We took the opportunity to speak with a few volunteer members of Extra Life at Hartford Comic Con 2016. The general consensus between team members is that while you can play games for 24 hours straight by yourself, the motivation to help kids makes it worth the loss of sleep. Team member Harrison Guzman claimed, "I can do this for 24 hours WITHOUT helping Kids!"
Don't feel that you can make the 24 hour run yourself? Feel free to make a one time donation or fund the gamer of your choice. As a participating member of Extra life himself, Tim Vincens feels that there is no "better excuse to play games for 24 hours. Helping kids makes it worth the sleep deprivation."
We at Game Rampage always enjoy the streams of gamers supporting Extra Life, and you should too! If you do not have it in your schedule to watch others play video games, you can click here to donate directly to the hospital of your choice.
