007 NightfireLo1ts, Veman30001:15:00Game has a bunch of clips and skips etc. Here's my PB VoD https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lq20YHD8SA0&feature=youtu.be

.

A Bug's LifeJumpyluff0:35:00This is a very fast-paced game with many skips, tricks, and even a couple glitches. Because there is no way to skip any of the 15 levels, the goal of this run is to beat each level as quickly as possible. PB/WR is 23:40.

.

Aban Hawkins & the 1000 SPIKESJoshMelnick0:40:00A very difficult 2D platformer. Aside from a brief break between each of the 4 worlds, the entire run is really precise and exciting. Each level is extremely well designed and provides interesting new things for the viewers to pay attention to.

.

Abe's OddyseeRoboSparkle0:45:00Abe is yet to make an appearance at a marathon because until now he was learning how to turn himself and Elum invisible (partially blind run HYPE), run through mines, skip Paramonia and climb through floors. The other 98 mudokons are probably fine….

.

Alex Kidd in Miracle World (SMS)btrim0:20:00Perhaps the best known game on Master System. It's challenging with fast platforming. Pause required and is on console, and there's a glitch to skip a late boss. Should be popular with South America and Europe.

.

Amnesia (Justine) - possible incentive for Amnesia 2Weables, ShadowDraft0:10:00(by Weables) Short and sweet and constantly out of bounds. The run itself could be an incentive for another Amnesia. There are 3 NPCs you can go slightly out of your way to "rescue". Potential incentive to save them.

.

Angry Video Game AdventuresKryptoid980:35:00AVGN is a fast paced high skill megaman/boshy type game. There are a couple skips that saves minutes, and the fact that it's AVGN may attract his viewers as well. I currently have the WR of 23:27 in this category :)

.

Animal Crossing (all debts)Bosby, Woobly1:00:00A game no one expects to be speedrun, this category pays off all the debts on the character's house by abusing an item dupe glitch. Town layouts are random which means the first half of the run is a ton of adaption on the fly and memorization.

.

AntichamberChocoPoptart, Jovinee, Phxntxm0:10:00Antichamber is a 3D non-linear puzzle game that's know by many as brain shattering. This run is really short, being less than 3 minutes, so it won't take up much time. I was originally planned to run this at AGDQ 14, but was unable attend.

.

Ape EscapeChamploo1:05:00This game is bananas. Nothing extremely difficult and interesting glitches, not a very punishing game and it looks great to go fast. If a better player than I (pb is 55:07 with my slow disc) wants to run I can improve and keep it close.

.

Army Men: Air CombatKubelwagon0:45:00A quirky N64 title from the makers of Sarge's Heroes (except this one is actually decent.) Features fire-breathing ants and a giant walking teddy bear that shoots lasers from its eyes (That isn't a joke.)

.

Athletic WorldDeuceler0:15:00This is the only literal speed RUN probably ever done. Using the NES Power Pad I will go through a series of 4 challenges that include hurdles, hopping on one leg, running in a cave and cruising a raft dodging rocks.

.

Banjo Kazooie (any% RBA)stivitybobo1:45:00This PAL only category utilizes the ability to traverse almost anywhere in the game as a bee. Half the run is completed in a mind-blowing manner that not many people have witnessed before, so it creates a much faster and more interesting any% run.

.

Batman: The Video Game (Gameboy)lurk0:20:00Batgun, because it's Batman with a gun. Run involves jumping off the edge of pixels to make jumps, quick-killing bosses by getting inside it's hitbox where you can deal damage but receive none. (My PB: http://www.twitch.tv/lurkchan/c/3302834)

.

Battle ClashSCXCR0:20:00The Super Scope predecessor to Metal Combat. This run is a semi-on-rail shooting gallery of giant robots, most of which don't like standing still.

.

Bioshock InfiniteFearfulFerret2:30:00This run is the most asked-for run that I've ever done. It has many death warps and skips. The run is similar to the original Bioshock, which had a good run at this past AGDQ.

.

Braidcwolf200:35:00I'm #1 in North America at the game, and I can consistently get RTA times 10 minutes better than the previous Braid GDQ runners. Donation incentive for alternate ending.

.

Breath of Fire: Dragon QuarterDavidK51:30:00Run shows off many neat strats that make this JRPG look easy, despite being notoriously difficult in casual play. Highly optimized in-battle and out-of-battle (PETS) tactics are showcased. No cutscenes. Would be the first BoF game in a GQD.

.

Call of DutyKubelwagon2:00:00The original and only CoD. Although the new games are the ones everyone loves to hate, the originals are PC classics. There have been a number of OOB tricks discovered as well. I've been running this game since '05 and discovered most of the tricks.

.

Chiki Chiki BoysNiL8r0:35:00This is a great platformer with bright and colorful graphics and great music. There are a lot of wacky enemies and funny moments in this game. If there is a WTFJapan section this game would be great for that.

.

Contrastogam0:20:00http://www.twitch.tv/mrogam/c/3421142
This game a 2D/3D platformer, there are OOBs and sequence breaks through death warps from start to finish along with an unintended double jump by abusing a bug. Devs are interested doing some commentary.

