It’s the summertime counterpart to Awesome Games Done Quick, and will run from Sunday July 4 to Sunday July 11. It’s a week-long showcase of some of the world’s best speedrunners playing a huge list of games as fast as they possibly can, and explaining how they’re doing it as they do it. (That part is maybe more impressive to me than the actual speedrunning. Talking while gaming is harder than you might think, especially while streaming online!)
WHERE CAN I WATCH?
It’s completely free to watch, and you can do right here. And all of these runs help earn money for charity, so you should watch!

WAIT, THIS IS FOR CHARITY?
Yup! Summer Games Done Quickhelps raise money for Doctors Without Borders. In the past, the Games Done Quick events have raised millions of dollars. Back in January 2021, Awesome Games Done Quick raised over $2.5 million for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. In 2020, AGDQ raised, even more, $3.13 million. So yeah, this isn’t just a lot of fun to watch, but it’s all for a good cause.
There’s a schedule right here. It’s such a good schedule that it’ll auto-detect your timezone and show the times/dates accordingly. Be prepared for a long list of games. I almost guarantee at least one game on this big list will be something you are interested in.
