Worst. Marathon. Ever.

Worst. Marathon. Ever.

The Worst. Marathon. Ever. was a 60-hour gaming marathon for charity: water. The game list included a collection of some of the worst games released in history, such as Superman 64, Big Rigs, Gods and Generals, and ET on Atari. Only about half of the games were actually completed (many of them were outright impossible to complete), and much frustration and rage quitting was observed. View page »

Game Over School

Game Over School

Game Over School was GameToAid's first marathon, benefiting World Youth International. We figured—since we just graduated from school, why not give some less fortunate kids the chance to have the same opportunity? The marathon used a two-team race format. Battling through a selection of classics such as The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time and Banjo-Kazooie, it was Team Bacon that eventually came out on top of Team Megatron to claim victory.
