As always, Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ) takes place in January. The annual event is about playing through games as quickly as possible without the help of third-party programs and explaining what is happening on the screen. Since the event also has to be planned, there is of course one in advance List of games that are played there. This list has now been published.
In addition to classics such as The Legend of Zelda series and various Megaman and Mario titles, which most people immediately think of when they hear the word "Speedrun", there is also a breath of fresh air Event. Titles are shown that have not yet been seen within the event or that are being played in a new speedrun category. Because not only the game itself is crucial, but also how you play it. The common categories include: "Any%", means all glitches are allowed. "100%", all bonuses must be unlocked and "Glitchless", everything is tried that is intended by the game developer.
The games that will be represented next year include, among many others: Hades (buy now )(Category: with all weapons), Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice (Category: Any%) and a complete Diablo 3 co-op run to ease the pain the Waiting for Diablo 4 caused.
Like the last event – Summer Games Done Quick, SGD for short – this event will unfortunately only take place online due to COVID-19 and not in front of a live audience. But the organization behind the event will not be disturbed by this, after all, it is for a good cause. Because the donations that AGDQ receives are used for the fight against cancer and go to the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
