Awesome Games Done Quick starts Sunday at 11am

The annual speedrunning event Awesome Games Done Quick begins Sunday, January 5th, at 11:00am. I love watching games I like being played all the way through in a reasonable time frame, though I do wish they would play them all normally and not go out of bounds and exploit bugs.

The complete schedule is here.

Twitch Link for the event.

And for you progressives out there, they have heard you! This year they will be listing the preferred pronouns of the commentators and the runners this year! He/Him/She/Her/It/Ze/who-the-fuck-cares-as-my-mental-well-being-is-not-tied-to-the-pronoun-someone-uses-when-addressing-me.

I am wondering if donations are going to be down this year due to injecting politics into this. They probably don't want money from people that oppose it, though. It's sad that people can be so selfish that their politics comes before charity. I really hope I am wrong as this is for charity, so I would be very happy to be mistaken, but I can't see this as anything other than a huge risk.

Leave politics out of gaming you idiots.

I will not be donating this year due to the political bullshit. I may try to find a charity that does mental health work and doesn't push for acceptance and mainstreaming of Gender Diaspora instead.

Honestly, getting offended by this bullshit (preferred nouns) just gives more attention and feeds into it.

If I call someone who looks like a guy by a male pronoun and they say use a female one or whatever, I'll just be like sure fine, I don't give a fuck. Yes I find it obnoxious, but just going on and arguing with them a.) gives them the attention they want and b.) just detracts from the other shit I'm interested in.

If you don't want politics in gaming (imho) make sure you're not part of the problem by playing into this shit. I understand anger when there is a push to make legal policy with this, but in a personal/social situation, why give a crap?

As if on cue! GDQ has issued a suspension of one of it's speedrunning partners, Luzbellheim, not for anything done or said during their run but for their politics in general as he supports Spain's Nationalist party "Vox" and makes fun of pronouns on his twitter bio.

Quote:
Shortly after completing his Final Fantasy VIII speed run for the Games Done Quick charity video game speed-running event, speedrunner Luzbelheim has been issued an 18-month submission ban due to his anti-feminist views and support of Spain’s Vox political party.

Viewers took issue with Luzbelheim before he began his run, particularly with the anti-feminist views espoused on his personal Twitter account, such as featuring the phrase “I hate feminazism” in his bio, retweeting anti-feminist memes, and and a tweet voicing his support of the economic policy of the far-right Vox political party.

The only thing these idiots accomplish is that it makes me want to vote hard right wing parties for the rest of my damn life. They can have it and ban around, we put one Trump after another in office. Fuck you.

Just saw this thread.

I wasnt into AGDQ from the start, saw their shit a mile away. But i do watch a few speedrunners. Arcus was one of them, followed him for a few years actually. Knew he was gay, its obvious, but a nice dude, kept his politics out of the stream.

He was doxxed, i run into his twitter account, the asshole is griping about 'misgendering' people. You lose me at that point. These people are off, which happens i get it, but its being legitimatized. The REAL problem is they are sucking in alot of angst ridden teenagers and even younger kids with them. And these kids are killing themselves...

PeteDorr was another one. I saw him streaming on a speedrun stream with he/him as his retarded pronoun gimmick. I unfollowed pete asap.

Stunted children with no ability to see what it is they are doing. I'm not enabling that shit.

And oh.

Arcus
https://www.arcusfoundation.org/

He lies to. He had said many times on stream he named himself after a modem. He's an activist.
