We have now raised more money this marathon than all of our 11 previous marathons combined, which as the topic title states is $32,469.62!

Amazing, every donator is incredible, and I'd like to thank everyone so much for this. Better yet, we've still got about 3 days to go! <3

The Final Fantasy Marathon has been the biggest success.

I wonder how future marathons will be after this one.

We're this successful BECAUSE it's Final Fantasy, and because we've got such dedicated gamers, the commentators, and of course, the viewers. Good job everyone! :D

Final Fantasy made Square successful(and saved the company) and Final Fantasy made The Speed Gamers even more successful.

It's a sign.

Final Fantasy is a tremendous series alone with amazing storyline and has so much character work that should inspire other developers to but more effort into. The amount of attention this event has gotten will definitely make the final fantasy series more popular and hopefully developers pick up on it. Regardless, fantastic work to everyone who donated, promoted, and especially TSG!

8 hours later... It's at $33,893.08.

Somehow I have a feeling that the goals will be considerably higher for future marathons.

Depends. Seeing how this marathon is longer, and others would be cut back down to 72hrs. Unless people donate like it's their job. :P

Congrats TSG. :D You guys still find a way to surprise me.

this is amazing, as was said, TSG was on the news, we were promoted on several very popular sites, and i have no doubt well reach, if not break the 50,000$ goal, its just awesome to think the equivalent of a year and a half's worth of marathons have been equaled in just one...

i need to remind everyone, that one of the reasons the donations are so high, is because its a week long marathon, somehow i don't think well reach 50k in a 72 hour marathon... but nonetheless, i think this is a great milestone for the SpeedGamers and everything they stand for, keep up the awesome work everyone!

:shock: that was a longer post then expected

A ton of thanks needs to go to the people who got us on HUGE sites like joystick, MMO-Champion, and World of raids, being put on the two biggest WoW news sites was huge help to the cause.

Oprah may not notice us yet! but soon her stage will be our playground!

$50,000 mark might be possible with many websites posting the speedgamers on their front pages. This is awesome Allisbrawl.com just posted TSG on their front page today! _awesome_

Last time I checked, it was around 42k.
All I can say is...Wow! This is the most money I've ever seen raised during a video game marathon!
Words can't express how proud I am to be a member of such an awesome site. <3
Keep up the great work, guys.

Indeed, this is an amazing accomplishment. I can't believe we've raised this much money thus far. Right now, it looks like the donations are at $46,000. By the end of the marathon, we could very well meet our goal of $50,000. (which is more than DOUBLE the original goal of $20,000). You guys are awesome! Rock on, TSG!

Wow, $50,000, posted on important sites, and interviewed on CBS.
I regret not being able to watch more than the first couple days of this marathon, seems like things really picked up this time.

Awesome job, all of you guys.
Maybe this will put games back into a better light than they've been in the past few years.

By your next marathon, Bob's Game should pick up a bit. I'll be sure to put up the stream again.
