Summer Games Done Quick (opens in new tab) wrapped up its annual speedrunning extravaganza for charity over the weekend with a heroic half-hour run through Elden Ring and more than $3 million raised for Doctors Without Borders, an international organization that delivers emergency medical aid to people impacted by wars, natural disasters, and epidemics.

The final figure clocked in at an astounding $3,016,200, Games Done Quick said on Twitter. That’s a good jump over the past couple of years, which saw a decrease in fundraising after going online-only because of the Covid-19 pandemic, but not the first time the summer event has broken the $3 million mark: That happened in 2019, which was also the last time the event was held in-person prior to its return to a live audience this year. It also brings the total amount of money raised for charities since the debut of Games Done Quick in 2010 to more than $40 million.

Summer Games Done Quick was broadcast live over Twitch (opens in new tab), and all runs from the event are also now available on YouTube (opens in new tab). 

Got 23 minutes for Metal Gear?

Or you could watch this Doom Eternal run and learn what a “yeet blast” is.

If retro is more your thing, here’s Powerslave Exhumed in under 30 minutes.

Say hello to the vanguard of your destruction in less time than it takes to watch a Marvel movie.

Here’s The Pathless, one of my favorite games of recent years, done from start to finish in under two hours.

And as promised, Elden Ring in a half-hour. (Slightly more than that—33:58 to be precise.)

This particular journey through the Lands Between is remarkable to watch. It’s an any% run, meaning that the only thing that matters is getting from start to finish as quickly as possible—and that means taking advantage of terrain, glitches, and general in-game funkiness in some very creative ways. For a more comprehensive tour of the game, including a brutal two-second beatdown of Godrick (which gets plenty funky in its own right), there’s also a two-hour All Remembrances run (opens in new tab).)

The next Games Done Quick event will see the return of Flame Fatales (opens in new tab), an annual all-women speedrunning showcase set to run August 21-27. This year’s Flame Fatales will be raising money for Malala Fund, which supports education for girls around the world.
