Summer Games Done Quick 2022 is almost at $1 million raised for Doctors Without Borders. Check out today's full schedule and watch it all here.

Summer Games Done Quick 2022 is moving into its fifth day, having crossed the halfway point of its week long journey for charity. This year's event marks GDQ's return to live events, the first time since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic back in 2020. The world's top speedrunners have come together in beautiful Minnesota to sprint through the top games of yesterday, today, and (sometimes even) tomorrow in front of a worldwide audience on Twitch.

Summer Games Done Quick 2022 is back in Bloomington, Minnesota. Many of this year's runners are on-hand for live runs, though a few are checking in virtually from their home spaces. This year's event is raising money for Doctors Without Borders. After four days, the runners have raised over $875,000. Shacknews will be watching all week and we'll make sure to bring you the daily schedule each day. Plus, we'll highlight the noteworthy runs worth watching.

Before we get to the schedule, let's look at a highlight from Day 4, where we see that setbacks happen to even the best speedrunners.

You can watch all of the action in the embed below!

We don't often see a lot of Monster Hunter representation at GDQ, especially such a timely instance of it. On the day of the Sunbreak expansion's release, JalBagel will look to hunt down Magnamalo in the core Monster Hunter Rise game. Take a break from exploring the new Sunbreak expansion and check out some cool strats in this rarely-seen run.

7:13PM - StepMania/NotITG

StepMania/NotITG (Not In The Groove) was such a big hit during January's Awesome Games Done Quick event that SpootyBiscuit has returned, this time in front of a live audience. This time, viewers are being treated to a special Couples Exhibition alongside WinDEU. If this is anything like the AGDQ show, this is going to be a can't-miss display of rhythm prowess.

1:09AM - DOOM Eternal

We're Shacknews. We're not about to miss a Doom run of any kind. That's why we're excited to watch MuteD6 complete a 100% Nightmare Restricted run in just around two hours. We love seeing GDQ rip and tear until it is done and this is one run that's going to be worth staying up late for.


Summer Games Done Quick 2022 Online continues from now through Saturday, July 2. 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.

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

      Jeebus, they're so backlogged that the Elden Ring All Rememberances Run is scheduled to begin at 12:30AM (PDT), Sunday morning.

      I feel bad, but I kind of hope some of the bonus game incentives aren't met so that Elden Ring will be sooner (obviously, I don't want this if it reduces the amount raised for MSF).

        I mean there's been more than a few games going over estimates this year along with the mix of in person and remote. I kinda wish they'd get back to the CORE of *GDQ as some of these are just becoming game just being completed within X amount of hours and not like a lot of skips/tricks etc.

      • reply
        June 30, 2022 8:27 PM

        Certain runs are remote, in particular these rhythm games as it would be difficult to move and set up these arcade machines at the event.
        A few other runners from other countries are also doing remote runs, but 90% of the runs are at the event live.

          Sure I get that, I asked because the prior time I tuned in tonight it was a seated remote gamer. I just vastly prefer the in person stuff.
