Summer Games Done Quick raises $3m for Doctors Without Borders

An inmedical success.

Summer Games Done Quick has raised a record-breaking $3m for its chosen charity, Doctors Without Borders.

That total is over $500k higher than GDQ's previous record of $2.4m for Prevent Cancer Foundation, set earlier this year.

This year's Summer Games Done Quick ran from 23rd-30th June in Minneapolis, with more than 180 speed-runs completed. Alongside your usual Marios and Zeldas were runs of this year's Resident Evil 2 remake, Crash Bandicoot: N. Sane Trilogy and the brilliant Tetris Effect.

Fancy catching up on some streams? You can watch them all now via the Games Done Quick YouTube channel - and donations are still being accepted, too.
