For those of you who may not know, SGDQ (Summer Games Done Quick) is a big annual speedrunning event. It started on Sunday and will be running through the rest of the week. The best speedrunners from around the world come together to show off their 1337 skillz. If you like games at all, or even if you don't, I'd highly recommend you check it out. And it's also a charity event, so consider donating!

So, which runs have you watched so far? How awesome were they? Which runs are you planning on watching and would recommend others watch?

I've looked at their schedule and already picked out the runs I really want to see. They're mostly games I've played, really enjoyed, and feel I'd most appreciate and understand seeing be brutalized. And then there's the TASBot block, none of the games in which I've played, but TASes are usually awesome to watch, especially when commentated.
  • The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess (completed)
  • Halo 3
  • The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time
  • Fallout 3
  • Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion
  • Super Mario Sunshine
  • TASBot plays Mega Man
  • TASBot plays Sonic Advance
  • TASBot plays Ikaruga
  • Super Mario 64

If anyone is interested in watching the stream with a much less crazy chat, and possibly with others from the community (like me!), I'll be hosting the stream on my twitch channel.

By the way, if you're picking games out of the schedule that you want to watch ahead of time, be warned that blocks often run long and push the whole schedule back a bit over time. So make sure to check back with the schedule when the block you want to see is closer to get a better estimate of when it will begin.
I've been watching basically just to have something on. Most of the runs I care about at all are at inconvenient times, so I'll probably watch them after the fact.
Event ended yesterday; the fundraising total was over 1 million dollars.

Here's a set of links to Twitch VODs for all the runs. I'm currently finding the blindfolded pokemon blue race amusing.
