I would like to know. Mines def shitty RNG if that counts.


Failing on mashing to get the first three frames for Quistis Card in FF8.


Literally any game where you have to grind as fast as possible just to get through a segment. Bullshit. I hate it. It doesn't feel like speedrunning if I have to mash through 30 fights as quick as possible just to progress. Iz bullsheet.


People that call it "Speed running"

People who get super tilted over losing one of their world records, I'm certain they never felt any remorse for doing the same thing to the previous wr holder.

1 of my pet peeves is being forced to sit through unskippable cutscenes, especially if they're long like the ones at start of SMS.

@KloogerKlooger it's funny that you mention that. Just 2 days ago someone took the WR from me on Ni Hao Kai-lan Super Game Day. And yesterday(not even a full 24 hours later) I took back the WR by over a minute. I actually felt bad about it because of how excited the man sounded when he got WR and he had it for less than 24 hours. But a few hours ago he commented "GG. Gonna keep practicing" on my speedrun so we're cool luckily lol

When people aren't super excited about having a new wr

It's just unsatisfying