.

Croc: Legend of the GobbosChrno, djm8581:00:00The only PS1 platformer in my opinion that has not been in a marathon, and it totally should. It has some really cool glitches (such as hovering across the map) and a big cult audience that I know would love to see a marathon run. Can be ran on PC.

.

Dark Messiah of Might and Magicyoutl1:00:00a very underrated game from 2006 it's basically medieval half life 2 with a bunch of sequence breaking, clipping through walls, and movement tricks that rival traditional bunny hopping!

.

DarksidersAftermath1:40:00It's a super broken run of a zelda-like game. It might be good if there's a block of games with really major breaks and skips, since it really is one of the most broken games out there. It's fast-paced and I think fared well in AGDQ 2013.

.

Deus Ex: Human Revolution (Director's Cut)PlagueFather2:00:00This run uses out of bounds glitches in almost every level to skip large portions, or even entire levels all together. You use invisibility (which has to be executed precisely) to skip lots of combot and even dialogue.

.

Dishonored (All Collectibles)DecidedSloth1:05:00Dishonored's verison of 100%. Sees alot more of the games great eviroments and has a crazy amount of wonky OOB's, many times more than any other category. A newer category and a fan favourite.

.

Donkey Kong Country 2Twig0:55:00Well established and loved speedrun. Same category with no new developments, but the run is solid enough I think it's almost always worth the time slot.

Pros - Epic speedgame

Cons - Done at every *GDQ except SGDQ 2013, I'm not Reflected

.

Double Dragon AdvanceMurphagator0:30:00A culmination of all the great things about the classic brawler series. The AI is manipulated to do some pretty comical things, and the game advances quickly.

.

DriarIceplug0:15:00Homebrew platformer for NES that's almost 2 years old. Collect all stars to win the level. There are 38 levels. Downtime doesn't exceed 2 seconds at the most.

.

Dynamite Headdyion0:50:00Headdy has been in SGDQ before, but I feel like it didn't get a proper showing. The run is now both faster and safer. It's a colorful game with comedic character design and movie puns for level names.

.

Dynasty Warriors 5Deshy0:25:00Dynasty Warriors Any% is a movement intense run with very chaotic feel. The run itself is very nostalgic for anyone who has ever played DW5. Incentive for 4 runs (One from each faction)The game is 18 minutes w/o incentives and up to 50 with.)

.

Earthbound (Glitchless)andyperfect5:10:00It will have been a year and a half over a year since Earthbound was done at a GDQ. The glitchless route and strats have exploded in the past year and the record has dropped by nearly an hour. Always a solid title to have in the lineup.

.

Earthworm Jim 2Zyre0:50:00Last played by me at SGDQ ’12 as part of a bidding war. This would go great with Earthworm Jim as it could be a nice little block in the marathon. A harder difficulty could be played, just adds more

.

EDGECyberdemon5310:50:00EDGE is an indie platformer that is 100% execution based. It has a LOT of awesome tricks and skips as well. Very fast and hard game.

.

Electronic Super JoyShadowDraft, Mundungu0:45:00A great platformer with a very fitting soundtrack. It's very much like Super Meat Boy but with a few added mechanics. Also RNG manipulation on two bossfights.

.

Elevator Action Returnszex0:25:00Run-n-gun action game. Non-stop action, lots of explosions, the music is really something else.

.

Eryi's ActionBlackCatGaming0:25:00Currently the WR holder for this cute little trapformer, it's a fluid and simple game to follow given some basic explanation and the entire run is all about movement optimization and having a strong flow of movement.

.

Eternal Daughter (100%)Azurinel1:00:00100% = collect all items. Glitches for fast movement, fast+powerful attacks, and major OoB skips make the game the perfect speedrun. "IWBTG" of Metroidvania. At least one dev (Jon Perry) willing to skype, might get Derek Yu too. Great in game music.

.

F-Zero GX (Beat all staff ghosts, all cups)Naegleria1:30:00All Cups since story mode can't be topped from AGDQ. I prefer beat all staff ghosts.

All Staff ghosts, Pros: Lets me show off all the IL strats and do crazy shit. Cons: Literally nothing.

.

Fallout: New VegasBronzeLeaguer, TenseSummer, PlagueFather0:45:00The run is very standard a lot of running there are a few trick jumps and speech skips. Its a any% you can skip most of the main story line quests. Only down side is the game tends to crash sometimes. [reviewer's note: could easily be cut if crashing issue is not fixed]

.

Fantasy Zonepeaches_0:15:00Bite sized, colorful 2d shooter on the NES with awesome music. The route has airtight gold/life management and lots of excellent boss cheese. PB here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A0-SJnVrxNQ A++ music here http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=plUjX2hsl1U

.

FEZ (any% clockless)DecidedSloth, JoshMelnick0:45:00A fun, interesting 2.5D platformer. This is the main category ran due to any% involving editing your system clock mid run.

.

Final Fantasy VI (any%)Essentia5:30:00Any% hasn't been done at a *GDQ since CGDQ, and the route has changed quite a bit since then. Possible bidding war between English and Japanese versions (JP is half an hour faster) but that might cause problems for naming incentives. [reviewer's note: the JP version doesn't allow English characters in names as far as we can tell, so this will have to be played on the U.S. version.]

