Fly me away on the wings of an angel.

The Speedrun reddit is just vile. I used to lurk it because I wanted to keep up with speedruns more than twice a year but it's just, all that. All exactly that. I didn't really get the vibe there's a lot of actual speedrunners there, it all felt like it was where stream monsters went to spew bullshit

These events aren't perfect by any stretch and the event organizers don't always make the right call, but at the same time I don't really know what those people want out of GDQ

God this Skyrim run owns bowns though. I love how the skips keep escalating in how inscrutable they are

The same thing they want out of GamerGate and all that jazz. Their community has become mainstream-ish, it turns out that the non-lovely people coming in want a non-lovely community, and because there are enough non-lovely people present now, they can actually impose their will to some extent. So those of "the old guard" who liked it are now angry that their childish antics and exclusionary behaviour are no longer the norm.

And yeah, Skyrim run is amazing. I will abstain from spoiling too much, but:
"YOU HIT THE WRONG DRAGON"

e: and the very next run is the amazing personal GOTY Hollow Knight. This GDQ is off to a great start.
