Awesome Games Done Quick 2019 raises record-breaking $2.395 million


Normally, the first week or two of January is a relatively dry period of the year for video game releases.


Even with the advent of early-year release stuffing as we’ve seen in recent years, quality titles are few and far between.


Awesome Games Done Quick 2019, a speedrunning marathon that started this past Sunday , did the trick by bringing dozens of amazing runs to entertain us for a good cause.


The weeklong marathon closed out on the mainstay Super Metroid run, showing something we haven’t seen at a Games Done Quick event in the past three years.


It’s one of the hardest challenges in speedrunning, as evidenced by the deaths involved and the constant damage ticks en route to getting rid of Ridley.


However, with people throwing their wallets towards saving or killing the animals (the frames won out) and Twitch subscription money going completely to charity, the final total climbed past anything we’ve seen before.
