This past weekend marked the completion of Summer Games Done Quick 2022, often known as SGDQ 2022, a week-long event that featured 24-hour video game speed runs from June 26 through July 3. This was done in favor of raising money for charity, as is customary for Games Done Quick events. Summer Games Done Quick 2022 ultimately earned $3.01 million for Doctors Without Borders.
More specifically, at the event last week, Summer Games Done Quick 2022 raised a total of $3,016,200 for Doctors Without Borders. With this addition, Games Done Quick has now successfully funded more than $40 million overall since 2010. Summer Games Done Quick 2022 was the first Games Done Quick event to be held in person since Awesome Games Dock Quick 2022 in Orlando, and it also raised a considerable amount of money for charity.

The different runs from Summer Games Done Quick 2022 have been archived on the Games Done Quick YouTube channel in case you were to miss the event live. The Elden Ring speedrun by HYP3RSOMNIAC, the Metroid Dread speedrun by kekumanshoyu, and the OMORI speedrun by star smiley are some of the highlights from the competition. Since there are a week’s worth of speed runs to look at, it’s difficult to make a mistake if you decide to only glance through the ones for the video games you are most interested in.
As mentioned above, $3.01 million was donated to Doctors Without Borders as a result of Summer Games Done Quick 2022. Additionally, it marked the return of Games Done Quick in person following Awesome Games Done Quick 202. The Flame Fatales speedrunning event, an all-women speedrunning showcase, will be the following speedrunning event from Games Done Quick from August 21 through August 27.
