TASVideos / Front Page edit / delete

Tool-assisted speedruns. These are often technically very interesting, although it mostly focusses on games I don't like very much (what Americans were playing in the early 90s, i.e. games for Japanese consoles). The NetHack speedruns here are pretty impressive.
