I always like Games finished quickly, which hosts two speed race marathons each year that raise millions of dollars for charity. From July 4 to 11, it’s time for the Done Quick Summer Games, which will collect donations for Doctors Without Borders.
I will try to watch as many speedruns as possible, but always watch the full schedule and take note of the races I’m most excited for. And now I’m going to share these choices with you.

I actually just plugged my old GameCube back in and F-Zero GX was the first game I played. I miss that racing series, but at least its high-speed GameCube opus still holds up. Glad to see an expert show the fastest way to go through this game’s creative journeys.

Crash Bandicoot 4 is one of my favorite games from last year, but I haven’t watched a speedrun yet. I’ve seen a lot of races for old Crash games, and they’ve always been awesome. These games require a precise platform which can be tricky for a normal game. I can’t imagine how difficult the experience becomes when you try to beat Crash 4 as quickly as possible.

I am an ardent Defender Sonic 3D Blast. Of course, it’s not as good as the Sonic Genesis trilogy, but this isometric platformer still has a lot of charm and an amazing soundtrack. And it won’t be an ordinary speedrun, as these two will be playing this single player game together using the same controller.

RPGs are always interesting speedruns, as these are games that you would normally expect to take dozens of hours to beat. However, this race should only last around 90 minutes. Viewers will also be able to vote by making a donation to choose which of the three houses these two will play in.

3D Mario games make the best speedruns, and this will be the first time we’ll see Bowser’s Fury during a GDQ event. It will be fun to watch this player use Mario’s stunts to reach shortcuts and navigate Bower’s open Fury map. It could be the highlight of the whole event.
