Three Australian gamers had a dream last year, one that may have filled them with murderous gamer rage, for a good cause, during the maiden Lame Game Marathon.
The idea: play the worst games ever made for 24 hours straight in the name of charity.
Brothers Dan and James Camilleri along with friend Mark Dawes are returning this year with The Lame Game Marathon 2, seeking to raise money for UNICEF's Sahel Emergency Appeal, assisting those in need in West Africa.
Over $5,000 was raised last year, when the boys played through the likes of Superman 64, Pimp My Ride, Limbo
of the Lost and Naughty Bear for a painstaking 24 hours to support UNHCR's East Africa Appeal.
Infamously terrible games being played this year across PC, PS1 and Wii include: Toilet Tycoon, Man vs Wild: The Game, Mary-Kate & Ashley: Magical Mystery Mall, Street Cleaning Simulator and, much to Heller's disgust, Bubsy 3D.
Donations can be made on Everyday Hero and the entire event will be live streamed for 24 hours on September 22.
More information and a full list of games can be found on their website, where they are also taking suggestions for the fifth game to be played on each of the three platforms. May we suggest Imagine: Party Babyz?
