Dragster, released in 1980 for the Atari 2600, is the first video game developed by Activision. It was programmed by David Crane, who later wrote Pitfall! The object of the game is to either beat the player's opponent across the screen, or to race against the clock for best time, depending on the settings used.
The game is well known as having the first console speedrun with the world record of 5.51 by Todd Rogers in 1982 according to Twin Galaxies. This record is known as the oldest, unbeaten world record in all of speedrunning.
MrWint & Omnigamer decided to try and match the elusive 5.51, and disassembled the entire game looking for how the 5.51 was achieved. After conducting their research, they found that the long sought 5.51 was outright impossible to achieve within the internal conditions of the game. After lots of flamewars, the now infamous Todd Rogers's record has been taken down, leading to his ban from Twin Galaxies.
This run achieves the fastest possible time of 5.57 on player two while also maximizing the distance, with player one completing the track in the lowest amount of input frames. It also improves the predecessor movie by 00:00.10 seconds, which translates to 00:00.02 seconds if you discard emulation differences. The improvement comes from the fact that the game processes the second player first, so he's the one taking the lead this time.

Watch this run being played back on a real console.

Donkey Kong is an arcade platform game released by Nintendo in 1981. It presented an early (if not the first) example of the platform genre, and was the first to incorporate multiple playfields, as well as the ability to jump. It is also the first game designed for Nintendo by Shigeru Miyamoto, and his influence was immediately apparent, as he introduced both the eponymous Donkey Kong and Mario (originally named Mr. Video and then Jumpman) in his debut game. Donkey Kong would become one of the most influential and commercially successful arcade games of all time, and some 35 years hence, competition for the highest score remains fierce.

Disney's Lilo & Stitch is a 2002 side-scrolling shoot 'em up platform video game based on the Disney animated film of the same name that was released on June 7, 2002 for the Game Boy Advance. It was developed by Digital Eclipse and published by Disney Interactive, with Ubisoft distributing the game in Europe and Australia.
The game takes place at an unknown point of time after the original film. An extraterrestrial bounty hunter kidnaps Lilo and brings her aboard the spaceship laboratory of a robotic, mosquito-like alien named Dr. Pestus, who plans to use her as food for his genetically-modified mosquito army. Stitch must go out into space to rescue Lilo and defeat Dr. Pestus.
In most levels, the player takes control of a four-armed, plasma blaster-wielding Stitch who must run and gun his way past enemies and various other obstacles to complete the level. In puzzle-platform-styled levels, the player takes control of Lilo as she sneaks around the spaceship to find a way to escape and contact Stitch. In tube shooter-styled segments, Stitch must fly a spaceship to reach the next level, shooting down other enemy ships and dodging obstacles along the way.

Taking place in a different part of the Denjuu world from the first one, this game shares some qualities with Telefang 1.

Along the way, he encounters Diabolos, who is not content with humans entering the Denjuu universe and so is killing off the Antenna Trees, thereby cutting off access to the Human World.

Mr. Driller 2 is a fast-paced puzzle game where you have to drill to the bottom of the level within a fixed time limit. This TAS completes the 10 stock Time Attack Driller courses of the game instead of the Mission Driller mode and the Endless Driller mode.
In this run, klmz drills through the ten time attack courses in slightly under seven and a half minutes. Furthermore, he aims primarily for in-game time, as it adds to the entertainment value and adds also to the strategy, as there are time bonuses in this mode which subtract time.
This is an improvement of 5.47 in-game seconds over the previous publication. The real time improvement is 00:04.10 seconds. All of the improvements came from optimizations and better routes. This also features some play-style change that erases much more blocks without losing any time.

Keitai Denjū Telefang (携帯電獣テレファング) is a series of video games produced by Natsume and published by Smilesoft. The games are monster-battling games, where the player contacts various creatures using a cell phone-like device called a D-Shot in order to get them to battle the foes he or she will encounter. The name of the series derives from Keitai, which is Japanese for "cell phone," since phoning creatures is an integral part of the game, and "fang," to symbolize the various beasts involved.
Passwords (phone numbers) can be used to obtain very strong Denjuu, but are not used in this run. There's also a way to beat this game insanely fast with the use of major glitches, like this other movie we have for this game does, but those aren't used in this run either.

Only, they quickly find out that there is trouble amuck at their island destination. A culprit has coated the world with goop and paint. Even worse, according to the locals he just happens to look like Mario. Mistaken for the true offender, Mario's would-be vacation instead turns out to be another day on the job as he is convicted of the villain's crimes and is ordered to clean up the world with a water-spewing device that straps to his back, which just happens to add a whole new layer of depth to the usual platforming action.
Here, zelpikukirby & Goldfire use tools to show just how nimble the famed plumber can be. Focusing on revenge rather than reparation, they bring the perpetrator to justice after collecting only 43 shine sprites, leaving plenty of time for Mario and his friends to indulge in the rest and relaxation they originally set out to enjoy.
