      Speedrunning is just the overtly visible act of someone mastering something. Everyone who has ever improved at something has ground out repetitions like this, you just don’t see it. The drama and shit is the product of the community, not the hobby itself.

          I’m gonna let you in on a secret bud. There is almost nothing in this world "worth" mastering to the degrees some people are willing to go to.

          >The drama and shit is the product of the community, not the hobby itself.
          The hobby attracts the community and is therefore just as at fault if not more.

          Name one hobby that doesn’t have autists in it that ruin it to some degree.

            the whole point of the video OP references is how terrible doing this makes you feel inside, doing the same garbage over and over, for some tiny audience, for no personal gain, for some minuscule amount of brain goo to make you "feel good" for no longer than an hour of a single day, then everyone including yourself forgets how good that high was shortly afterward, not a single stranger you’d want to tell would care a single fuck at all about what you did, it tears you apart inside knowing you did nothing accomplishing at all, your parents look away shunning while still trying to hold some facade that they ‘love you’, and all you can do at that point is wallow in regret of having wasted your precious youthful time of your life; your one single chance at walking this earth, on a piece of entertainment meant for children in your adult years, when normal-thinking people are having relationships and children. this is why this "community" is plagued by deranged tranny psychopathic depressed drug-addicted clowns and is an absolute shit-show clown world of freaks beckoning to be laughed at and edged by a nudge into suicide. this situation is so bad it’s not worth pitying or your disgust, it’s rather more annoying and exhausting trying to hide your disgust while having to witness such pathetic people and behavior who seriously call this pointless bullshit a "career."

            You mean like making music? Or movies? What does those add to the world other than spectacle for the mind and emotions?

            there is nothing spectacular or moving about (((playing a video game))). you are simple-minded, low IQ and easily-amused by toys at an adult age; quite possibly brain-damaged and mentally ill for thinking so plebeian at that. i specifically come here to prod at the likes of you and it works so easily.

            F for every (you) this post gets except the f stands for "forgotten"
            reminder that your hopeless plant on humanity will never ever impact the future, yourselves, others or anything at all, it will just cease to exist within you along with you. goodbye.

              speedrunning is just classical piano for poor people. There’s no actual money to be made in it since such a small minority of people give a shit about it, some random person isn’t going to appreciate a piece you’ve worked on for months beyond "wow that sounds hard" since they’d rather hear you punch out a babytier pop song, the competition scene is just a bunch of autists grinding out the same fucking songs for dogshit prizes compared to time spent mastering. I honestly wouldn’t be surprised if your chances of making a living from speedrun streaming were similar to a concert pianist. at least speedrunners choose it instead of having it forced on them.

                    Even if he is "ironically" acting like a retard, he is still doing it. Like "ironically" pooping your pants or "ironically" sucking cocks.

                    Saddest part is that he soon can’t tell if he is actually retarded or not.

            documentary films illuminate the world, opening up people to new ideas and arguments. even truths. PBS front-line has recently been dropping their documentaries on their you tube.

            They cover the topics
            – Iraq War
            -2008 Financial crisis
            -Retirement systems in U.S.A
            -PTSD in war veterans
            -incarceration in America

            Are those not topics that if the public are educated on, are important and useful?

                there’s certainly a lot more artistic beauty that comes from those films. One thing that sticks in my mind recently is how the human spirit is expressed (or not expressed) in our hobbies. Films contain so much human beauty and artistry. Then when you compare it the the robot like precision that comes with speed-running it almost feels anti human. The only human element is persistence, but apart from that you are turning a human brain into a computer tapping buttons like a mouse in a Skinner’s box.

      Speedrunning is taking a game a dev poured their heart and soul into, breaking it over your knee, then fucking the remnants said dev didn’t even know about without lubrication.

        I like watching the speedruns that keep the game intact. I get WHY some people enjoy watching the glitch ones but to me they’re so boring. I find more enjoyment watching the game itself be completed in the most skilled manner.

        For example the Zelda speedruns are basically all just the players redoing the same moves over and over until a hidden bit switches and gives them the ending. It’s tedious and makes for an awful viewing experience. I don’t know why they’re allowed at the stream events.

          based, same shit with that SMW arbitrary code execution which triggers the ending, what even is the point? I also generally don’t like glitches or huge chunks of a game being skipped, almost feels like a copout more than anything else

          a run which I enjoyed quite a bit recently was TGH 202 berries run in celeste, which essentially means doing ALL stages in the game without dying, it showed true mastery of the ENTIRE game instead of some retarded "any%" shit that skips 95% of it

      I used to think speedrunning was entirely stupid, but I’ve come around to thinking it could be fun as long as you can beat the game in less than 2 hours or so. That’s pushing it, but anything past that is mental illness.

      The gyst of it is gaming and speedrunning is fun but you should NEVER let yourself be tricked into thinking you’re accomplishing anything real. Not just speedrunning but any form of gaming or entertainment.
      I literally don’t care how many hours of your life you waste playing games as long as you are self aware and remember that shit.

      retards on this board couldnt imagine actually playing a game let alone more than once. the people who piss their pants about speedrunning are the same people who cry about fighting games taking to long to learn because they cant just pick it up and win ie low attention span idiots. its pure autism, even more than speedrunning.

        Speed running is not playing a game it’s mindlessly mashing every possible combination of buttons at every possible location until you find some glitch that lets you skip half the game.
