I thought this recent episode of Game/Show was well worth sharing as it covers an arena of gaming I mostly just watch with awe. A good speedrun is pretty magical and it's been a joy to see how quickly people can complete games like Ocarina of Time, which seems to be the current speedrun gold standard.

"Speedrunning! The competitive genre of choice recently that’s popping up on Reddit, Twitch, Youtube, and basically anywhere you can watch video. Recently popularized by people like Cosmo through his run of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time, speedrunning is becoming the next big thing (and possible foil) to most games’ competitive scenes. Instead of doing your best to play by the rules, you break them! You try and beat the game as fast as you can in an exhibition of wit, reflex, and raw talent."
