Here’s a compilation video of someone beating ALL 16 bosses from Mega Man 4… without taking any damage!
Here’s a great video montage showing ways to get (nearly) infinite lives in most of the mainline Super Mario games.
While the turtle hopping trick in the original Super Mario Bros. is something we’ve all seen and tried, I’ve never seen the trick from Super Mario 64.
Check ’em out…
Believe it or not, if you know what you’re doing, you can actually make it to the Willamette Valley in just 5 minutes and 23 seconds.
To think of all the time I wasted killing buffalo instead of getting to the end of the Oregon Trail…
(Note: The run doesn’t start until about 15 mins into the video but before that some useful strategy is discussed.)
Despite its simple premise of delivering newspapers, Paperboy is a pretty tough game (or at least it was for me).
Check out this guy not only pulling off a 100% delivery rate but also doing so in record time!
This is a pretty neat 11 min 8 sec speedrun of Double Dragon II: The Revenge.
Watch this guy beat all the bosses in Super Mario Land without taking damage!
The third boss battle with the boulders is my favorite.
Here’s a really cool live speedrun of Disney’s Aladdin for the Sega Genesis (one of the prettiest platformers ever, IMHO) with running commentary that reveals some nice tricks for running faster, jumping further, and even skipping the magic carpet ride level!
Here’s an amusing and (thankfully) brief speedrun through one of the most broken and terrible platformers of all time: Super Pitfall for the NES.
Watch this guy set the world record for beating Marble Madness on the NES in 2 mins 47 secs!
Watch this guy beat GI Joe: The Atlantis Factor in 9 minutes 50 seconds!
