Charitable gaming group takes on 60 hours of the worst video games ever

charitable gaming group takes on 60 hours of the worst video games ever superman nintendo 64The charitable video game marathoners GameToAid are in the midst of a unique challenge: to play 60 consecutive hours of some of the worst titles in video gaming history. Any donations the group receives will be donated to charity:water, a nonprofit that helps bring clean drinking water to communities in developing nations. All 60 hours are being streamed live at GameToAid’s website.

GameToAid is comprised of four teenagers in Adelaide, Australia. The group selected thirteen titles which will be played continuously throughout the 60 hours. The dubious list includes:

  • Batman of the Future: Return of the Joker (Nintendo 64)
  • Power Rangers Lightspeed Rescue (Nintendo 64)
  • Charlie’s Angels (Playstation 2)
  • Superman 64 (Nintendo 64)
  • Big Rigs: Over the Road Racing (PC)
  • E.T. (Atari 2600)
  • Back to the Future (Nintendo Entertainment System)
  • Doctor Who: Return to Earth (Wii)
  • McFarlane’s Evil Prophecy (Playstation 2)
  • The Golden Compass (Xbox 360)
  • Shaq Fu (Super Nintendo)
  • Karate Kid (Nintendo Entertainment System)
  • Gods and Generals (PC)

Charitable gaming marathons have become popular in recent years. The site ExtraLives.org has hosted several marathons including a Legend of Zelda marathon to raise money for Free the Children and “The Rise and Fall of Sonic the Hedgehog” to raise money for charity:water.

GameToAid’s ongoing “Worst. Marathon. Ever.” may not be the first gaming marathon, but it is probably the most masochistic — we can attest that some of those titles are truly terrible. GameToAid is hoping to raise $10,000 before the marathon ends on Saturday. Donations of $5 or more will be entered in a raffle to win t-shirts or, perhaps, a copy of one of the video games.
