Three married guys in their 30s have just started play games this morning for the whole weekend. What did their  wives say about this? Well, you think you may know what happened, however, there is something very meaningful behind this that made their spouses change their minds (again). Yes, they did this last year and are going at it once more to play Mario games for a greater cause.

Brian, Chris and John are playing videogames in order to raise money for Child’s Play Charity. The main goals of Child’s Play are to keep children entertained by playing videogames during their stay at hospitals and to end the old belief that games can make people become anti-social and violent.

One of the gamers, Brian, said during an interview: “If I were to play video games for a few hours before we started this my wife [would say] ‘Well, you’re wasting time.’ But then you’re doing it for charity and it’s ‘Yeah, you can play all weekend, have your 30 year old friends over for a sleepover.'”

So far, they have finished Super Mario Bros., and will be playing all main Mario games on their Wii.

If you want to watch them play and donate some money to help kids in need, visit the following sites for more info: Mario Marathon [http://www.mariomarathon.com] & Child’s Play [http://www.childsplaycharity.org].

Tres hombres casados en los 30 acaban de comenzar a jugar esta mañana por todo el fin de semana. ¿Qué es lo que sus esposas dijeron sobre esto? Bueno, ustedes quizás piensen que saben lo que ocurrió, sin embargo, hay algo muy significativo que hizo que sus cónyuges cambien de parecer (de nuevo). Sí, lo hicieron el año pasado y van a hacer una vez más para jugar juegos de Mario para una causa mayor.

Brian, Chris y Juan están jugando videojuegos con el fin de recaudar dinero para Child’s Play Charity. Los objetivos principales de Child’s Play son para mantener a los niños entretenidos jugando videojuegos durante su estancia en los hospitales y poner fin a la antigua creencia de que los juegos pueden convertir a la gente en personas antisociales y violentas.

Uno de los jugadores, Brian, dijo durante una entrevista: “Si yo fuera a jugar juegos de vídeo por unas cuantas horas antes de que empezáramos esto, mi esposa [diría]” Bueno, estás perdiendo el tiempo”. Pero  lo estás haciendo de caridad y que es “Sí, ustedes pueden jugar todo el fin de semana, (y) que tus amigos de 30 años se queden aquí a pasar la noche”.

Hasta ahora, ellos han terminado Super Mario Bros., y estarán jugado todos los principales juegos de Mario en su Wii.
