How 'charity speedrunning' made gaming the new telethon

Found this interesting article on gaming speedrunners helping charities.

" As long as video games have been around, people have tried to complete them as quickly as possible.

Known as speedrunning, gamers worldwide stream and upload videos in the hope of breaking the top records, with the most popular videos viewed tens of millions of times.

Over the past 10 years, speedrunning has become increasingly intertwined with donations as streamers often host charity streams as a way to give back to the community."

till corporate marketing and sales takes over. I really hope this niche stays the same over the years. I love what AGDQ has done these last years.

Not the case for music festivals for instance, that started with amateur management and objectives and now are only temporary musical malls.
