It's worth watching for moments like these.


Olympic athletes have diets and train really hard.
Skateboarders eat candy, talk shit, and drink arizona iced teas.

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)