.

Final Fantasy VII (no slots)puwexil9:00:00I prefer FF7 PSX as it's easier for me to practice (via emulation) & stream/record, and some of the minigames and random battle manips are easier on PSX; but I'd be willing to learn PC version for SGDQ since the loading times are ~1 hr shorter.

.

Fire Emblem: Radiant DawnGwimpage3:30:00RD is a safe and faster paced FE run with BEXP, Battle saves and optional stat boosters to help prevent bad RNG outcomes.The game is fairly execution based with cursor movement and menu optimization. http://www.twitch.tv/gwimpage/c/3502925

.

FluidityMaturedSinner2:00:00Fluidity is a motion controlled platformer for WiiWare that centers around using the forms of water to navigate. Any% collects the minimum 55 Rainbow Drops to open the final area and roll credits. Previously ran at AGDQ '12 Bonus Stream.

.

Forbidden Forestdanacrysalis0:10:00Action archery game from 1983, it has had good reception in online marathons, is short, and would make a good addition if multiple C64 games are accepted for a block.

.

Fortified Zonecutefluffybunny0:20:00This is a GB game with good music, clipping through walls, and boss quick kills. Pausing/unpausing gives you the same I-frames as taking damage, allowing you to pass through enemies/projectiles, and stand inside bosses/minibosses and mash.


.

Frogger: He's Back!SSBMstuff0:50:00Frogger:HB for PS1/SNES/PC (1997) was a childhood staple, selling over 1m copies. Fast-paced and exciting, any% enters level groups called zones while saving Gold Frogs (GF) to unlock new zones. Donation incen 4 AllGFs% (5/8 for any%) else 25min ETA.

.

Gex 3: Deep Cover GeckoZandergoth1:25:00Platformer with lots of glitches. Hasnt been in a marathon (i think) and i got a lot of tricks/glitches for this run to show off. As one of the only runners for the game i've came up with tons of stuff that would cut more then 2 mins of the TAS.

.

Gex 64AlbinoAlbatross1:30:00Has probably the best voice acting and one liners ever. It's a 3d platformer where you do a lot of long jumps to quickly get across levels and has plenty of neat tricks. Voices on would be a donation incentive because we turn it off.

.

Gish (good ending)Yeti0:15:00Gish would make a great donation incentive for a platformer block or similar. The game has fun OoB, telekinesis, bizarre movement mechanics, and a cool art style. Current WR here: http://bit.ly/LBqogQ

.

God Hand (easy)ZanasoBayncuh1:40:00Pushes much more for route optimization and YOLO strats than at higher difficulties. It's GOD HAND!

.

Goldeneye (100%, Hard)l34ss l3oost1:20:00This is the same run as agdq 2013 which includes every level and unlocking all the cheat codes (cheat codes unlocked by beating each levels target time) 33 levels total

.

Grand Theft Auto 1feasel1:15:00Game looks amazing when done fast. A true "Any%" would be to use the infinite-money glitch and just skip the whole game, however I'll actually be doing the missions. Donation incentive: I'll show how to infinitely explode a car and get rich.

.

Halo: Combat Evolved (Easy)LePhoque1:45:00Halo 2's reception at AGDQ 2014 proves that there’s a massive audience for the series and Halo 1 showcases a nice mix of entertaining tricks and FPS fighting. Halo 1 easy is more entertaining, more optimized, and faster paced than Halo 1 legendary.

.

Hard ResetDencity1:10:00FPS with no movement tricks for speed, instead fights and ammo usage is optimized so not much time is taken per fight. At least 1 major skip per level, most abusing how the game handles jumping. Few slow areas.PB is 42:05, ~20m added for tech issues.

.

Hello Kitty: Roller RescueZerothehiden, Yoshipro101, Emptyeye0:45:00Hello Kitty at it's best. Short and sweet with many small techniques. Abusing the ai's physics and manipulating enemies to fly by everything! Potential race

.

Jak IINitrofski, rubiksrocks1231:45:00This game is a mission based game, very different from its predecessor. In this run, you use a variety of tools to speed your way through the missions and the city. Any% skips 60% of the game. All Missions estimate would be 3:15:00

.

Jet Set Radio HD (any% or 100%)aneeslol, Womps1:30:00Cult classic with awesome music and fast-paced gameplay. 100% involves unlocking all of the characters(which also means getting max rank on every level), and collecting all of the graffiti soul collectibles. [reviewer's note: any% is about a half hour shorter]

.

Jumpmandanacrysalis0:20:00Very technical and unique platformer on the C64, each level has a different gimmick to make the collection of bombs in the stage interesting. Played on second to highest speed setting.

.

KairoBloodThunder0:30:00This game is fast and features puzzles that aren't hardly to follow along with for those who haven't played it. The developer for Kairo mentioned he would provide commentary.
(100% secret ending http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qX94ocFCrNE)

.

