    I'm just trying to kinda talk about how they've banned any sort of jokes that could rile anyone up. I mean, saying "Shit" can get you in trouble.
    I think they want to keep it family-friendly to encourage donations



    There's 160k viewers right now after all

    Not swearing on a broadcast doesn't sound very unreasonable to me, in fact that's very common.
    Is that really much of a problem?
    It only bothers me in comparison to what the event used to be.

    Are the people on the sofa behind the peeps playing close friends with the speedrunner?

    That one guy who says he's disappointed in this guy with huge nerves playing psychonauts hurts the inner core of me.

    There were rules against swearing in the very first one too, but I'm guessing the problems are way beyond that by now.

    Makes some sense. But at the same time, there are going to be a runs of games like Doom 4 and Hitman.

    Couch commentary is runner's choice. So it's safe to assume that it's friendly banter.

    To attract more sponsors and retain an image that's open to all demographics.

    It does ruin some fun, but it makes total sense looking at the growth in public relations GDQ has to manage now.

    tbh if you're watching with kids and you see it's a GTA game then you can just not watch the stream for a bit, viewers with children watching donkey kong can't exactly expect the runner to shout "MAN FUCK THIS SHIT" suddenly during the run. i know there's a lot of people watching with kids so i really think it's fair especially when it's a charity event.

    it also maintains a more professional, respectable image for the entire organization.

    To discourage inappropriate discussions / insults, whatever. People say stupid things if they're left unfiltered, and that's probably best to be avoided for something as public as this.
    They COULD have different rules for every run, but it's simpler to just have one rule that extends throughout all the runs.

    It cracked me up when this guy running Psychonauts asked the couch if they had anything to say about the Brain Tumbler and then immediately them off right after one of them said yes.

    This guy is running the game pretty well but it is a bit awkward, especially the guy on the couch that sounds like Michael Cera. I love Psychonauts, though so that makes it still worth watching.

    I hate what AGDQ turned into, I was so excited to watch it back when it was first starting but now it just feels corporate and fake. I mean, the runs are real, but the reason it was great just isn't there anymore. It's more about entertaining games then entertaining runs and people now, it seems.
    Also cosmo is gone (for other reasons unrelated.)

    At least some runs are still enjoyable, but I don't keep the stream on all the time anymore.

    I've noticed it has been gaining more of a following at this point, but Psychonauts is honestly a criminally underrated game.

    Does the PC version of Psychonauts still have sound problems on some hardware randomly? It causes the game to stutter like crazy

    Every time there's a uniting moment with people applauding this runner, one of the people on the couch completely murders the mood with his dry ass commentary.

    Is that true, or speculation?

    I'd imagine it's kinda hard to set up, since there's only two 2D Mario titles actually being played, which means they probably don't have enough runners who could actually do it this time around.
