Top Ten Best Video Games to Speedrun

The Top Ten

Super Mario 64 Super Mario 64 Product Image

Tons of different categories that work differently but all require amazing movement, making for an entertaining playing and viewing experience.

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!

Best game ever

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

Super Metroid Super Metroid Product Image

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.

MUCH better than Zelda in my opinion

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.

The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth The Binding of Isaac: Rebirth Product Image

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.

Super Mario World

Oh, those glorious golden days.
