hi fellow speed run nerds, the twice-per-year awesome display of skill known as AGDQ starts tomorrow.



Below is this years schedule!(The schedule will automatically revert to the time-zone you're logged in on now!)


Once again AGDQ (Awesome Games Done Quick) has been postponed in person due to the worldwide pandemic. Therefore, Games Done Quick has decided to hold, once again this as an online event - Sunday to Sunday, to raise money for Prevent The Cancer Foundation!

GDQ is a semi-annual video game speed-run charity marathon held in the United States, originally organized by the Speed Demo's Archive and Speed-runs Live communities.The two main marathons AGDQ and SGDQ are both 7 day, 24 hours straight marathons that are streamed on Twitch and YouTube. Apart from the streams being in English, the last few years there has been a French, German and even a Russian re-stream with people giving up their own time to translate and commentate in their own native language.Since 2015, it has been handled by Games Done Quick, LLC. Held since 2010, the events have raised money for several charities; the most common two being the Prevent Cancer Foundation and Doctors Without Borders.

Few last random facts and info!
What do AGDQ and SGDQ stand for?!

AGDQ
- Stands for Awesome Games Done Quick. Originally called Classic Games Done Quick (CGDQ), This marathon is usually held at the start of each year and runs for a week straight (most typically starting the first or second week of Jan running Sunday to Sunday).
SGDQ - Stands for Summer Games Done Quick. This marathon is usually held at the start of most peoples summers/end of exam time for schools. (most typically a week either at the end of June or start of July, again, running Sunday to Sunday).
Last years, AGDQ (2021) had the fastest raise of 1 MILLION dollars donated out of ANY GDQ event in history.It also ended raising a total of - $2,776,053 dollars. So THIS! is the goal to beat this year!
The current all time recorded raised during a GDQ event is is - **$3,164,002 dollars!**Which was done during the last IN PERSON event - AGDQ 2020.
In total, GDQ have raised for charities since it begun over - $31.4 MILLION dollars.
So come on over and enjoy it with us! I'll try my best as I do each year to post record or standout games, amounts raised and any more information I get during the events!*

games I'm looking forward to:
  • DEATHLOOP
  • Psychonauts 2
  • Super Mario Galaxy
  • Hitman: Codename 47
  • Nier: Automata
  • Returnal (!!!)
  • We Love Katamari
  • GeoGuessr
  • Risk of Rain 2
  • Stardew Valley

these are just some of them, it's a loaded list this year

but honestly the best runs are always the ones I have no idea about that end up being incredible/funny/skilled/crazy glitches

it's a good variety imo ... there's always a fair bit of obscure stuff I don't care about, and I don't really like a lot of the stuff that most people wait for (like Sonic, donkey Kong, mega man, Metroid runs)

Usually fun to watch. I don’t generally watch live tho; I pick and choose off YouTube
depends, I like to watch at night falling asleep.

and when you watch live you can catch some random game you find out is cool with good commentary (like right now with Deaths Door)
