It's hard to believe, but we're already reaching the halfway point for this year's Awesome Games Done Quick. The best speedrunners in the world are continuing their journey with seven straight days of speedrunning action. They're playing through some of the best games of the past and present in front of a worldwide audience on Twitch.
Awesome Games Done Quick 2022 is raising money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation. This is already proving to be one of GDQ's best events to date, as runners have already raised over $700,000 in just three days. Shacknews will be watching all week and we'll make sure to check in with the daily schedule each day this week, while also spotlighting noteworthy runs worth following.
Before we get to the schedule, let's look at a highlight from Day 3. THIS IS MY STORE!

9:11AM - Pokemon Crystal Key Item Randomizer
If there's a category that has breathed new life into classic speedruns, it's been the addition of randomizer hacks. They've done wonders, especially, for Nintendo's classic library of titles. That includes the Pokemon series, so we'll see how three runners do with an item randomizer in Pokemon Crystal.
4:25PM - Bonus Game 4: Rocket League
We won't lie. We're curious to see this. Please donate towards this incentive, because honestly... we don't even know what this is, but we're excited to find out.
10:46PM - The Awful Games Done Quick block
Wednesday night welcomes an AGDQ staple. It's the Awful Games Done Quick block, where runners come in and blaze through some of the worst games ever to grace the screen. What better way to start it off than with another CD-i Zelda anti-classic, as Zeldathon veteran Douggernaught takes players on a tour through the worst of Hyrule. Keep the stream running all night to discover horrible games that you may never have known even exist.
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.
