I'm new and I only have 1 run but I want to speedrun a variety of games but i don't know what to start with, any beginner games that I could speedrun?

speedrun games you played to death.
generally its best to speedrun games you already know and enjoy.

(If you want, just a suggestion) start out with a game that has a more casual leader board. Some people I know have started with games with 250+ active players then get discouraged after looking at the leader boards. You also should (also) probably start running games that you've already completed/are familiar with. Really nice to have you on the site and hope you have a great time 🙂

It depends on the length of the speedrun, the kind of games you like... For example, I am a RPG enthusiast, but I wouldn't speedrun Final Fantasy games (probably) because generally they take too long to beat, even in a speedrun context.

I generally prefer games that have a medium length (around 1~2 hours) to permit me practicing it more often. Also, I get too tired if a run takes too much time to complete, so I generally avoid those.

If you can think about those questions, it will help you to decide what to speedrun faster.

 
  HiHi

This should be the thread for you.

You can speedrun whatever you want as a first speedrun. I've seen all kinds of first time runners from simple stuff like Little Mermaid NES to Super Castlevania IV on SNES. The only one telling you something is impossible is YOU.

So if YOU feel like you wanna start easy, you do that and there's no shame in it. I can recommend a handfull of easy learns that aren't objectively good games. Or you could just pick a game you enjoy and always wanted to learn how to speedrun it. There's really no universally right or wrong choice: As much as individual preferences.

What games do you play and enjoy? I enjoy Minecraft, so when I joined recently, I decided to speedrun a few categories and I set some fine records. I still speed run Minecraft, but my records are becoming more impressive. I am an above average player in minecraft, and I guess decent in PvP, and really good at void PvP, I am going to post a few videos on my YouTube channel which show me getting 8 kills in a 11 players skywars game (exluding my self. Unfortunately though, it is hard to beat the 5 kill world record for skywars, I may get a time for 2nd or 1st, but I need to grind like 100 speedruns to achieve such position. And I have been here only for 2 days. You can perform the same (I think).
