Now this is simply brilliant. Remember the Connecticut incident and how everyone blamed videogames for that act? Well okay, most of you already know that this whole connection between the Connecticut massacre and videogames was a piele of crap, but it’s time to show to your families, friends, and all those media hypocrites that gamers are way ahead of them, organizing things that they would not ever dare attempting.
Awesome Games Done Quick 2013 is a speedrun marathon that is organized by Speed Demos Archive. This marathon lasts 7 days and has already offered us some amazing speedruns of various games. During this marathon, gamers (and pretty much everyone watching the stream) can donate money to the Prevent Cancer Foundation, our partner for this event. And we are happy to report that AGDQ has managed to raise $100K in its first three days.
We highly recommend sharing this news. In fact, we strongly suggest watching this marathon as there are still some amazing games that will be put to the test. Batman: Arkham City and Dark Souls are two of them. Then we have Donkey Kong Country 1-2, God of War 2, Devil May Cry 3, Doom I and II… hell, even Starcraft 2 and Goldeneye 007 are in there.
John is the founder and Editor in Chief at DSOGaming. He is a PC gaming fan and highly supports the modding and indie communities. Before creating DSOGaming, John worked on numerous gaming websites. While he is a die-hard PC gamer, his gaming roots can be found on consoles. John loved - and still does - the 16-bit consoles, and considers SNES to be one of the best consoles. Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2. John has also written a higher degree thesis on the "The Evolution of PC graphics cards."
