It's one of my favorite events every year, and it's definitely one of my wife's least favorite. It's Summer Games Done Quick (SGDQ 2018) and it's a 7-day long video game marathon that benefits Doctor's Without Borders.

If you love watching other people play video games.  This marathon is for you.  If you love old school games you played during your childhood.  This marathon is for you.  And if you love "speedrunning", this marathon is definitely for you!

"Speedrunning" is competitive gaming, where players try to beat a game as fast as they can.  These players literally break the game a lot of times and know every trick there is about the game they are playing.

I love watching SGDQ, and it's winter counterpart Awesome Games Done Quick, and I always make a list of the games I want to check out during the marathon.  So, here is my list of the games I want to watch this week.  (You can check out the entire schedule here.)
