How to watch the Awesome Games Done Quick 2022 speedrunning marathon

Awesome Games Done Quick (AGDQ), an annual weeklong celebration of speedrunning, is upon us. Between January 9 and 16, you can watch one veteran gamer after another race through their favorite titles to show off their skills and hopefully break some world records.

For the second consecutive year, AGDQ is being held as a virtual event due to safety concerns from COVID-19. Unfortunately, runners don’t have a raucous personal audience to cheer them on. Still, you can watch the entire event live on Twitch, via the Games Done Quick channel (or the embed below), starting at noon ET Sunday. If you can’t watch the action while it’s happening, you can catch up on YouTube later.

The program is full of some fascinating sounding runs. On Wednesday, two GeoGuessr players will be looking for a perfect score by finding the exact locations of random Google Street View images. This Saturday, a runner named Mitchriz will try to beat Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, a typically difficult game from FromSoftware, as quickly as possible – and they’ll be blindfolded. Recent games appearing for the first time on AGDQ include Deathloop, Death’s Door, Kena: Bridge of Spirits, Ratchet & Clank: Rift Apart, Returnal, and Psychonauts 2.

The Games Done Quick organization has raised millions for charities over the past decade. AGDQ is one of the two main events the group hosts each year, with Summer Games Done Quick usually taking place in June or July.
