Awesome Games Done Quick sets new record, by raising $3.1 million for the Prevent Cancer Foundation

Awesome Games Done Quick has launched last week its annual speedrunning marathon. Today, this marathon came to the end and AGDQ has set a new record by raising more than $3.1 million for the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

In this year’s event, AGDQ had speedruns for three of the best 2019 games; Control, Devil May Cry 5, Sekiro and The Legend of Zelda: Link’s Awakening 2019 Remake. Alongside these games, there were also some classic speedruns like the NES versions of Mega Man, Donkey Kong Country 3 and Sonic 3 & Knuckles.

I personally enjoyed the Control speedrun which was full of glitches and out of bounds tricks. The team-speedrun for Super Mario Maker 2 was also amazing, as was the DOOM 2016 speedrun. Moreover, the “2 players 1 controller blindfolded” speedrun for “Mike Tyson’s Punch-Out!!” was amazing.

You can find the entire speedrun marathon event below (in case you missed any of the aforementioned speedruns).

Enjoy and congrats to AGDQ!

Still, the PC platform won him over consoles. That was mainly due to 3DFX and its iconic dedicated 3D accelerator graphics card, Voodoo 2.
