Summer Games Done Quick starts tomorrow, and ahead of the event, we brought in some runners to showcase their skill, explain the event, and give us some tips.

If you're unfamiliar, Games Done Quick is an annual marathon where speed runners gather in a single location, speedrun an impressive library of games at impressive speeds, stream the whole thing, and do it all in the name of raising money for charities Doctors Without Borders and the Prevent Cancer Foundation. The stream starts tomorrow, July 26 and goes until August 1, and you can watch it here.

This year, the event is happening in Game Informer's backyard, Minneapolis, Minnesota, so we invited runners to come in and play a few games. You can check out Gunstar Heroes below with our own Benjamin Reeves and Tim Turi, and Games Done Quick's Tony Ogbot and Chris Grant.
