Hey guys, it’s around that time of year again, a magical time where it just feels like one long hazy week filled with 5:00 AM “What am i doing with my life” viewings of 100% master blaster zero runs. Not only as a avid follower of TAS videos and speedruns in general but also now as a co-owner of a game company i’m super excited for SGDQ and all the interviews with indie developer it brings.
For those of you who don’t know or haven’t heard, https://gamesdonequick.com/ is an incredible organization that does speedrunning events multiple times a year taking donations that entirely go to charities. The events are incredibly entertaining to watch and does a great deal of good for charities, just last year they raised 2.2 million dollars for the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
It’s really incredible to see so many people come together for such a great cause, and whether you’re a viewer, runner, volunteer, or staff member for this short time of one week time everyone is united through the medium of games. It really just goes to show how much video games have grown, from something viewed as a pastime for kids in the past to a major factor bringing together millions of people worldwide to do good for charity.
To my fellow stream monsters earnestly waiting to raise your 4Head s I can’t wait to fight alongside you all.
See you guys there (ง ͠° ͟ل͜ ͡°)ง
