Awesome Games Done Quick and its aptly named summer event sibling, Summer Games Done Quick, is a week-long streaming marathon where speedrunners showcase their fastest times to finish the race and raise money for worthy charities. This year’s AGDQ featured some really interesting gaming exhibits, such as Yu-Gi-Oh! Forbidden Memories, blindfolded running Sekiro, Eternal Darkness (first aired on AGDQ) and Final Fantasy VII Remake Intergrade. The show ends with the 1 hour 21 minute Metal Gear Solid “All Bosses” playthrough.View any running activity from the past week Game Complete Quick YouTube Page.