Kanye Quest 3030Laz0:20:00This game just like Barkley is an incredibly silly RPGmaker game that focuses on the journey to save the world from the fake BasedGod as you play as Kanye West. Another RPG that is incredibly short, and not as dangerous in terms of RNG.

.

Kid Chameleon (4 boss)Iateyourpie, peaches_0:40:00Classic Sega Game that many people had trouble beating as a kid. Hasn't been run at a GDQ since AGDQ13. Different power upgrades allow for different movement tricks. Possible race w/ Peaches

.

Kid DraculaGuhbadoo0:30:00One of the few Castlevania games that hasn't been at a GDQ before. It has some unique boss battles to say the least.

.

Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Vs. Kingdom Hearts 2FM Bid War (also Proud/Critical mode incentive)spikevegeta4:30:00This is from the entire Kingdom Hearts Community, we are wanting to run these as a group.

HUGE potential bid war between the two most beloved games in the series. Fanbase is absolutely split on which game is better. 1-3 runners per game.

.

Kingdom Hearts 2Muffinqt4:30:00My PB/WR is 4:05:26. Really solid and flashy action RPG where almost every tool given to the player is used. This isn’t an RPG where you just abuse one technique for the entire game. [reviewer's note: obviously this will be considered alongside the previous KH submission]

.

Kirby 64: The Crystal Shards (100%)Kefka14, Bbforky, firedragon7641:30:00No major skips. It's a very chill run with some interesting routing regarding getting all of the shards. It's also Kirby, so hype is inevitable. My PB is 1:18:27.

.

Kirby: Nightmare in Dream Land (any% or 100%)Mapler, TuxedoMob, Halodude0:55:00Not sure how to submit two categories, and I think 100% could be a donation incentive (adds ~5 minutes). At a high level this run is rather technical, even moreso than Metaknightmare. Kirby deserves to have a serious run in this game.

.

Kirby's Dream Land 3 (co-op 100%)ion, Mr. Cuatro1:40:00Co-op with Cuatro. 5 worlds with 6 levels each. True ending shows off a lot of the game, goals in each level requiring certain animal powers. Co-op makes the run quicker, plus it allows for goofing around when one player is doing something boring.

.

Left 4 Dead 2 (4 player co-op)Lo1ts, Kn4Life, Womps, TrUShade2:00:004 player co-op with Kn4Life, Womps and TrUShade. Original campaigns in the game, estimate 2 hours. Mostly just movement optimization and not dying.

.

Legend of ManaOmnigamer, 2bitmarksman, PX_2:30:00(by Omnigamer) Beloved Mana-series game with several unique gameplay mechanics. Offering JP version for faster, more consistent runs. Dragon Arc can be done in sub-2, or Fairy Arc as a donation incentive can be done in less than 2:30.

.

Little Nemo: The Dream MasterJugajoga0:35:00A unique NES platformer that was ran at AGDQ 2014. I run the English version (I don’t own the Japanese cart) which is ~1:30 minutes slower due to text but we can read the fantastic cutscenes. The only difference other than text is a boss pattern.

.

Lufia II: Rise of the SinistralsDragondarch4:45:00Cult popular RPG with quick movement and battles. SS WR is 3:53:41 RTA by Happysquid89. I'll be trying a full RNG manipulation route, but if that proves marathon unsafe (too reset heavy) I'll only bother with it up to the 1st boss (drop needed).

.

MadagascarYoshipro1011:10:00Highly technical game, few skips in certain areas. Donation incentive to play some of the sweg minigames (with someone else of course)

.

Magrunner: Dark PulseRileyOfAdelphia1:45:00Magrunner is like Portal, but with magnets, and C'thulu. It was a bonus stream game at AGDQ, and I think a lot of people would watch it. It's got some pretty neat speed-tech too, lots of skips that the developers did not intend.

.

Marathon InfinityBlueglass0:40:00The Marathon trilogy makes for good speedrunning, and Infinity is the easiest due to length. It's a fast-paced FPS. Easiest difficulty for consistency; if practice goes well, possibility of raising difficulty as donation incentive. [reviewer's note: We really need to see some footage of this game from you to consider it for the final cut, especially since you have no history with FPS. The game itself has a nice cult following and could be considered, though.]

.

Mario & Luigi: Superstar SagaNewAgeRetroHippie4:30:00M&L is another strong Mario RPG. Battles are great fun and reading out Fawful/Peasley's nonsense dialogue would be a fun incentive. Japanese glitched is over an hour faster, but I don't want to offer that unless I'm sure it can be done consistently.

.

Mass Effectyour name here2:00:00glitchy rpg/shooter with large skips. The new game route has gotten a lot more refined since last year. Combat and leveling strats are totally new. Many different opportunities for donation incentives.

.

Mega Man 4hagspam0:45:00It hasn't been in a Marathon in over a year, it's one of the best Mega Man games out there, and my personal favorite

.

Mega Man II (Gameboy)GameJ06, JaggerG0:25:00This would be maybe a first for the Gameboy Megaman series.... My time about 56 seconds off the WR and 2nd best in the world currently. Hopefully, i can shave this down to WR time by the time SGDQ rolls around http://www.twitch.tv/gamej06/c/3620774

.

