Speedrunning is, to most of us, a sort of forbidden gaming art - the kind of thing we watch on Youtube, enraptured, and then go back to our mortal lives afterwards. When players manage to finish games that should take tens of hours, it's undeniably fascinating to see.
But this doesn't mean there aren't games you could speedrun. In fact, there are a whole lot of games even casual players could complete in under ten minutes, without having to become some sort of godlike savant at using a controller.
This might sound wild - and it very much is - it also does make a strange kind of sense. Not every game can have a complex system of skips that you need in order to make a perfect run, and it's arguably often cooler to see casual gamers be able to get almost record times while speedrunning through certain games.
Some games take hours of luck, concentration, and skill to get even near the quickest speedrun. Some just want you to run to the nearest town and help kill an old wizard.
