I like to survey the community about every 3 months just to see what peeks their interest the most. List off game series you would like to see and just because we've done the marathon before doesn't mean you shouldn't list it.

I want to get a general idea for marathons down the road.

To eliminate any speculation, this wont affect the game series we do for the secret marathon. Of course, that has been decided long ago.

Well I can't wait for the final fantasy marathon but as for one I would like to see that isn't coming up... I don't have a clue xD. The only games to come to mind is the legend of legia series which can be beat in less then 12 hours.

Mega Man and/or Mega Man X/Zero/ZX etc.
Fire Emblem
Final Fantasy (SO excited!)
Dragon Quest/Warrior
Breath of Fire
Sonic the Hedgehog (Thanks CapcomMaster)
Castlevania

Kingdom Hearts- after BBS and 385/2 days to have enough games... possibly also after 3 comes out/ Kirbys/ Pokemon/ Mario RPG- could combine with a huge all mario games marathon/ Zelda/ Sonic/ randomly throw Okami into a marathon. You could add it to the Petz marathon...

Jagger, I love Bomberman, although I haven't played one since the 64 era. I played the heck out of those games :shock:

I would love to see a Bomberman marathon! But do you know what I would love more? A 1002-hour, 99-point Desert Bus (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desert_Bus#Desert_Bus) marathon!

And if that is not long enough for you, you could do a Vib-Ribbon (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vib-Ribbon) marathon with every song you can find. Or a Vib-Ripple (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vib-Ripple) marathon with as many silly pictures as you can find.

Also 100% Mario marathon.

Bomberman would be groovy, although I feel like it would get a little repetitive after a while...and having to inevitably include Act Zero would make me sad. ):

I think you could speed run Phoenix Wright. All you need to do is memorize the correct investigation and trial process, then plow through it. You could even write it down and follow that. The cases never change, so you could totally do it. That would be fun to watch too.

Yep I think the Star Wars Games are so awesome. (Most of them.)

04-04-2009, 11:07 AM
I think by LucasArts he was referring to Monkey Island, Loom, Sam and Max, Grim Fandango, etc. :P

I don't know if I've actually chipped in with a preference, but I'd love to do a Castlevania marathon. By a quick count there are 22 games in that series that we could do.

Castlevania is totally my second choice for a marathon (behind MEGA MAN of course _awesome_ _megaman_ _awesome_ ) You guys definitely have to do that sometime. I Wikipedia'd it and found a total of 28 Castlevania games! :o I dunno if you would be able to get them all though. :(

You really need to try the Mega Man X Collection. It's a lot easier than the classic series and has a much more interesting and darker story line.

too epic of a marathon words cannot describe this...
Too hard of a marathon even phil's hat might have some trouble with it......
This game is on the best console ever made......
All but one wonders who wouldn't want this marathon.......
If you are that one please leave and drive away.....
this marathon is so huge it would crash 500 people's internets in 3 minutes....
It wont fit on that ustream screen....
this wonderful marathon would be.........

A BUSYTOWN MARATHON !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Please include Mirror's edge in a marathon soon!!! I really want to see a complete speed run of the game, of which i'm not controlling.

Since you guys have already answered my prayers with the TSG Network, I'm happy with whatever you guys throw out for marathons next. But if you could indulge me one wish, it would be a Fire Emblem marathon. You see, I am but a poor soul with two broken FE7 and FE8 GBA cartridges... and I would ever so much love s'more Fire Emblem, sir.

I think it was Phil that told me in the last marathon chat that an FE marathon wouldn't be fun to watch. I really beg to differ. Visually, I'd rather watch FE than Final Fantasy, by a long jump. They might be boring if you turn off animations in order to speed run, but that's why you don't do that. :P Actually, I love the overworld battle animations. :D So I wouldn't even have a problem with that. There's enough American-released games, now, to fill a good amount of time. It might be an obscure series, but not nearly as much as Mother.

I'd certainly love to see this, and I'm sure others will, too.

MSico
04-16-2009, 08:53 PM
If the love is there for Fire Emblem (it certainly is among TSG) then we will throw it in for consideration. We've got plans for awhile already, but if people truly want to see an S-RPG series with mostly 2D graphics that can't really be speed-ran, then right on!

This is probably a wild thought out there... but what about playing all of the Donkey Kong games, except Arcade of course? All the way to the current Wii game. Though, it is a question to see which version yall decide to play. But dang, that's a lot of games. Not even including the arcade and Japanese only ones. I doubt that this could be a marathon, but I'd honestly love to see one. DK64 would probably be the only one interesting to watch, to be honest.