Mega Man X3 (glitched low%)Crak Atak0:40:00The ballbreaker of Megaman X3 categories. The run consists of doing intro stage and using a glitch to skip straight to the final levels. I use X collection version on PS2. A glitched run does not work on SNES or SFC versions.

.

Mega Man X6 (all stages)Cyberdemon5310:55:00If 100% isn't cool for you, this category goes through all the stages once to unlock the final stages. Very fast paced run and has quite a few neat glitches as well. Route and run is a lot different than the AGDQ2012 run by satoryu as well.

.

Mega Man Zero (all missions)Kuribon0:45:00Straight forward run that shows off a few tricks, RNG manipulation and how poorly implemented the "combo system" is during boss fights.

.

Mega Man: Dr. Wily's Revenge (MM1 GB)usedpizza0:25:00This is the first Mega Man game for game boy. Would be a nice, short contrast to the MM games on consoles that will be played. Features includes mashing like a mad man during cutscenes to save time. D W R

.

Metal Gear Solid Twin Snakes (Big Boss Rank)Pykn1:25:00The classic MGS1 remade in the MGS2 engine. This run is pretty difficult, but I feel that I am consistent enough to perform it in a marathon setting. Features all of the beloved bosses from MGS1 and some interesting strategies to boot.

.

Metroid (2 boss any%)Dragondarch0:35:002 Boss Any% hasn't been seen at a marathon, and still has some cool screen wraps, thanks to skipping Bombs. Any% estimate would be 0:35:00.

.

Metroid Zero Mission (100%)kirbymastah1:35:00Execution-heavy sidescroller. Category not done since AGDQ2012; very different from any% and dragondarch's amazing low% hard run. Many new swag strategies and route changes. I could do donation war between this and fusion any% if no fusion race.

.

Mickey MousecapadeCTConqueror0:10:00Simple platformer, but can get really entertaining because of Minnie Mouse (she follows you around, and is invincible except for falling into pits, which makes for some interesting jumps).

.

Mickey To Donald Magical Adventure 3MitoRequiem0:45:00My first speed game, It was the only Mickey SNES game to not be released outside of Japan, Could do a donation war for Mickey Vs Donald Mickey is slightly faster cause he can sorta wall kick off of things with his knight suit.

.

Mickey's Dangerous ChaseAdefgames0:20:00This game is hilarious. Tons of people played it as kids, and it has a kickass soundtrack. The run is pure execution in the finest sense. No glitches, just pure awesome play. PB: 14:29 http://www.twitch.tv/adefgames/c/3672404

.

Mighty Switch Force 2Duke0:40:00Switched with MSF by request of the runners.

.

Mole Maniaewaller0:15:00This game is a 2d game with similar puzzles to 2d zelda games on each screen. You go out of bounds almost immediately and warp to the last level which is a difficult boss rush which is very action paced.

.

NYeti0:30:00N is an extremely technical platformer with brutally unforgiving levels. The game's physics engine allows for frame-perfect movement, and the route has some incredibly tight optimizations in it. Current WR here: http://bit.ly/1aQHFOH

.

NeugierWomps0:30:00Crazy fun little quick japanese game involving chaingrab movement and tentacle monsters. It's super fun to watch.

.

NightSkyAlphaParticle, ZFG0:45:00Quick-paced ball rolling game with a chill atmosphere and music. Loads of neat little skips and strats packed into a short-ish game. A very watchable speedgame. Hype. (possible race with ZFG?)

.

No Time to Explain (100%)Thehealbus0:35:00A quick level based platformer similar to meat boy, you navigate with unique gear like lasers and shotguns. Extremely amusing dancing glitch that can be used to move through walls. 100% includes collecting hats(donation incentive for hat to wear?).

.

NoxOnin1:00:00Nox is an action-RPG from the same year as Diablo 2. All classes have plenty tricks and glitches; Wizard is more complicated, Warrior is more execution-heavy (and my specialty), Conjurer is slower paced. Class choice donation incentive possible.

.

OutlastSaint Connor1:00:00Lots of running and cinematics, but the jump scares, thriller/horror nature of the game, and big skips that bypass large sections of the game are interesting. Extra time can be used to show off missed/fun glitchs. Incentive: No camera run.

.

Pac-Man World 2Theruseman1:05:00Retro 3D platformer. This run has fast-paced movement and interesting glitches, as well as nearly non-stop action. Despite high acclaim and sales, PMW2 has never been at a GDQ before, and now is the time. PB is 57:40 (~49:30 on V1.1 which I now use.)

.

Pokemon Blue (151)Shenanagans_4:30:00In this run I destroy a childhood classic by abusing several glitches. Part of the appeal to this category is the fact that the route changes based on luck. This means I am doing a lot of the routing live, which adds to the entertainment value.

.

Pokemon X/Y (any% glitchless)5upamayne4:50:00Newest game of the collection. Very consistent strats are found with a lot to explain throughout the run. Run doesn't consist of going with your starter but to catch/trade and receive pokemon with good IVs. Donation incentive for names. awesome music

.

Putt-Putt Enters the Race or Putt-Putt Saves the ZooTwinge, Bananas0:10:00[We're probably only taking one of these at most.]

