And with a new year comes a new marathon of video game speedrunning, featuring some of the most talented and impressive players in the industry taking on games new and old to show off their dedication to the craft. Plus, you get the opportunity to donate to some worthwhile charities and even get a chance to win some swag in the process!
Games Done Quick, a grassroots organization known for its speedrunning charity events, will be hosting Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ) 2020 at the DoubleTree Hilton at the Entrance to Universal Orlando in Orlando this weekend.
