I'd love me some long demos - Know of any?

Recommended Posts

Hi all! I'm still here, still watching runs, although I don't even recall the last time I posted anything... (Searches) Oh wow, 7 years ago almost to the day. Huh. So much has changed since then...


Anyway, I'm in the mood for some longer demos where possible; if you've got a 15-minute beat-em-up through especially to a 6-hour slaughterfest with kills in the 15k range (so to speak) and beyond, I'm up for watching it. Does anyone have any recommendations for some especially long plays they consider entertaining? I've been loving the skill shown in shorter runs as well, and across a huge variety of maps and WADs, but right now I just feel like some longform appreciation to mix it up a bit.


Suggestions appreciated! :)

There's been a flurry of long demos submitted to DSDA in the past year or two, especially of the D2All variety. I think the longest is Arbys550's Sunder D2All UV Max in 6:40:47, but there's a bunch of others spanning multiple hours too, and new ones keep coming in with surprising frequency. There's more mentioned in the speedrunning writeup in the sidebar of the 2021 Cacowards, so I'm not going to repeat those, but they'll keep you busy for a while.

I also like watching long demos. Well, more like using them as a background noise and paying attention only to interesting fights.

Let's see what I can suggest...

Also, check out Zero Master's runs of the new Sunder maps, those maps are very long and two of them surpass 2 hours! New Sunder isn't finalized yet, so it's not on dsda, but you can find his demos in this thread, along with links to his youtube videos.

Since it hasn't been mentioned yet, check out JCD's Plutonia D2All NM100S (1:11:39): YouTube, demo

For more IWAD stuff, there are also relatively recent records for Doom II, Plutonia, and TNT D2All UV Max.

Check out Ancalagon's demos for Cosmogenesis.

I know there are plenty of obscenely long Tyson demos too, but I don't remember them off the top of my head.

Here're some long demos, but I doubt they're gonna make it past entertaining criteria.

Just finished watching the Sunlust D2All, loved it from start to finish. Can I just say WOW those levels are gorgeous!! What beautiful designs!


There is a fantastic collection of suggestions here, thank you very much everyone for highlighting these for me! Greatly appreciated.


I'm stuck at home with Covid (it's horrid) at the moment so these are going to be extra handy :)
