I used to think the same. But watching this event kind of changed that, they were giving great commentary on the inner workings of the games code and what they were doing to break it.
I found that part very interesting. And some of it takes a ton of skill to pull off, but others it was monotonous garbage.
The Final Fantasy 1 any % run for example is basically going up and down the stairs in the first town 50+ times after naming your characters in specific ways to glitch the game into running the credits.
Final Fantasy 6 has a route that requires dying 50+ times and then inputting certain buttons to do the same.
But I watched runs of both of those games that used glitches to progress in ways they shouldn't be able to, but still beat the game in a somewhat traditional manner.
