This year’s Awesome Games Done Quick has just kicked off with lots of players and video games helping out. The said charity drive has just started on its first day and has already planned to cover tons of video game titles. Aside from that, the said event has already earned a huge amount of donations.
Awesome Games Done Quick started the charity event just this Jan. 8 and it will run until Jan. 15 this year. This year’s AGDQ covered, of course, the awesome video games of all time and the organizers have scheduled 17 video game titles for the first day alone. They started off with the addictive “Ape Escape 2” and finished off with “Salt and Sanctuary”.
“Borderlands 2”, “The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time 3D", “Mega Man”, “Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty”, “Devil May Cry”, and “Silent Hill 4: The Room” were few of the several video games they have just completed. The second day of the event has more than 30 video games scheduled and it began with “Magic Sword”. Today’s roster is filled with classic video games that include “Pokemon Emerald”, “Ninja Gaiden”, and “LittleBigPlanet 3”. The last video game scheduled for Jan. 9 is “Super Smash Bros. Melee”.
The video games they have scheduled must be completed in the conditions they have put down on the table, which includes a level of difficulty and the percentage of completion. Awesome Games Done Quick has set up a live coverage of the charity through their official Twitch link and they are currently playing the classic “Sega Bass Fishing” video game released for Dreamcast in 1999. The drive has already reached $185,000 worth of donations. The event’s beneficiary this year is the Prevent Cancer Foundation.
Aside from the speed gaming, the charity has set out to attract donors by putting up special events such as winning a PlayStation 4 Pro and VR bundle that includes 10 free games wherein those who donate at least $75 will have the chance to be part of the raffle for the said prize. Those who donate at least $50 will be entitled to raffle entry to earn the “Hail to the King” banner.
