:D

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 )
Hey, Sweden!
They're not Swedish Mac, they're Norwegian!

That's how all C64 games looked.

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.
