Summer Games Done Quick 2020 continues, but it all comes to a close tonight. It's been an incredible party this year, a testament to Games Done Quick rolling with the most unanticipated of circumstances. This year, the team and the world's top speedrunners were forced to go online, but they still moved forward with their mission to raise money for charity. Today marks the end of seven days of speedrunning action, with runners blazing through the top games of the past and present for a worldwide audience on Twitch.

Summer Games Done Quick was originally supposed to come to you from Bloomington, MN. However, the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic led to the physical event being canceled. Instead, everybody has been going online. This year's event will raise money for Doctors Without Borders and the runners have raised over $1.1 million with less than 24 hours remaining.

Let's take a look at a highlight from Day 6. What else could we possibly put in this slot other than that Pump It Up! showcase?

Summer Games Done Quick 2020 Online: Day 7 schedule

Here's the full schedule for Day 7, taken from the Games Done Quick website, along with a handful of runs to check out. (Times are subject to change.)

11:42 PM Finale The End Tech Crew 10:00

8:50AM - Super Metroid

It isn't Games Done Quick without Super Metroid. It's as simple as that. It's not the main event draw that it used to be, but Super Metroid remains one of the greatest games of all time and remains a whole lot of fun to watch. Compared to Awesome Games Done Quick, the degree of difficulty on this will be significantly lower. However, it will be a 100% run, so if you've ever wanted to see the game in its entirety, carve out some time on Saturday morning for this.

12:58PM - Super Smash Bros. 64

Blindfold runs are incredible to watch. We've had a couple of them already here at SGDQ, but Super Smash Bros. 64 will be a fascinating one to watch. If you've never see the Break the Targets mode done blindfolded, you'll want to check this out and it won't eat up your afternoon. We had a chance to talk to Bubzia last week, so check out our interview.

3:12PM - Bloodborne

We started the week with Soulsborne, we're about to end the week with Soulsborne. Bloodborne is the second-to-last game of the week and the evolution of Bloodborne runs have been a lot of fun to witness. Ahady will be ready to take on all bosses. If you want to learn more about his preparation for this run, be sure to check out our recent interview.


Summer Games Done Quick 2020 Online wraps up tonight! For more, check out the Games Done Quick website and be sure to watch all of the action from Twitch.

Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

        Super Metroid is always my favorite run of the event, and I'd say a top 3 video game for me. I set an alarm to make sure I wouldn't miss it.

      TroZ my friend, have you been keeping/working on a list of your favorite or must-see runs? I’ve been so busy this week for various reasons, and I’ve watched a pathetically small number of runs.

      • reply
        August 22, 2020 7:48 PM

        I don't have a list currently, but let me put together one now:

        First, look at this reddit post and the post it links to: https://www.reddit.com/r/speedrun/comments/ies4qi/saturdays_0822_best_runs_sgdq_2020/

        The runs that I think were good:
        Pump It Up!
        Crypt of the NecroDancer: AMPLIFIED
        The Shmup block (Touhou 09.5 - Shoot the Bullet, Ketsui: Kizuna Jigoku Tachi, DoDonPachi Saidaioujou) (didn't see the first one, but heard it was good).
        Baba Is You (also didn't see the, but it got raves)
        Half-Life: Alyx - first VR game at GDQ
        DOOM Eternal
        Night Trap Blindfolded (and the silly block starting from there to Billy Hatcher and the Giant Egg)
        Trackmania Nations Forever
        The first Person puzzle block (Portal, Portal 2, The Talos Principle, Superliminal)
        The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt
        Shovel Knight: King of Cards

        But if you are familiar with a game, it's speedrun is a lot more entertaining, so if you see a game you know in the schedule, give it a watch.

          Talos Principle was a good run.
          Super Mario Odyssey was a good run.

          Then again, those are the only two I've had a chance to watch a bit of so far.
