Another GDQ event is in the books, which means that it’s time to take a look back at AGDQ 2022 and pick out some of the best speedruns we saw this past week. Considering that the event is literally over a hundred hours of content, there’s no way anyone could sit down and watch them all so we’re picking out some of our favorite highlights.
Metal Gear Solid 2: Substance (Tanker Blindfolded)
This one was just a short bonus game section, but runner ApacheSmash completely knocked it out of the park by showcasing his mastery of the game and the amount of precision required to make it through this section without looking at the screen at all.
The tanker section has it all: tight, interesting levels that you can stealth your way through, short action sequences, and puzzle-like segments where you have to shoot a specific point in order to progress. By making use of audio cues and memorizing precise button presses and movements, Apache was able to get through the entire section flawlessly with only one hiccup in the middle.
It’s an impressive run that’s definitely worth watching.