I don't know if this has been said yet (too lazy to check), but a Mario RPG marathon sounds like a good idea to me

(just to make it clear - by Mario RPGs, I mean Paper Mario, Paper Mario: TTYD, Super Mario RPG, and the three Mario and Luigi games (maybe Super Paper Mario as well))

Honestly though, anything would be great - I mean, I'm not a fan of the Metal Gear series, but I plan on watching as much of that marathon as I can. The Speed Gamers are just that awesome _awesome_

The world as we know it would be different. Up would be down. Right would be West. 1+1 would be 11.

O.K I am pretty sure I posted about what marathons I would like to see else where, oh well! O.K first off I would have to agree with dry, I would really like to see a Megaman marathon. Second I assume Sonic said he would like to see a Sonic marathon and I would defiantly have to agree with him! Seeing a Sonic marathon would be a great idea! Thirdly I would like to see a Star Fox marathon but I heard bobo has already got one of those in the works. And finally I would like to see another Metroid and Halo marathon. Those two were one of the best marathons I have seen YET. :lol: I would say Metal Gear marathon but my wish has already came true. ;)

I wouldn't mind seeing some kind of Naughty Dog/Insomniac Games Marathon. I don't think the Crash Bandicoot series has enough games to justify 72 hours of it, but adding in some Jak, Ratchet, or even some Spyro would be really awesome.

just to get this straight... a megaman marathon would be evil to make TSG go through. I dont know if this is true for all of you out there, but these games are hard as heck. I have been told how much effort TSG are putting into completing marathons (preparations where they need to practise and study the entire game to find the best routs, best way to kill etc.). I think you need some sort of special talent to complete a megaman game.

I am sure that a lot of people will say against me now, but I dont think the megaman-marathon will ever happen.

P.S: Umm... I'm not too updated, but if I have already been proven wrong, please ignore this post XD

I think you need some sort of special talent to complete a megaman game.

The key to any Mega Man game is time and practice. Yes they are hard, at first, but they are also predictable and repetitive. All it takes is some practice and experience. When I first got Mega Man 9 (widely regarded as one of, if not the hardest Mega Man games), I could barely get through a level, if at all. I still have my first save file with about half the robot masters beaten and a time of over 8 hours. Now I can do a straight run through in about an hour, and the last time I did so I was half asleep. After playing each level so many times you start to realize when and where enemies pop up and can prepare for them. You can shoot at the area where an enemy will appear and destroy them before they ever become a threat. As skilled as The Speed Gamers are, I'm sure they could manage.

Consequently, if you guys ever need someone to speed run Mega Man 4, 6, 9 or X I'm available. ;)

dryuriev7777
05-06-2009, 12:23 PM
Yeah Mega Man games can be incredibly hard when you first play them, however everything in every Mega Man game has a very strict pattern and can be easily memorized. I always figured a Mega Man marathon would be relatively easy to do simply because there is virtually no random variables, aside from maybe what attacks that the bosses decide to use, that can mess you up along the way.

And lol Tromby I think everyone could do a speed run of X.

puregamer123
05-06-2009, 12:38 PM
I guess you guys are right about that. Megaman games are probaly easy if you practise a lot, but I wouldn't know if the speed gamers are all great megaman players. For those on my level (not able to complete a stage) that marathon would be torture.

... then again... they would probaly just select the skilled megaman players to do the marathon.

A Paper Mario marathon would be interesting

But for that you could add in Super Mario RPG first, since it pretty much fits in there
I think the four games combined, plus replaying some like you do for the Mother Marathon could help add up to 72 hours

I'd like, stay up the whole time :D

If they were to do this, they would also do the Mario & Luigi RPGs as well probably. Also, Bobo did a marathon that had all the Paper Marios in it. I don't know if they would do a marathon this close from bobo's.

A Spyro marathon. That is a game that took up a lot of my childhood that I haven't seen yet x3 They have quite a few games now too, but old school will always be the best.

Kingdom Hearts is another one, though I'm not sure how you'll fill up all the time. Maybe wait till more come out.

For Mario, I wasn't around too and I'd like to see someone speedrun these. I'm currently training to tryout a SpeedRun or a Let's play of Super Mario Sunshine... But this wont be before the end of the summer, when I'll get my capture card.

I'd like to see a Sonic Marathon, involving every non portable game and Shadow the Hedgehog. But speeding up the main 3d ones are going to be pretty tough, especially 2006 and Unleashed.

If not that, perhaps a Castlevania Marathon.

Blaumagier
05-22-2009, 01:25 PM
Sonic '06 would have to be played on Xbox 360 and Sonic Unleashed on Wii for optimal speed.

I think right about now I would like to see a Sonic marathon the MOST after everything that is alread scheduled. It's a lot of games, but I think all the Sonic games on Sonic Mega Collection, Sonic Gems Collection, and Sonic Adventure DX: Director's Cut would take up more than 72 hours. However that is mostly because SADX has all the Game Gear games on it. If you cut those out, which aren't important to the series at all since they were retconned, you can beat what's left very quickly. All 5 of the Genesis games are very short, Sonic the Fighters, Sonic CD, and Sonic R are short as well. That then leaves you with the 3D games.

