Been itching to get into a new speed game for a while now but I'm not sure where to start. Part of my problem is I've learned that I prefer doing runs where, at least starting out, I don't necessarily have to do a lot of individual practice. I prefer when I'm able to just finish my casual playthrough of the game, and then just keep on playing and getting better and better. I played a lot of Wind Waker Randomizer that felt like that for the most part, and I also enjoyed doing this with Celeste ILs (running the full game ended up feeling too stressful for me lol). Whereas when I've tried to play games like Megaman, I feel like I have to keep grinding to get each room perfectly because I usually die when I mess up (as opposed to say Celeste, where deaths aren't very punishing), and then I just end up getting tilted very quickly whenever I try to do full runs.
So yeah, if anyone has any recommendations for stuff like this I'd love to hear some ideas. Other randomizers could be cool, although I'm not sure what other kinds of games have randomizers and I'm not super interested in other Zelda games, Metroid, Castlevania, or Pokemon. Also I tend to like a lot of different kinds of games, but especially platformers.
