I’ve been watching Summer Games Done Quick all week, and although there have been a whole lot of great moments — Zelda: Oracle of Seasons was awesome! — my favourite runs so far are the Mega Mans.
Between the crazy strategies and the tight little tricks that help these guys shave a few seconds off their final times, all of these speedruns are super-fun to watch. And each of these folks knows every second of the games, which is incredible to witness.
