And Now For Some Adventure Game Speedruns

Really, why would anyone want to rush through an adventure or any other game for that matter? Games do cost money you know and unfortunately money doesn't grow on trees... Oh, I see, I see. You terrorist pirates! Your lives are forfeit! I mean how could you? Don't you know them poor EA, Lucasarts & Nintendo executives have wives, an army of girlfriends and 2 Ferraris to support? Tsk, tsk, heartless bastards...

Anyway. To see Sam & Max Hit the Road impressively beaten in 44 minutes, Monkey Island in 39 minutes and a variety of other particularly impressive adventure speedruns (including a DOTT one) have a look at the aptly named Adventure Speedruns site. It will most probably cheer you up.
