If you ever notice a video game randomizer valid for inclusion that is not already listed, please contact me so I can add it! Special thanks to the numerous contributors so far that have made this list what it is today!

RandoMania on Twitch regularly streams live randomizer video content, such as speedrunning tournaments.

You can chat with other randomizer enthusiasts on the Randomizer Central Discord community.

For those interested in creating randomizers, ROMHacking.net is a good place to start learning how to do so.

For those that perfer an original game experience but still want to experience a randomized challenge, Retro Bravery and Hitman Roulette can generate interesting rulesets with randomized goals for many classic video games.

Honorable mention: The Nintendo 64 version of Resident Evil 2 contains an unlockable Randomizer mode. As far as I'm aware, it is the earliest use of this term in a video game, and the very first item randomizer.
