    I just finished watching <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ymeKa9NdOq4" target="_blank">this vid</a> of someone 100% completing S3&K (As Knuckles) in about 3 quarters of an hour, and even though it's tool assisted it's one of the better ones I've seen. I have to say I was mesmerised especially when they started doing the special stages backwards haha.

    So I was wondering, has anyone here tried speedrunning any of the Sonic games, or does anyone still actively speedrun? Which games have you ran through and what are your best times?

    Those who can't/haven't (Like me), do you have any favourite speedrun vids?

    I've never tried speedrunning a whole game before. Man, the thought of that is really intimidating.

    I have tried my hand at speedrunning certain individual stages from SU360 though, my best runthroughs definitely being from <a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NkA_B-D91OQ" target="_blank">Eggmanland</a>.

    Also, I've done a few runs of some SRB2 levels as well as the first stage of Sonic Rush Adventure, but that's it. Don't think I'll ever try any stages from any other games though- people have ripped those things so far apart it's crazy.

    I saw a TAS with someone completing S3K with Sonic & Tails and no emeralds in about a half hour. That was crazy. :psyduck:

    I used to be able to complete all of Emerald Coast while holding my breath. :/ Not sure what gave me that idea.

    Sometimes I hold my breath while "underwater" when I'm in stages like Labyrinth and such, if it makes you feel better.

    Good find. That Sonic 1 speedrun is immense, can't believe they managed to get through Labyrinth 3 in 1min 7.. with no rings =/

    Oh god, I guess I'm not the only one. I hold my breath between bubbles, to feel what Sonic feels (take that, Rumble Pak!) Unfortunately this practise has led me to only be able to hold my breath for 30 seconds, so I'll probably drown if I'm ever in an emergency situation involving water.

    I used to speedrun Green Hill and Emerald Hill on the original console, but never any of the later levels (I'm too lazy). I did get Azure Lake below 19 seconds once, though, I remember trying for hours. And of course, Adventure practically requires you to spam the spindash button to get all the emblems.

    I would love to see a speed run with sonic collecting all the Emeralds (as in the op). All the speed runs I ever see tend to avoid special stages but hyper sonics double jump could make things interesting.

    No, that was done already in the video in the 1st post and isn't interesting as the one that skips emeralds.
    Tails shenanigans > Hyper Sonic shenanigans :v:
    Of course, you could do a TAS for something like what GoldS is doing without tools for massive amount of entertainment, <a href="http://tasvideos.org/1785S.html" target="_blank">like this mad SMB3 TAS.</a>

    No, that was done already in the video in the 1st post and isn't interesting as the one that skips emeralds.<!--QuoteEnd--></div><!--QuoteEEnd-->The speedrun in the first post collects all the emeralds, but with Knuckles, not with Sonic. There *is* a TAS with Sonic collecting all the emeralds in the queue right now, but consensous if it should be published or not isn't reached so far: <a href="http://tasvideos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8602" target="_blank">http://tasvideos.org/forum/viewtopic.php?t=8602</a>.

    However, the "someone" Moonshadow Caz mentioned in his first post is nothing else but Upthorn, who <strike>is</strike> was also active on this same forum, and is probably the best Sonic speedrunner of all times, along with Nitsuja.

    When idiots started saying Sonic games (even the classics) are literally a hold right to win, I made some sort of personal goal to pass through the main games by pressing right non-stop and jumping when I needed to. It's very hard to do so, and it's impossible as the second zone kicks in. Only tried with Sonic 1 and 2 but I'm sure it's the same for any of the others. I'll try the adventures one of these days.

    I can speedrun Emerald Hill Zone Act 1, but not much else to be honest. Maybe Chemical Plant Zone...

    I just tried this in S3&K. You can't even get to AIZ's act 2 boss.
