I for one hate rockband/guitar hero marathons, They're fun games to play but watching them is like setting up a playlist and watching the visualizer. Not to mention every one is either doing, or has done this marathon. But clearly that's only my opinion because there are people who love watching others play the games.

A Devil May cry marathon may be interesting to watch if you add in the first two games.

Those people are idiots. Please do anything, ANYTHING but a Guitar Hero and Rock Band marathon. It's one thing to watch your friends who are in the room play Guitar Hero, but watching someone playing it while streaming online is like watching a feed of Wii Sports, except even worse-- it just makes you wonder why you aren't playing it instead of watching someone else do it online.

Do you have any classic consoles? The best idea I saw you had listed were Halo or LEGO, although you're going to have a much more limited audience for Halo.

I think that doing the Lego series would be cool. Its something that no one has done before. It would be interesting, but since the Lego games aren't too long you would probably have to get basically everything or do another game after.

Well, one group did LEGO, but it was a fairly small turnout unfortunately.

I think a fallout marathon would be cool.

Since the main misconception of Fallout is that there are only 3 games...I will list what could be played.

Fallout 1 (win/mac), Fallout 2 (win/mac), Fallout 3 (win/ps3/360), Fallout: Tactics (win), Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel (ps2/xbox)

Then as a surprise whip out Fallout: Warfare.

They all seem like good ideas. I don't think anyone has seen a marathon with some of the games you mentioned, like Mirror's Edge, Time Shift, or The Darkness.

It would be cool to see a marathon with lots of free running style games, like Mirror's Edge, Prince of Persia series, Assassin's Creed, etc.
