I mean zero-offense by this :

What is so impressive about a speed run where you had to use tools to make the game easier to play quickly? I have watched one of super-metroid and I guess it would have been fun to play like that(I know I love zipping through mega man X), but I always thought speed runs were a display of skill and for bragging rights. However, when someone is using tools to achieve said-skill, the purpose of the speed run is lost to me.

Once again, not knocking your video, but this is something I have always wondered about Tool-Assisted Speedruns. I'm sure that tools make played-out games more fun to play, but why make a video of it? Anyone could do the same video with the same tools.
