Speedrunners do some crazy things in order to skip levels and invoke glitches. In the first virtual reality speedrun in Games Done Quick history, runner Buffet_Time literally crawls on his hands and knees to shave precious minutes off his time playing Half-Life: Alyx.
Normally I find watching the runs during Games Done Quick marathons relaxing. There was nothing relaxing about Gusto’s Wednesday playthrough of bullet-hell shooter Mushihimesama Futari on ultra difficulty. I spent the entire run on the edge of my seat, anxious and agitated.
