Last week took place the AGDQ: unfolded, this acronym means Awesome Games Done Quick Where Excellent Games Completed Quickly. All week, many players have been streaming their content live on games they know inside out…even with their eyes.. This is the case Mitchriz, a speedrunner : this is the name given to players adept at speed run, the practice of completing a game as quickly as possible. If it remains a success in itself to complete Sekiro, moreover in two hours, Mitchriz did it blindfolded. A breathtaking performance, especially since Sekiro bases its gameplay on parries and a simple mistake can quickly lead to death. To achieve such a feat, Mitchriz performs training where he counts the seconds to know precisely when to jump, parry or use the grappling hook.
If this feat happens during the AGDQ, it is not the first time that he has achieved it: it was in July 2023 that he became the first player to finish Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice blindfolded. An attempt that will have lasted almost five hours, and which makes it easier to measure the prowess of Mitchriz: of course, it is more difficult to play without seeing what is happening on the screen. It is therefore necessary to count the seconds that pass, while having lost the notion of passing time.
A feat highlighted during the AGDQ, a charity event for Prevent Cancer, a foundation to fund research and carry out prevention around these diseases. This edition broke its own records, announces the official page of the event on Twitter:

#AGDQ2023 raised a total of 3,416,729 dollars (3 million euros, editor’s note) for @preventcancer. This is officially the highest amount raised in @GamesDoneQuick history. Another world record!
A sum raised thanks to the amazing performances of Metchriz on Sekiro, as well as the 139 other performances performed. For example, The Game Awards Game of the Year It Takes Two was completed in 1 hour and 45 minutes, Deathloop in 26 minutes, and The Legend of Zelda: Majora’s Mask in less than 39 minutes.
