The Extra Life 24-hour Game Streaming Marathon!

Extra Life is all about having an awesome time and helping sick kids in the process, and this year Gamers Association is getting in on the action!

For those unaware, this annual charity event involves 24 hours of straight gaming without relief. From 8:00 AM Central on Saturday, October 20th to 8:00 the following Sunday morning, I will be planted in place, playing some of my favorite titles and probably gorging on greasy pizza. To reward the day-long devotion, anyone may donate to my Extra Life page, here. Each and every contribution is channeled directly to my local Children’s Miracle Network hospital, benefitting those inside so they can cure up quick and get back to the fantastic gaming fun we take for granted.

As an additional incentive beyond the beautiful priceless power of healing, anyone who chips in can choose a game from my listed collection below for me to play for a full hour. What’s more, I’ll be live streaming the entire event through, sharing my sure-to-be-awful constant commentary and interacting with everyone who stops by. Without proper capture equipment, I’m unfortunately limited to an amateur webcam stream. Still, something small is always better than nothing at all, right?

Behold! The all-inclusive list of every game you may force upon me with any donated amount! If you see something super exciting, send me that way and we can game together for a while next weekend. Just be sure to state your suggestion somewhere so I know what to dive into, messaging me through Twitter, on the Extra Life page, or in the comments at the end of this article.

Although I included much of my PC library within this list, know that the notorious nature of my laptop makes me too afraid to even attempt a simultaneous stream while gaming. Feel free to pick from that pool, but know that I will be temporarily stopping my stream to avoid a spontaneous explosion of outdated hardware.

[An asterisk (*) indicates a game I have never played. It’s presence in the PC list will likely shock you.]
