The earliest widely distributed speedruns were restricted to games that included an in-game timer, such as Dragster, Activision Grand Prix, Excitebike, Metroid II: Return of Samus, and Super Mario Kart.What is SpeedRunsLive and how does it work?
In 2009, SpeedRunsLive was created by Narcissa 'Cosmo' Wright and Daniel 'Jiano' Hart as a way for speedrunners to showcase speedrunning races in real time with a set goal consisting of various possible categories. Each game has a dedicated leaderboard that shows who is the top speedrunner for the game.Why do speedrun players record their attempts?
Players performing speedruns, called speedrunners, often record their attempts. These recordings are used to entertain others, to verify the completion time, to certify that all rules were followed, and to spot ways to further improve the completion time.What are the requirements for a 100% speedrun?
Specific requirements for a 100% speedrun are different depending on the game. Some games, such as Super Metroid, have a percentage counter and therefore have an easy definition for 100%. Others do not, and instead the game's community decides what the definition for 100% should be.
