^This may be a more existential question, but the real answer is that AuthorBlues is a speedrunner who really loves bad games.

Now if you ever have to play Wand of Gamelon you can beat it quickly and reduce your suffering.

Zelda moves so slow that it's painful to watch

Why would you willingly play the CD-I Zeldas?

Yep. I get that it takes all types and whatnot, but the idea of spending enough time with games you admit are bad to be able to speedrun them is completely unfathomable to me. I don't have enough time to play all of the good games, let alone everything else worth doing.

Power to him if it's what makes him happy, I guess. I just know that my last words aren't going to be "I only wish I'd spent more time with Wand of Gamelon."

BigNose the Caveman is a personal favorite of mine.

I'd also recommend checking out any of the Awful Games blocks from the AGDQs. The run of Donkey Kong 5: Journey of over Time and Space from AGDQ 2017 is so good[DOUBLEPOST=1486069751,1486069661][/DOUBLEPOST][QUOTE="I am nobody, post: 1620851, member: 34539"]Yep.

I feel you. It's worth noting that Auth likes to cleanse his palette by speedrunning games like Super Mario World and LttP as well.

Because they're not that bad.

Except for Zelda's Adventure.
