Every year, the speedrunning community blesses us with an amazing gathering of the biggest and best talents from around their little community, who come together to joke around and speedrun games live, all for the purpose of raising money for charity. This year is no different, as Awesome Games Done Quick – which just wrapped up – was working to raise money for the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

And this year, they absolutely killed it. It seems every year they manage to raise more money than the last, but this year they didn’t just break their old record, they shattered it. By the time the show was over, 54,160 people managed to donate a grand total of $3,133,898.56 to charity: that’s over $700,000 more than they made last year, and the first time AGDQ managed to break the 3-million-dollar mark.

That is… pretty amazing.

The stream might be over, but you can still watch all the VODs if you want, which I highly recommend you do. It’s always entertaining to see how these people crush, break, and dismantle your favorite games. And sometimes the feats of endurance they have to pull to make it happen – like playing Final Fantasy 8 non-stop for over nine hours – is damn, damn impressive.

Still, good news. Today’s just a feel-good day, eh?
