"Complete Super Metroid in under x hours" or certain game that people have to complete in a set amount of time" is referred to as a speedrun

again from wikipedia;

A speedrun is a play-through, or recording thereof, of a whole video game or a selected part of it (such as a single level) performed with the intent of completing it as fast as possible, optionally under certain prerequisites, mainly for the purposes of entertainment and competition. The term, a compound of the words speed and run (as in "running" through a game, referring to the playing of a game) is only used in the context of games that were not originally or primarily designed with fast completion in mind (one generally does not speedrun a racing game; in those cases the game's standard setting for achieving and recording fast times is called a time attack or time trial mode).
