Speedrunning is a video-game activity involving trying to complete a video game in the smallest amount of time. The community is split between those who do this "glitchless," without using any "glitches" (sometimes considered "cheats") or known exploits, and those who use any knowledge they have to complete the game.

While the community can be intensely competitive, the main goal is to decrease the final game time. Players encourage each other to "beat my time" and tell each other new exploits that might be used to complete the game faster.


Examples Wanted: Editors are encouraged to add more examples or a wider variety of examples.
