It takes a pretty goddamn clever mind to dissect/optimize a game and discover game-breaking glitches. A large portion of these people have day jobs as programmers and other tech stuff, they're not just basement dwelling nerds who play games 24/7. A lot of them make a supplemental income off of streaming these games, too.

They raised $1.2 million last week for cancer research. What did you do?

The glitchy and super-quick ones and TASs can be fun to watch, and I've seen longer ones over a period of several days, but I just don't get watching regular speedrunning. I can see watching them for tips, but it just seems pretty arduous. I dunno. I'm just not committed to full-on nerdery, I guess.

Wasn't expecting them to raise so much. Looked slow in the beginning.

Had a killer time catching a LOT of this event. Lucky to have a job where I can play this type of stuff in the background while I work.

As awesome as it was, I am also looking forward to other streams being back now that the event's over. Some of my favorite channels on Twitch tend to die down during GDQs... a good amount of them are there participating!

I watched the Tony Hawk's Underground speed run randomly like a week ago, the speedrun community doesn't care much for Bob Burnquist.

I hope it goes without saying that I've had this shit blastin' almost constantly all week. While I drive around at work all day I've had it playin' on my phone, and I've been passing out to it on my laptop at home. So good! They exceeded the 1million mark earlier tonight.

I miss YSG (might be a bit before you guys' time... I've been on the GDQ tip since like 2012 or 2013)

This year has been abit weird. Well the whole company or organisation

Number of bans of popular runners
Chat only being sub mode
Cracking down on language
Bans on people asking regular questions and emotes
The runners themselves
Lower donations

But its still a good watch and for a good cause

Mega Man and Mega Man X races were the best so far

I've only been watching for a couple years now, and I can already tell it's getting more soccer mom'd.

The bad games block is always my favourite. I'm sad johncarls wasn't here this year, he's a cutie.

Do any of you watch any streaming and/or speedrunning outside of this?

i only watch some game developer stuff live, otherwise I just youtube speedruns and such.

 i'm curious what you speedrun and if you're willing to share your youtube/twitch channel?  i get it if you don't want to.i probably won't ever watch you stream but am just curious
