We're approaching charity gaming marathon season, in which kind-hearted folks spend their hard-earned vacation days playing a series of video games without respite or pause. The Mario Marathon guys
are set to kick off their franchise playthrough in a little under two weeks -- before that, though, the prolific, altruistic team at TheSpeedGamers is attempting
a similar feat: They're currently playing through every single Mario
game while collecting donations for ACT Today, a group which helps families pay for the care and treatment of their autistic children.
Maybe we weren't explicit enough in the preceding paragraph: They are playing every Mario
game. Every one of them. At the time of this writing, they're playing Mario Kart 64
. Monday morning, they're going to play Hotel Mario
. When given the choice between going big or going home, the folks at TheSpeedGamers clearly chose the former.
