Last week we had another speedrunning event – the European Speedrunner Assembly – this is very much a European Games Done Quick, but on a much smaller scale, exposure and budget. Every time I see this though it seems to be growing, it is only a matter of time until it is just as big as its American cousin – if not bigger…
Considering what it is though, ESA is an excellent event that is well worth watching! Like the GDQ it is a charity event and it provides a platform for awesome speedrunners for games you have loved, hated, didn’t know or forgot about their existence. I really love this event!
I have compiled the runs that I really enjoyed for you here; some of these were picked because they were hugely skillful, some are really entertaining, some are both and one is because the runner is Northern Irish – lets see if you can pick out which run is which!
Like our SGDQ post, if you have runs you really enjoyed, please link to them in the comments!
