Video games for charity. Who'd a thunk?
The Summer Games Done Quick speedrunning event has drawn to a close, and it managed to raise over $1.2 million for charity.
As you can see at the event's Twitter page, the grand total was $1,230,852 for Doctors Without Borders . And even though the official final tally may alter over the next few days, event organizers say the total will be "awe-inspiring." The subject of this speedrunning fun was the classic Chrono Trigger and you can check out some of the footage at the Games Done Quick YouTube channel . I'm not into speedrunning but some of these players are just supremely dedicated and skilled. That's kinda "awe-inspiring" in and of itself.
Man, it's a great concept but if there's one game you should absolutely savor, it's Chrono Trigger .
