It started at my 12.30am so I only caught the first couple of runs but just wanted to reiterate that Ratchet & Clank run was amazing. Every level was like "We're going to casually break physics in 4 different ways."

What's a good speedrun to show new people? People who don't know about speedrunning or gaming. Thanks, guys.

I still maintain that Halfcoordinated's Transformers run is great: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=APVsIGyX7sM

Impressive skill, clear commentary, relatively short, and, if all else fails, really dumb puns and everyone cracking up and slash or groaning. I've gotten two people to watch the whole way through. Then they started quoting the dumbest puns and I regretted everything.

Besides the good runs, I also think a lot more of the commentary is on point. Quite a few runners were plain pleasant and earnest. A lot were informative and seem to have some structure to how they wanted to show information. Not a lot of jokes that get run into the ground.
