NES Shadowgate and Deja Vu Speedruns

Kemco's two masterpiece first person quasi role-playing games Shadowgate and Deja Vu on the Nintendo get 0wn3d in under ten minutes by the pancake man, once again shaming your gaming prowess down a notch. I have fond memories of both these games... and spending like 6 hours a day for weeks figuring out what the hell to do. It was pretty much a crap shoot. You'd enter a room with some pissed off people on the right, a random object in the middle, and eighteen doors - should you stab the demon in the eye with your keychain or put the green bowling ball the skeleton gave me into his pants? You'd have to beg Nintendo Power for a clue. But this guy memorized it and flies though it with baffling ease, check out these pre-powerpoint transitions! I got to sample Deja Vu for like 30 minutes in that Nintendo World Tour competition back in 1991 and was stuck in the bathroom the entire time, just like in real life.
