Where to watch AGDQ 2022
For 2022, Awesome Games Done Quick is being held entirely online on Twitch. It was a tough choice for the annual charity marathon but was ultimately decided on “for the health & safety of staff and participants”.
AGDQ has its very own Twitch channel that viewers can tune into to catch this year’s video game speed demons.
When does AGDQ 2022 begin?
As mentioned before, the event officially starts on January 9 at 12 pm ET. However, there is a pre-show beginning at 11.30 am ET. Ringing in 2022’s AGDQ event is feasel, spikevegeta, JHobz, Kungfufruitcup, Keizaron, with host PurpleGhostKasper.
To start Awesome Games Done Quick is a heavy-hitter: Nioh 2, on PS5, Any% Featherless speedrun, with streamer AxelSanGo, sharp at 12 pm ET.
Also of note is Any% Deathloop (PC), Silver Lining Any% Marvel’s Spider-Man Remastered (PS5), and a Fresh File Any% speedrun in Returnal (PS5). Those events are set to start at 4.39 pm ET on January 9, 8.19 pm ET on January 9, and 8.10 pm ET on January 11, respectively.
However, many classics have made their way to the schedule. One of the earliest speedruns is an Any% speedrun for Donkey Kong Country 2: Diddy’s Kong Quest (SNES). One of the strangest viewers should stick around for is the Any% speedrun of EarthBound (SNES).
