With the fourth just around the corner I find myself sitting in the basement watching some speedruns from Summer Games Done Quick which started a few hours ago. For those of you who haven’t watched a Games Done Quick event prior to this one they are a pure show of skill in your favorite games. This speed running marathon takes donations for Doctors Without Borders which is an amazing organization that helps countries in crisis in all kinds of ways. The money also goes toward challenges(Donation Incentives) which add additional aspects to the speedruns such as killing or saving the animals at the end of metroid.
I personally love any of the Zelda and Mario speedruns which are slated later this week. However there are a lot of other games that I am really excited to see! Here is a list of some of my favorite speedruns and there times for EST. To see your local Summer Games Done Quick times check them here!

Twitch Chat really makes Games Done Quick an amazing event to be a part of. After seeing an impossible looking glitch or trick you may take a look at chat and see something like this. You might also take a look at twitch chat after a major time loss and see a completely different screen including emotes such as FailFish and NotLikeThis.
I hope you guys check out Summer Games Done Quick which can be found here or it will be the top stream on Twitch for the next week and then some. What speedruns are you guys looking forward too seeing and what other speedruns should I check out?
