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 Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island
3 The Legend of Zelda: a Link to the Past

Anyway one of the best to speedrun

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

4 Super Metroid

It is interesting to see speedruns based on games with different paths and heavily based on backtracking

The reason Super Metroid is the best is because there are so many options for speedrunning, and new methods are STILL being discovered with the latest method being the "moonfall" glitch/trick discovered 23 years after the game's release. A rich speedrunning community makes this the best game by far.

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.

The only true speed “running” game.

13 Super Mario Odyssey

The BEST cause of the moveset and choices you have.

14 Metal Gear Solid
15 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
