A tribute to all who played in GamesRadar's 24 Hour Marathon

In case you missed the games, the tweets, the Ustream, and all around ridiculous badassery of GamesRadar’s Second Annual 24 Hour Gaming Marathon, this video recap’ll make you feel like a silly goose for not participating. To the proud many who joined in the shenanigans for the entire 24 hours, this video is our way of saying “Thank You!” Oh, and it just so happens to STAR YOU. The whole thing was a smashing success, not once did the fun subside, and the fact that more of you than we could ever even play hung in for so long made it the one of the most worthwhile things we’ve ever done on the site. To all of you: We seriously can’t thank you enough.

Music: “Another Winter” by Anamanaguchi from the Scott Pilgrim vs. the World: The Game Soundtrack. Finally available for purchase on Amazon!

I tried to thank as many of you as I could catalogue, so bear in mind that the people in the video are just the people I played at my desk. There are a great many of you who played as well, and I’m sorry we couldn’t get you all on camera. Here's to doing it all over again next year!

Here's more pics!

    Awesome stuff. Can't wait for the next one. You'd better be ready to play some Armored Core GR, ya hear?
  • secretsearcher - August 29, 2010 4:20 a.m.

    They needed to get some Smash Bros Brawl up in this place. If they had done something other than FPS and Street fighter I might have joined in. :/

    What. A. Night. I wasn't mentioned in the video, but I assure you I was there! I mostly played with Henry and Mike Grimm. I played with Chris once, never got a chance with Brett. My own fault, I should have friended some of the other GT's earlier. I resolve to play with Brett in the (very likely?) Reach marathon.

    The marathon was a lot of fun. I've been listening to tdar and visiting gamesradar for a while, but if it wasn't for the 24 hour marathon- I wouldn't have finally joined the forums. Thank you guys for caring about the community and actually having the balls to pull this off.
  • BearKiller - August 28, 2010 4:20 a.m.

    Thanks for the awesome gaming guys!
