Summer Games Done Quick 2023: Watch Day 5 here

Summer Games Done Quick is more than halfway to $1 million in four days. We continue on with the Day 5 schedule.


The week is already halfway over and so is Summer Games Done Quick. After a brief January return to the online space, this year's SGDQ is back to live speedrunning and the mission remains the same. The top runners in the world will look to run through some of the most recognizable games of the past and present for a worldwide audience on Twitch and do it for charity.

Summer Games Done Quick 2023 has come to Minneapolis, 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 $655,000. 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. Check out this amazing skip during the Sonic Adventure run!

It's been a while since viewers have been able to scratch their GTA itch from Games Done Quick. San Andreas, in particular, still stands out as one of the best entries in the series, so why not give it a look and relive CJ's wild times on the streets? It's a long 4+ hour run, but we'll definitely be on the lookout for the mission where he has to follow the train.

2:33PM - Mega Man 6

While there's no dedicated Mega Man block this year, the Mega Man 6 run will make up for it with a novel "2 player, 1 controller" run. These are already some of the most challenging platformers on the NES, so let's watch both of these runners cooperate in an effort to defeat the nefarious Dr. Wily once more.

6:38PM - Pizza Tower

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?
