Video games have long become a massive entertainment, followed with great pleasure by millions of people around the world. But if you still think video games are “a useless activity for children,” then maybe the next news will convince you: in the annual marathon for the fast passage of video games Awesome Games Done Quick, simple gamers could collect for charity more than $ 2 million.
Awesome Games Done Quick is held not for the first time, and in 2018 it was decided to send collected funds to fight cancer. A huge amount of 2.2 million dollars was collected thanks to donations from players around the world. During the action of the action, a lot of streams were held for the rapid and sometimes non-standard passage of both the classics of video games and modern projects. For example, for the rapid passage of The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild was collected more than 250 thousand US dollars. Of the interesting moments is also worth noting the destruction of all Dark Souls bosses in 90 minutes and speed pass with blindfolded level on a flying motorcycle from Battle Toads. During the action, accounts were opened 24 hours a day, and anyone could transfer any amount that he deemed necessary.
The organizers are still surprised by such a big excitement around their event and they say that not a cent of the collected money will be lost, and all of them will be transferred to the account of the organization Prevent Cancer Foundation, which treats and supports the development of new methods for the therapy of cancer.
