This week saw the return of Summer Games Done Quick 2018, which means a week of games being cleared as quickly as possible by the best players in the world, all the time while millions of dollars are donated to worthy causes like Doctor's Withouts Borders or The Prevent Cancer Foundation.

I've been following this event every year since 2014, when I found out about it through a recommendation to watch a Yoshi's Island speedrun from 2013.

The story and history of the strategies that have developed over the years for each game can be interesting in itself. I can heartily recommend the Youtube channel Summong Salt, which has long series of videos detailing the dedication of the people who have brought the times of the games down to their current, sometimes unbelievable levels.

Speedruns of racing games may not sound like the most interesting kind of run, but Summoning Salt proves us wrong with this video.
