Many speedruns start today in Summer Games Done Quick
One of the best speedrun events in gaming kicks off today, as Summer Games Done Quick 2022 runs from Sunday, June 26 through Sunday, July 3. If you’re not familiar, this is the summer version of charity GDQ’s awesome big party, where dozens of the best and most entertaining speedrunners dedicate themselves to a good cause.
Where can you watch SGDQ? Just on the Games Done Quick Twitch channel. (opens in a new tab)
This year’s SGDQ schedule—which you can find in full here (opens in a new tab)– has as many notable PC entries as you might expect. Here on the first day there is already a Mass Effect race, for example. Proceeds from donations to the SGDQ will go to Doctors Without Bordersan important resource for people around the world in a time of continuous active warfare.
Otherwise, I will not miss a few others:

- KAMIKO and Half-Life: Alyx on Tuesdays
- The Lord of the Rings: The Return of the King, PowerSlave Exhumed, TUNIC and Minecraft: Java Edition Wednesday

- Doom Eternal on Nightmare, Control and Satisfactory Friday
- Left 4 Dead 2 and Superhot VR Saturday
- And not just one, but two Elden Ring races on Sunday: first an All Remembrances race, then an Any% race.
