A group of gamers has announced that they will play a marathon of Fallout 3 in order to raise money for the charity Childs Play. Here's the press release:

On February 17th, a group of gamers will be playing through the popular video game "Fallout 3" for over sixty hours, all while collecting donations for Child's Play Charity, giving entertainment and more importantly, hope, to those in children's hospitals.

Child's Play (www.childsplaycharity.org)

is a charity "dedicated to improving the lives of children in hospitals around the world through the kindness and generosity of the video game community and the power of play". Over almost a decade, it has raised over ten million dollars for those children, donations which Cameron D. Hosner, President & CEO of the Children’s Hospital of Michigan, says will "support seriously-ill children in hospitals by distracting them from their illnesses, and help them cope with fear, anxiety, and boredom”.

Over a period of almost two years, this marathon team has raised over two thousand dollars throughout three marathons. We have been able to do this both by showcasing the game and through audience interaction. The viewers of the marathon aren't just viewers, they are participants, and valued members of the team.

The event begins at www.fallout3marathon.com at February 17th at 5:00 PM Pacific, and will stretch on for over sixty hours.

I guess they don't use New Vegas to spare the poor audience from actually having to make a decision?

I guess they don't. But they are using Fallout 3 . Up your comprehension champ. Your grammar is perfect but not for what was stated in the OP.

Don't be too callous when you fire back at me for your own fault.

Plus wouldn't make sense to have a marathon for a game that's actually good. Anyone can play a good game for hours on end. But doing that with a bad game for charity is really something. Look at LRR did with Desert Bus.