I know that SA1 can be short, but long if you get lost easy. SA2 is hilariously short compared to SA1 and linear to boot. Both Sonic Riders games are ridiculously short as well. Sonic Rivals and Sonic Rush games can be zipped through real fast, like the Genesis games. From here on out it gets rough. Sonic Heroes and Shadow the Hedgehog are both pretty long. Sonic '06 is plagued with long loading times, which can be cut down on the 360 while Sonic Unleashed isn't going to make a big difference if played on anything but a Wii, the menu replacing town exploration would add up after a while. Sonic Advance games could take a long time if going for the true ending, if not they can be zipped through. That leaves Sonic Battle and Sonic Chronicles, both will last at least 5+ hours each (except battle unless you are a MASTER, and Chronicles has no reason to last more than 10 hours). I don't really know how long the 2 Story Book Sonic games are as I haven't played them through yet.

I think I covered everything.

That said, I would still love to see a Sonic Marathon pulled off, but some research would be required to figure out standard times for quickly completing each game to see if they could all fit into 72 hours. I think it would definitely be close, but doable, if the Game Gear games aren't included.

I've never been a fan of Metroid. I played a good bit of Metroid Prime and liked it, but never really got into the whole series. I tried the original Metroid after I played Metroid Prime and hated it.

Perhaps another one would be nice, but I think TSG needs to start limiting their annually reocurring marathons, I mean at this point we've got Zelda, MOTHER, and Pokemon as annually reoccurring. Perhaps they should wait til next year to do another Metroid marathon, just so people don't expect it every year.

If its really underrated, it must just don't have a big company behind it (like EA) so the game reviewers don't give awesome notes and don't promote it as much. Maybe it's why I haven't heard of it.
I'm in Canada too, this can make a difference if the game have not a big budget it could be only released in the US.

Now that you mention it a Castlevania marathon would be amazing. And there is defiantly enough games in the series to do an entire 72 hour marathon. Though if you guys did do one I wonder if some games will be in consideration or not like what about Castlevania Judgement? Doesn't that have a story line? Though it would be amazing to see a game like Castlevania and Castlevania III being played. Give it some thought TSG ;)

Yeah, I'd like to see this too. The Suikoden series is one of my favorite RPG series.

Actually, I was thinking a puzzle game marathon. Tetris, Dr. Mario, Yoshi, Yoshi's Cookie, Picross, Puzzle League/Tetris Attack, Kirby's Avalanche/Robotnik's Mean Bean Machine, etc.

:^/ It might be dull to see a game played that requires you to figure out puzzles, if you've already solved them all before you start. It's like spending a half-hour listening to someone recite pi. Although it's great that you can remember so much of it, it's not very exciting to sit through for that long.

Although strangely, I kind of got into staring at the pokemon marathon. There's something about it that has me on the edge of my seat to find out if their Fly hit each time. O_o

Tetris and Tetris Attack are pretty cool though, because of the randomized tables and having an opponent.

The first day in the forth month, April. Unless that is in the non-American (er... you know what I mean...) style of date format and it is January 4th?


Oh and also I'm going to quote a post in here earlier (just as a reminder):

The next Zelda marathon is TOMORROW :o

And by now everybody should know to not believe anything they see or hear, only half that they read, and 15% of what Phil says.
(Or something like that.)
And now I see that, as SDB said, that is way to generous.


You know me... I'm still waiting for Animal Crossing... and I'm sure I will keep waiting for a long time.

Well, since this (http://forums.thespeedgamers.com/viewtopic.php?f=58&t=2229&p=53012#p53012) happened ( :lol: ), I have no doubt that Gwellin would change BOTH of your names. :lol:

Even though I'm not the police, I think that this has gotten a tiny bit off-topic.

Another marathon (other then Animal Crossing) that would be interesting, is a Pokemon Side-Game marathon (like Stadium, Ranger, Trozei, Puzzle League, Snap, Mystery Dungeon, etc.).

3rd marathon banjo kazooie, one resson is that i am going to use it as a walkthrough for banjo kazooie and banjo kazooie is my 5th fav game and fav game for the 64.

2nd marathon sonic games, because sonic is cool and it could be great for me and many other peeps

1st marathon halo, i know u did it all ready but i did not know about this site and one of my frends fav game is halo and i told him if the speed gamers did the halo marathon i would tell him

This is a stupid Idea but, I think a 3 day marathon of all call of duty multiplayer games. Everyone should change their clan tag to TSG and we could all play together, get a little competative and see how many time we can prestige. Like I said, terrible Idea, but it would get everyone in the community involved and would be good.

Games:
COD4: Modern Warfare
COD5: World At War
and if its out
COD: Modern Warfare 2
