Favorite Games

Chrono Trigger, Earthbound, Super Mario Kart

Why I'm doing this:

I've donated to Le Bonheur Children's Hospital in Memphis, Tennessee through Child's Play for years. Giving kids something to take their minds off being in the hospital seems like an amazingly important cause to me and I want to raise as much money as possible for it. Three straight days of video games seems like the least we can do to help!

Favorite Games

Super Mario World, Zombies Ate My Neighbors

Why I'm doing this:

s a man obsessed with video games for over 20 years, it was amazing to see what Child's Play was able to do in such a short period of time. It made me even more proud to consider myself a part of this group. However, reading just a few testimonials on the Child's Play website makes me even more proud to be a part of this event.

I'm not a player I just candy crush a lot.

Favorite Games

I was a Sega kid so I binged on Sunset Riders, TMNT: Hyperstone Heist, and NBA Jam.

Why I'm doing this:

I recently learned that liking statuses on Facebook doesn't mean medical care for children in need so I'm seeking to atone for those past sins.

Favorite Games

Donkey Kong Country, Super Punch Out!!, Double Dragon

Why I'm doing this:

The Honor, the Glory, the "Why the F!@& Not?" factor. Also, kids need happiness, lets do this.

Favorite Games

Super Metroid, Final Fantasy III, Chrono Trigger, Mario Kart

Why I'm doing this:

Twenty or so years ago, I got a Super NES for Christmas. That was the best Christmas ever - heck, it still is! Hasn't been topped yet. I can't wait to relive some of that sweetness while helping to raise more than double last year's total for Child's Play!

Favorite Games

Earthbound, Final Fantasy III/VI, Super Metroid, Chrono Trigger

Why I'm doing this:

I've donated in the past to Children's Memorial Hospital in Chicago. I like helping kids in need and I like classic SNES games. It's a perfect opportunity to do both at the same time.

Favorite Games

Final Fantasy 3. (Don't give me this "FF6 shit. You didn't play FF6 unless you grew up in Japan."

Why I'm doing this:

Because I have a soul? The US gaming industry takes in $10 billion each year. We happily shell out 60 bucks for CoD, GTA V, or whatever's next. And that's great, because these games entertain us, they engage our minds, and they give us a great social outlet. That's been true for me since I was 5 years old playing Super Mario on my neighbor's NES (he always got to be Mario). It was true when I played hundreds of hours of 4 player Smash Bros. in college, and it's still true now. So supporting Child's Play's mission to help SICK KIDS find that same joy? It's an easy thing to do.

Chrono Trigger, Secret of Mana, Kirby's Dream Course

Why I'm doing this:

Helping kids is awesome and this gives me an excuse to set aside some time each year to obsess about Chrono Trigger.
