Let's Speed Decision Thread

We need to decide on a game and/or game-level for Let's Play and then facilitate it's distribution.

Help me, paragons of good taste in retro gaming.

Progress Quest. Wait--maybe not.

Cave Story is the archetypical free indie game of highest profile. Similarly I Wanna Be The Guy.

There was, what, a speed-run competition in years past for Super Mario Bros., right? Maybe SMB3 for the modern approach?

Or, for the really retro approach, Zork or Adventure.

All good ideas.

For IWBTG, we'd probably have to settle for "From x savepoint to y savepoint", preferably ending/with a boss in-between.

SMB3 is a great go-to choice. I'm in favor of that the most. Especially some sort of archaic world 7 or world 8 level with a limited power-up lay-out.

If you decide to do SMW over SMB3, I'll do this.

Actually, I might do SMB3 anyway so long as I can use the All Stars version, but I really really prefer SMW.

I'm touched, but you should probably go for less of a "killed by random shit" run.

Alien Soldier.

Nah, something like SMB3 that's intimately familiar to pretty much everybody would actually be ideal.  On the flipside, the Sonic games were actually designed to be dashed through as quick as possible.  Just sayin'.

SMB3 gets my vote. Make sure the first post in the official thread has detailed instructions for making and posting the run. For the slow kids (me).

Alternate solution: pick a popular emulatable RPG.  Everyone starts at the beginning at a certain time.  First one to finish wins, no frameskip, save states, new game+, or cheating.  Game clock doesn't matter, the contest is in real time.  Go by the honor system.

Probably Magic John is the best option here.