.

Quake: Scourge of ArmagonCubeface0:20:00One of the two Quake expansions. Since there's been Quake 1 Any% Easy at the last few GDQ's I think it'd be interesting for people to see some other Quake runs.

.

Quantum ConundrumBloodThunder1:05:00I ran this at AGDQ and felt that it went pretty well, despite the fact that the game had no sound due to technical problems and the #FreeChat dilemma. The developers showed interest in joining skype but due to scheduling, it didn't work out.

.

Ratchet & Clank: Size MattersRejectedLink1:40:00This is part of the very popular Ratchet & Clank series but is slightly different from the others due to it being a psp port. The run is very interesting to watch and is very skill based due to the fact that everything starts to kill you in 1-2 hits.

.

Ratchet & Clank: Up Your ArsenalRejectedLink1:20:00Probably the most popular Ratchet & Clank game for the ps2. A NG+ speedrun of UYA is a very interesting run due to the fact that it has many trick that are sick looking and can save mass amounts of time as well.

.

Raymanspikevegeta1:55:00About 76 new time savers have been found for this game in the last 2 months. Had an amazing response/room energy at AGDQ Bonus Stream, and we would bring the hype. With a solid run, I can produce 15 minutes better then my AGDQ run from last year.

.

Resident Evil REmake (best ending 100%)Fiercekyo2:20:00This would be a run of either Chris' or Jill's Best ending

.

Resident Evil REmake (Invisible enemy any%)Carcinogen1:50:00Donation incentives for whether to play Chris or Jill, and knifing bosses (Tyrant or Yawn). In Invisible Enemy mode, enemies are invisible, save for particle effects and reflections in mirrors.

.

Rick DangerousRoboSparkle0:35:00The original IWBTG, this trial-and-error platformer is an Amiga gem and proved a hit backstage at AGDQ. Rick raids tombs, fights Nazis and saves London from missiles, without ever losing his smile or falling victim to hidden booby traps. Indiana who?

.

Rockman 3 Burst ChaserIceplug0:50:00Action-platformer. A romhack of Rockman 3. Goes very fast. [reviewer's note: you weren't kidding]

.

Rokko ChanVucious Creed0:35:00In a bid to display more solid Megaman clones, Rokko Chan is a well-paced game that melds Classic-style gameplay with X-style movement (dashing).

PB Run: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_XUvB5gEk5E (will DEFINTELY be back in running shape by SGDQ)

.

Rom Check Failheeheex20:20:0030 minutes is for 2x any%. the record for it is 7:16:xx but because of the mechanics 30 minutes is a VERY safe estimate, can realistically be dropped to 20. there are 20 levels in the game, when you beat the game once it restarts with double speed.

.

Rosenkreuzstilette FreudenstachelVucious Creed0:40:00RKSF has yet to be seen in any GDQ event. Known as a more technical run than RKS, the game has been pushed to the limit this past year, and would like a shot in the spotlight.

PB/WR Run: http://www.twitch.tv/lvcreed/c/3497601 (Audio Desync Warning)

.

Sanic Ball (Seaside Hill 6 lap)Diabetic0:10:00Seaside Hill 6 lap, gotta go fast.

.

Sengoku BASARA 4 (Masamune any%)Tetsuo99990:30:00Similar to Utage, but with a shorter any% route and no in-game timer. The improved tag combo feature should make for a good watch.
Donation incentives to wear Dante and/or Vergil costume.

Run link - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CLb1Ee3kQTY

.

Shadow Warrior (2013)moofinmoofin, omag2:20:00Basic Any%: Start to finish. A lot of OOBs and skilled movement. Ogam has the holder and should get priority, but if you would allow, we'd like a race. Skips are found constantly. Record: http://www.twitch.tv/mrogam/c/3564690 (DLC sword incentives.)

.

Shinobi (PS2)C3Cubed1:00:00Fast hack and slash featuring ninjas, a sword that wants you to go fast or else it will eat you, and quick kills on most boss fights. Game has almost no idle time. A few bugs with precise movement and cool executions/combat makes it a fun watch.

.

Shrek: Fairytale Freakdownunusualcook0:10:00There has been a severe lack of Shrek games represented in GDQs. Disappointment has hung over the marathon like stench on an ogre. Beautiful spritework, tight gameplay, and angelic sounds make this a must watch. Stay swampy

.

Silhouette Miragekariohki, Mr. Cuatro0:55:00Amusing graphics and voice clips, fast-paced platformer/shooter. Game is a bit difficult, so the run is very skill based. Fits well with other weird Japanese games or games made by Treasure.

.

Simpsons Hit & RunDuke, LP3Tristan2:15:00(by Duke) Similar to GTA runs, a series of vehicle-based & on-foot missions. Includes platforming, some interesting exploits such as running over NPCs to skip missions, cutscene skips, and abusing car respawning to warp. This game is a cult classic.

.

SkyblazerOmnigamer0:35:00Appeared at AGDQ 2013 as a bonus game. Very exciting and optimized run that includes very little RNG and plenty of zips! Fun to watch despite the obscurity due to the broad range of techniques and environments.

