Author's comments and explanations:
I don't think SGNG (whoa i made it up:p) needs any introduction.

Back in the day I never actually finished SGNG I only got to the point where the princess tells you to get the oh so powerfull goddess' bracelet and summons you back to the start. So I dug up some walkthroughs wanting to know where can I find it. And as the walkthrough kept talking about "the 5th chest you open has the ring", THE RING?, and when I had opened my 3rd chest. I had some weird fairy-like thing coming out, later on I realized it was the goddess' bracelet or the ring or whatever you prefer :p. So I lost about 1½-2seconds while opening my 4th chest. I also "miss" couple of shots to the bosses but none of them affects my time nor looks bad imo ;), and I miss the red gargoyles on purpose to keep them away from me :p.
Oh almost forgot about the weapon of choice, it was so long ago when I last played this game that I had no idea about which weapon would be the fastest one to use. Although im pretty sure the dagger that I used first is the fastest one. In the quest finding the bracelet I used it from lvl2 till the end.


Bisqwit: Nobody has discussed this submission. Only one has casted a vote.
I had a look at the first 7 minutes of this movie.
Although it plays a nearly impossible level of difficulty, it doesn't look very impressive - it's just someone playing the game. It progresses slowly and does nothing particularly impressive.
Does someone have another opinion?

Phil: That game is pretty hard but there's not a lot of action and the fact we must watch the game twice makes it extremely boring.


Bisqwit: The fate of this movie depends on the conclusion on the question in the topic 'should a game that requires being completed twice actually be played twice'. As far as I know, that topic is still unconcluded.

Phil: Problem resolved.
