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!

2 Super Metroid

Every time I hear the word speedrun. I think of Super Metroid... Kill the Animals!

Good game, only metroid game on the list so that's where my vote goes to.

Pretty obvious to be honest. More routes through the game than you can count, and one of the games directly responsible for the rise of speedrunning.

3 Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
4 Sonic the Hedgehog 2

A real classic!

5 Kingdom Hearts
6 The Legend of Zelda: a Link to the Past

Will not get too boring no matter how many times you speed run it!

7 Chrono Trigger
8 Super Mario Bros.: The Lost Levels
9 The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time

I probably couldn't do this because of THAT WATER TEMPLE! - HeavyDonkeyKong

10 Portal

Incredibly entertaining to run

The Newcomers

? Secret of Mana

The Contenders

11 Dark Souls

Isn't this supposed to be one of the hardest Video Games eve rmade of all time ever made of all time ever made? - HeavyDonkeyKong

12 Mirrors Edge
13 Metal Gear Solid
14 The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth

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

15 Super Mario Sunshine
16 Doom

Shows the 2016 doom when its actually talking about the original doom

17 Paper Mario
18 Super Meat Boy
19 Super Mario World
20 Half-Life

If you got tired from portal, why not portal 2?

If you bhop in this game it is hard but it's totally worth it

22 Tomb Raider

Speedruns of the classic tomb raider games are so entertaining. I love watching all the tricky shortcut jumps and glitches. - jimicenafromintempo

23 Spider-Man

This game isn't even out yet that's how fast people beat it.

24 Banjo-Kazooie

A Mario Kart Wii speedrun is when you play four non-retro cups in a certain time. Considering the entire point of the game is racing it is really fun to speedrun.