.

Sonic AdvanceNaegleria0:35:00Pros: I can run Knuckles or Amy (Amy is +4 minutes), both have speed tech. Cons: Twitch viewers hate on GBA games. I can bring my GameBoyPlayer.

.

Sonic Heroes (Team Chaotix or Team Rose)Gamepro011, Veman30001:05:00As with most 3D Sonic games, Sonic Heroes is a fast-paced game with the added element of different characters to spice up gameplay, and pays off really well in speedruns. Team Chaotix offers mission-based levels, meaning you don't always use tricks to skip big parts of the level.

.

Sonic Riders (Heroes story)2dos0:25:00A faster-paced racing game featuring minimal rubber-banding, a decent amount of skips and some good tech (EG: minimizing time charging off jumps). Doing just the heroes story makes the run short, sweet and easy to digest. PB: http://bit.ly/1fMCsqr

.

Sonic the Hedgehog 2Aleck470:30:00Classic speed game that has missed a couple GDQ's now. I only run this game as Sonic. My current PB is 17:22 using in game time, which I got before I started doing the Metropolis 3 skip. [reviewer's note: You will need to provide some way for us to see your progress in this game, otherwise we will need to cut it. We can't have a repeat of what happened to this game last AGDQ.]

.

Spyro the DragonHummeldon1:00:00Potential 4 person race with Saboom, ChrisLBC, Dox_Pastr, and Me. This game is a very hard to optimise. The movement in this game takes hours of practice to master and seeing a big race would be very exciting.

.

Spyro: Year of the DragonSSBMstuff, TOTOzigemm0:40:00We revealed the finale skip @ AGDQ14, now it's time to show the entire run. If the tricks & glitches aren't enough this run skips 81 eggs from the AGDQ run, leaving more breaks and fewer autoscrollers. [alternately jot me down4 racing Nitrofski 117%]

.

SSX Trickyunusualcook0:30:00It's Tricky. Contains a great mix of OoB tricks with tight movement. It's a funky game from a funky series that people know and love. Possible donations for character outfit.

.

Stackinglillbrorsan0:45:00Made by the fine gents over at Double Fine, in this is a game you play a young russian stacking doll, you stack into other dolls, some of which have different abilities whom allow you to solve things in many different ways.

.

Star Fox 64 (any% or Red Line route)ScottJProgan0:45:00This is a speed game based not on how much time you can gain, but how much time can you not lose. A majority of this particiular speedrun includes lag reduction, slight autoscroll despawn, controller mechanics, APM optimizing, quick kill

.

Star Wars: Dark Forces (w/ Imperial City run incentive)ontwoplanks1:00:00Quickest way to beat the game and relies on accurate execution of movement and damage boosts. Judging on the questions thrown from the desk it was an engaging and well received run at AG14. Incentives: Kill the ewoks 5 mins, Max the rabbit 2 mins

.

Startropics II: Zoda's RevengeGuhbadoo1:20:00StarTropics is a well loved series and this run has a couple neat little tricks. I've improved the run significantly since it was last seen at a GDQ.

.

Streemerz (16 bags of cash)Inebriated0:10:00Streemerz was at AGDQ and it's a fun short run. 16 Bags of Cash is the superior category, and much more difficult to execute cleanly. My pb is 5:14

.

SuikodenCVagts4:15:00Gameplay and commentary are well-received on my stream. Variety of donation incentives (character/castle name, recruiting optional characters, fighting bosses); can elaborate if necessary. Have a rare Suikoden series artbook as possible prize.

.

Super Mario 3D LandBombercules1:10:00It's a pretty straightforward 3D platformer with some fun speedrunning tricks. This was run at AGDQ 2013. My best time for the category is 1:00:03, you can watch it here: http://www.twitch.tv/bombercules/c/2847325

.

Super Mario Bros. 2 (Famicom, Luigi)GameJ060:15:00This game run would be done on the Famicom version via Wii Virtual Console using Luigi. This run would be Any % With Warps to Level 8-4 as Luigi (optionally it would be nice to race this with someome)

.

Super Mario LandMegachikkenrise0:20:00As the first Mario game on Gameboy, it holds nostalgic value for viewers. It plays like SMB1, but it is its own game. It has unique enemies/bosses; environments based on Easter Island, the Orient, and Ancient Egypt; and fitting music for each zone.

.

Tetris AttackThatsFairZack0:15:00I can do any category for this game and if available, from past GDQ's, I could race this or Versus another player during the marathon to make it more interesting. Would like to run this if another player was interested in a Versus. [reviewer's note: The only mode I see on your channel is maxing out score in endless easy. You seem very competent/fluent at the game, but if this is to be considered alongside PPC, you'll need to demonstrate you can get good times on more traditional speedrun modes like Vs. on the hardest difficulty.]

.

The Binding of IsaacWomps0:50:00There are many characters you can choose from and try to get a bid war of that. But in essence, I feel that this game should be at least attempted again because of the last attempt at a GDQ did not actually make it to the end.

.

The DarknessIndextic2:20:00this run is full of tense moments, but also has a lot of down time to catch up on commentary/donation reading/other things. there aren't any big run-enders that would ruin the run, it's pretty marathon safe

.

