New, comments

The third annual Awesome Games Done Quick marathon, a speed-running event for charity hosted by Speed Demos Archive, is quickly approaching the end of its seven-day run with more than $327,000 raised.

Over the course of the week, a team of gamers played through more than 120 titles, including games such as Banjo-Kazooie, Skyrim, Ecco the Dolphin, Left 4 Dead, Ninja Gaiden and more. Viewers can bid on items, make donations or leave comments for a chance of having them read on-air. All donations will go to the Prevent Cancer Foundation.

Today's agenda, which you can view here, includes speed runs of The Legend of Zelda: The Wind Waker, Super Mario 64, Die Hard, Final Fantasy IX and more.

The Awesome Games Done Quick marathon comes to an end today around 11 p.m. ET. Donations can be made via the marathon's main page; the group's current fundraising goal is set at $400,000.
