The last Metroid is in captivity. The galaxy is at peace…
…Well it was until my head exploded watching 4 of the best Super Metroid speed runners duke it out head to head.
I think what is amazing about this video is that I find commentary and the crowd really add to the excitement of watching these guys play. The commentators describe techniques and areas superbly while the audience reacts to every amazing feat or missed opportunity for the players. The whole experience is so emotionally engaging!
Here’s the link to the original AGDQ2013 video, along with other speed runs from Metroid games.
