Games Done Quick, a charity event where speed runners play video games as fast as possible to raise money. They host 2 events a year and raise millions of dollars for charities such as Médecins Sans Frontières and the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

You can filter to specific years, video games, charities and much much more. Let me know what insights you find in the comments below.

It’s hours of fun watching people complete video games from your childhood in insanely fast times, and it’s all for a good cause!
