What started as a humble event in a guy's basement has exploded into a show that has thousands of in-person attendees and a high of more than 236,000 concurrent viewers on Twitch.
This year marks the 10th anniversary for AGDQ, which has grown from raising just $10,000 in its first year to getting over $1 million in donations for the last seven years in a row.

The event's previous record for donations came during 2019's Summer Games Done Quick event, where the community was able to raise just over $3 million.

If you missed out on the event and want to catch up on featured runs, you can find them over on the AGDQ official YouTube channel.
Some of the incentives for the event this year included $60,000 for the runner of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time to demonstrate all the glitches and ways to bypass huge sections of the game not normally included in a "no glitch" speedrun. That event is set to take place from June 21-28, while Awesome Games Done Quick 2021 will run from an undetermined location from January 3-10. Because like they do every year, the GDQ team waited to announce how much money was going to be put into the pool by the event's sponsors, bits, subscriptions and other revenue made throughout the week.
