Most of the retro gaming videos you'll find on youtube are speedruns.

Edit: this is good if you haven't seen it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93KLGQatPmU.

It is a shame, I don't know of any other games that can be completed so quickly, especially as there are no shortcuts.

I only remember 3 of them - Pit Fighter, Barbarian and Ye-ar Kung-fu. Pah! Pathetic! (it has to be said some of those looked pretty crappy - so I don't think I missed a great deal :D )

That's how all C64 games looked.

Wow, only seen a few minutes but thats very good. I do love the old mono GB games, some of them eg this one really were huge games and very very good

Yes it truly is massive. It was so big that my copy of the game came with a printed out map of the overworld. This guy takes a few shortcuts as you will be able to see ;) .

It might seem like a long video but I've watched it over 3 times. My mouth hangs open at his ease with defeating the bosses.

I found these two sites pretty good for speed walkthroughs of games, especially the DOOM and Halflife videos, they're sickeningly good:

You have to bear in mind there's 3 types of speedrun.

1) Live.

2) Recorded and re-recorded but never containing anything you couldn't theoretically do live if you played a perfect game.

3) Complete fiction taking advantage of bugs.

All have their merits but you have to know which one you're watching.

Incidentally, I haven't looked at the bruce lee thing, but using method 2 you can complete Jurassic Park on the Mega drive in 2mins 45.
