Awesome Games Done Quick 2015 started today

AGDQ is an annual charity gaming event that supports the Prevent Cancer Foundation. The event is a week long 24-hour/day streaming of video game speedrunning.

It can be a little odd at times (there's a few really odd people), but it's also very entertaining and they raise a lot of money (they passed the $1 million mark last year).

Some of the runs I suggest watching from a quick glance at the schedule are Diddy Kong Racing by 0xwas, I Wanna Be The Boshy by Witwix, and a blindfolded run of the child dungeons from Ocarina of Time by Runnerguy.

That's a pretty blanket statement.

Here's some links to some solid runs:

Witwix - I Wanna Be The Boshy (My favorite run so far -- he's a really entertaining streamer)

Capndrake - Shovelknight (Two of the developers called in during the run)

PJ & MechaRichter - Battleblock Theater (Just a generally entertaining run -- these guys usually play a game together every year and they have great chemistry)

Various people - A couple Tetris games (The nerdiest of the nerds but holy fuck... my mind couldn't even process what was going on while they're playing)

Various people - A block of mario games (Lost Levels, Mario 3, Super Mario World, Kaizo Mario World -- Kaizo is a fan-made version of Super Mario World that is really difficult and entertaining)

And, if you want a semi-cringe, there was a proposal at the end of Mischief Makers. Honestly, it really wasn't too bad.

I want to add the Ninja Gaiden relay race as well. Just watched it and it was incredible. Six people, two teams, racing through Ninja Gaiden 1-3.

that animal crossing run had no right being as entertaining as I thought it was

I only caught the end where he dropped into the debug town. Is it worth a watch?

To be honest, the vast majority of it is just him doing an item glitch repeatedly. I wouldn't blame you for thinking it was dull, but I did enjoy it. That said, if you watch it, I'd probably suggest skimming through it as opposed to watching it all.

Sometimes great stuff happens in the practice room:

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzYjvK9yrio" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tzYjvK9yrio</a>

This video gets me everytime. The explosion of excitement, the stone cold expression on 0xwas's face.

It has been confirmed to be the perfect run. It physically cannot be done any faster than that. To get that time, you have to alternate A and B buttons 30 times per second.
