ā€œA speedrun is a play-through of a whole video game with the intention of completing it as fast as possible; the objective is to obtain a personal best time. Our esports team speedrunners are very specialized gamers who promote community and digital literacy by teaching the science behind the playing of video games,ā€ said Ruben Caputo, Esports General Manager and Academic Advisor at CSUDH.
