Some people play video games to relax or have fun. Others try to go as fast as humanly possible, spending hours and hours finding tricks and battling against the clock of their favourite games.
In this, our third episode of Kotaku Compete — which you can watch above — we dig into the speedrunning community and take a trip to Summer Games Done Quick, a bi-annual marathon where people blaze through games for charity.
Kotaku Compete is an original series created and produced by Kotaku and Gawker Media's video team. Production funding was provided by Honey Nut Cheerios.
