavyDonkeyKong

Great choice to speed run because it is THE MOST OVERRATED GAME EVER!

4 minute speed runs...I'm just saying'.
The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth ("Isaac") is a fairly hard game that for the average play often takes about 75 minutes to beat, and sometimes the pro players take that long. So speed runs of 10-20 minutes or less are pretty cool.
It's vague by "Best" refers to here, but I sincerely think Isaac is the best game to speed run in terms of 1. How quickly it can be speed run, 2. How enjoyable it is to speed run the game, and 3. It's the best in making it Possible to speed run it, in giving the player the tools to do a speed run.
Isaac is a fast-paced game, and when you go even faster, its usually because you're more powerful and have awesome weapons to kill all your enemies. The games power-ups are random and varied. So if you get lucky, then the game could give you the most powerful items, which is what allows players to win in 4 minutes.

Check the game out and/or ask me any questions or rebuttals you. - thunderwolfx17

16 Portal 2 Portal 2
