Today is Terrible, So Let's Distract Ourselves By Watching People Play Video Games Really Fast

By Jason Schreier on at

If you’re feeling miserable after a week full of horrifying news, you’re not alone. Why not distract yourself a little by watching people play video games?

The Summer Games Done Quick speedrunning marathon has been going on since Sunday, and it’s been a lot of fun to watch. The quality of both play and commentary has been consistently great, and I imagine that’ll continue throughout today (as we enter the big Mario and Mega Man blocks) and tomorrow (thanks to TASbot, FFVI, and Super Metroid). Just stay away from Twitch chat.

You can catch up on old runs via GDQ’s YouTube channel, or watch the marathon live right here:
