Update: What an amazing ride. The stream is now over, but we cannot thank you enough for everybody that donated. You can watch the archive on Twitch by clicking here, or for the full YouTube version below.

Autumn is a special time for the gaming community, where an event known as Extra Life brings together gamers everywhere to raise money for children's hospitals. This year Game Informer is live streaming dozens of fun games for 25 hours from 8am to 8am CT November 5th-6th on our Twitch and Youtube channels to raise money for Gillette Children's Specialty Healthcare.

We have a mountain of gaming items to auction off, including limited edition systems, figurines, controllers, and full games. We're also going to be playing some really great games and throwing in shocking surprises and revelations along the way. If you'd like to help raise some money for the kids, you can head to our donation page and also make yourself eligible for some awesome rewards.
