Him introducing himself saying, "Hey all, my name is Tomatoangus. The G is silent," was great though!

I know you're joking.

Comment: I only see (recognize) one trans/pronoun runner this time (running friday). I could have missed them all (sleep) but I haven't seen any trans/pronoun runners this time yet.

Event: Provide identification in a completely non-intrusive way.

Anti-SJW's: oh my god, *** SJW's shoving their agenda down my throat!
Video games. That's what the event is about, you haven't mentioned it.
The actual original thing GDQ was built on was a bunch of friends playing videogames together for charity. With a 50:50 game:runner/couch screen share.

It's literally never been JUST about the video games.
I guess making sense wasn't one of your new year resolutions.

See the problem? Video games. That's all that you should spew, video games. Video games. Speed run of what? Video games. What are we watching? Video games. What are we here for? Video games.

Video, ***, games.

except that the people DOING the runs have always been an important part of this, otherwise they'd have only a screen showing said video games, zero commentary, zero mention of who is running what, etc. I have no understanding why everyone's panties are in a bunch over something that is unobtrusive and likely to counter with "it doesn't affect me." if it truly matters so little, there wouldn't be so much bitching.
You have no understanding because you still haven't bothered reading the post you quoted. The answer is inside, somewhere, probably well hidden (try the spoiler, it might be in there, too).

oh I read your post. obviously, you did not read mine, as it takes yours into account, and offers a rebuttal. again, if VIDEO GAMES was all that mattered, they would not tell you who was running. if VIDEO GAMES was all that mattered there would be no commentary. if VIDEO GAMES was all that mattered there would have been zero focus on the runners from the start. so, what we can infer here, is that a preferred pronouns section that takes up almost no screen real estate really bothers you that much because VIDEO GAMES.
And guess what activity allows them to exist, at all? Hint: it's mentioned somewhere on this page.

If you take the video games out of the equation, it's nothing but a ragtag of literally whos for 99% of the people who watch/donate to GDQ events.

So yeah, video games, stay free.

Which are still there. Have been there. And will remain there.

So, everything's fine and select people are getting triggered over various arrangements of 7-9 additional letters and symbols on screen, in the specific section of the screen allotted to identify the runner/couch/host.

Y'know, some of the people making the event possible.

Yo. That Tyson's Punchout was bananas.

2 Players. 1 Controller. Both blindfolded. Absolutely perfect, no unintentional damage.

Don't really care about Terraria but after that is a Zelda relay race! Not sure if it's Zelda I II and ALTTP but it's dope either way. 9 runners, 3:30, 3 way race of all 3 games?

FF8 after that

Zelda run was pretty great save for Green Mario deciding to throw in the towel or something (it looked like he was potentially blaming the controller, but tough to say at this point). for what was to be his supposed final run of the game, that's a really shitty way to go out.

Agreed on the Punch-Out run. That's gonna be damn near impossible to top!

Just caught the tail end of the FF8 run.

Punch Out was indeed fantastic.
I love Terraria, and I would have enjoyed seeing more of a run, and I'm split on what we did see.
On one hand, the runner's positivity in the face of "This has never happened before" was great, as was the way he got the audience involved.
On the other hand, he was clearly too used to Twitch streaming as opposed to speedrunning, especially for a GDQ environment. Guy, I get it that you are excited, but when something neat happens don't put the keyboard/mouse down, don't turn and wave at the audience, you have a game to speedrun. Also, he talked so much they barely had any room to read donations. Part of this would have been solved by him having an actual couch panel supporting him, but still. Eyes on the Moon Lord prize, man.

Thursday bump;

Awful block is infact awful, and that's why it's awesome. Something doesn't have to be good to be fun.
