Getting accepted into Games Done Quick with Grand Theft Auto V would be a dream - half because it's unlikely, and half because it'd be awesome to attend the Superbowl of Speedrunning.
Games Done Quick is a week-long marathon held twice a year that raises millions of dollars while attendees do speedruns 24/7. The runs are special in that they are explained in a way that they go into detail, but also are general enough that anyone with basic videogame knowledge can follow along - kind of like my Casual vs Speedrun in GTAV series, so basically that done live.
This run was pretty good - 2.5 minutes off world record at the end. I was on world record pace for the first 4-5 hours, just the last few missions had some mistakes and bad luck, but its fine, there is a great chance I get world record back - Burhac and I both have huge potential to shave 2-3 minutes off of our current runs.
GTA V has never been to GDQ - and probably won't be still. It's unlikely they will accept this game due to language, violence, or who knows what else. And that's okay - they've had war games and other GTAs before, but if they don't want GTAV, thats their choice. I would be mad at myself if I at least didn't try submitting a run, and I figured a few people might enjoy it even if its not an official run - and maybe making it public and the video doing well could help get it approved. We have the ability to mod the game to remove voicelines/graphics/scenes that GDQ may not want displayed and have offered to do as such to get the run accepted. As well, GDQ does often have long games (usually RPGs) but the length may be an issue as well.
I'm aware the audio may desync a bit near the end of the video. I use a weird system for recording and it works mostly perfect... except after about 3-4 hours of streaming it starts to get off timing. I'm working on it but it uses network streams and just... is a mess. I need a capture card...
