It is as easy as Komrade said. However, if you need some more guidance, Celeste, Refunct, Portal 1 & 2 are great games to speedrun

it is almost like there needs to be a sticky for this question in particular. Every couple days it gets asked at least once.

On the mobile speedrunning discord we have a channel where anyone can drop a post with their preferences to ask for suggestions, in particular (a) Platform(s) (b) Run duration (c) Genre(s) (d) Pay stance (e) Other criteria. A sticky on these forums (fora?) for suggestion requests spelling out what leads people need to give would work pretty well imo.

Speedrunning is only fun if you have put at least like 10 hours into it, u just have to force yourself to get started

I don't know about that, I enjoyed speedrunning from the moment I started, but generally speaking yeah the more you put into it the more you'll get out of it.

Speedrun your fav game. You must enjoy hours and hours in it. But i can recommend Celeste 🙂


It's really about speed-running a game you like, not a random game.

I did a lots of run for different games, but i can only say i really had fun in 5-10 game out of the 47 i ran.
