We've seen a lot of Final Fantasy games represented at GDQ over the years. It's not often that we get to see Final Fantasy 13, which is already a decade old! Isn't that wild? The beginning of Lightning's saga is a great way to start the morning, so put this on in the background, enjoy this run, and reacquaint yourself with this forgotten gem in the series.

2:30PM - Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart

This year's AGDQ has featured a handful of 2021's top games and it's great to see Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart added to that list. A NG+ run means we'll be seeing some of the best weapons on display, so come enjoy this run through this PlayStation 5 hit.

5:22PM - Returnal

Speaking of PS5 hits and also speaking of 2021's top games, here's the Games Done Quick debut of Returnal. This proved to be one of the most challenging games of the last year, with players literally leaving corpses in their wake. Now let's watch cavecavecave make this one look easy.


Awesome Games Done Quick 2022 Online will take place from now through Saturday, January 15. For more, check out the Games Done Quick website and be sure to come back all week to Shacknews for more on this week's marathon.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?
