Summer Games Done Quick 2021 has concluded and despite being an entirely online event, it has attracted a huge number of viewers and the amount of money raised for charity is closing in to pre-Covid times.
SGDQ 2021 has concluded with $2,897,704 raised for Doctors Without Borders. Technically, this is just $2,296 short of $2.9 million but it is the right way to round it up.
While we're on the subject of details with numbers, this one proved to be much more successful than the first SGDQ since the Coronavirus pandemic hit. SGDQ 2020 raised $2,345,785 which was a significant drop from the SGDQ before it, which still holds the record at $3.04 million raised for charity. SGDQ 2021 didn't manage to beat it either but it is significantly closer and it's quite possible that SGDQ next year will achieve the feat.
With the numbers out of the way, let's get into the speed runs and the ones that took the viewers breath away. The first among them has to be the Ghostrunner speed run that makes it looks like the game is being played at twice the speed you would normally see. It was already a fast-paced action game but after watching Blaidan go about it, I can only think about everything I'm doing wrong each run.
Less frantic but also extremely quick was the Dragon Age: Inquisition run by Lemuura. Have you ever completed the game in just over 39 minutes? Probably not but would you like to see it done? Here you go.
Maybe you like the odd runs better, like going pacifist in Ninja Gaiden?
These three are just the tip of the iceberg of amazing runs in various games and you can check them all out on the VoD thread on Reddit .