The GrinchJumpyluff1:00:00Any% in this game shows off plenty of what the game has to offer. There are a few major skips, a very clean route, and it is a very marathon-friendly run. No gimmicks, just an all around amazing game and category.

.

The HobbitSimpleFlips, iRule1:10:00The Hobbit is a 3D platformer. Features exteme visible breaks, loading zone abuse, and OoB physical breaks. It is as aesthetically broken as a game can get.
A few examples of what the Speedrun has in store:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7Y_ioE0-8tw

.

Thief II: The Metal AgeSocratesJohnson1:30:00Any% for Thief II means playing on normal, and beating each level as fast as possible. This is mostly an execution heavy game, but there are some cool tricks thrown into the mix, and some decent skips on a few missions. Thanks for the consideration.

.

Thirty Flights of Loving + Gravity Bonemoofinmoofin0:15:00Extremely short game with optimized quake-like movement. Crash cuts make the game feel extremely fast. The prequel to this game, Gravity Bone, is something I could do as well, making the total estimate 15 min. Also very short and movement based.

.

Timesplitters: Future PerfectTaylortotftw1:40:00ran at a previous GDQ, however it was co-op, not single player. The difference between the two is pretty big, and although slower, it is a lot more optimized than co-op and should be deathless. It is also played on easy difficulty, not hard.

.

Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4George0:55:00A Tony Hawk game where 91 goals are received by pedestrians and are completed one at a time. Fun to route and play through. Possible donation incentive includes Sim Mode, an unlockable that speeds the game up by ~20% and increases gravity.

.

Trackmania 2: Stadium (all tracks)TeighMart1:40:00Incredibly fast passed, highly optimized PC precision racing game with very little down time and very exciting gameplay. There hasn't been a PC racing game at a GDQ before so this entry would be a great start.

.

Trauma Center: Second OpinionMexiricanBassMonkey, Carcinogen2:00:00Nothing more fun then watching a nerd flail around zapping zombie cancer. Wearing scrubs and gloves during the run can either be a donation incentive or I will wear them regardless. If CrystalBeauty offers TC I would love for this to be a race!

.

Ty theTasmanian Tigerdarkpapo11:15:00Ty the Tasmanian Tiger is a fast paced forgotten classic that's recently been broken to pieces recently. Marathon safe and interesting route that people who have never played the game can appreciate.

.

Vanquish (casual difficulty, one-handed)halfcoordinated2:05:00This game has progressed greatly since its AGDQ 2012 showing(PB/WR is 50+ minutes faster). A very fast paced and intense run with good advanced strategies. NOTE: I play one-handed normally, this is not just a gimmick!

.

We Love Katamaridevteam1:15:00Any% involves doing each stage once and then completing roll up the sun. I currently have the best time AFAIK with 1:01:35, and I can easily get it below an hour before the marathon. WLK has a nice variety of stage types compared to the original game

.

Wild Arms (glitched)cha0sSDA2:35:00A jrpg, but the majority of the speed techs are glitches, appealing to a general audience, vs game mechanics, which only fans would like. encounters are removed early on, can save anywhere, glitches are used often, and lengthy cutscenes are avoided.

.

Xena: Warrior PrincessBrossentia0:45:00Terrible game based on amazing show. Puns and polygons. Was great on SGDQ bonus stream. Incentive for amazing cutscenes. Add 7 minutes if incentive is met. Most of the cutscenes: http://www.twitch.tv/brossentia/c/3650376

.

Yoshi's IslandThecrispy2:00:00Yoshi has been a gdq favorite in the past and speaks for itself. Warpless is a great category with tricks in almost every room and is intense throughout the run. I have put my heart into this game and am one of the best at it.

.

Zelda 1 (Swordless)snorlax1:15:00A risky run made safe through extensive routing, with a nice variety in paths, item usage, and general strategies; I have the best time by far. The run ends at Ganon, so the time includes an incentive for Darkwing to get a sword and finish the job.

.

Zelda: Link to the Past (100%)Inebriated2:00:00ALttP has done really well at the last few marathons. 100% hasn't been
run yet, and it's a nice change from Any% No S+Q. My pb is currently
1:49:20. Only problem with it is that there are two heavy RNG parts.

.

Zelda: Minish CapFalcoEagle, ancientpower, Atroz, Koizata2:30:00(by FalcoEagle) Minish Cap hasn't seen a good marathon run yet, and I don't think many people have seen the run as it was meant to be. Other runners of the game might go as well so we could possibly have of a race, and races can be quite exciting for this game.

.

Zelda: Ocarina of Time (any% no wrong warp)Whatsoup1:10:00I submitted this earlier and was told I needed a PB video/to get better, so I did both. Here is my PB, which is currently ranked 13th on the leaderboard: http://www.twitch.tv/whatsoup/c/3694043.

.

Zelda: Oracle of SeasonsMapler, mashytrr, Bananas2:30:00(by Mapler) Beats the game. Solid 2d Zelda that continues what LADX started. Estimate is pretty safe and I expect to be able to lower it after I've done more runs.
