175. The Town With No Name

The Town With No Name (1992, PC) by On-Line Entertainment

Current Any% Leaderboard (speedrun.com)

My name’s not Shane, kid.

Current NES Leaderboard (Any%)

“This game… is ******* Hydliiiiide” -Toad22484

Lester the Unlikely (1994, SNES) by DTMC

Current Any% Leaderboard (speedrun.com)

I remember accidentally renting this as a kid. Don’t ask me how I managed to do that. I don’t remember. Perhaps it was all they had. Maybe we were just kids and thought “hehehehe let’s play a game where you play as a dork”...

100. Ninja Baseball Bat Man

Ninja Baseball Bat Man (1993, Arcade) by Irem

Current 4P Co-op Leaderboard (speedrun.com)
