{{:marathons:307w1mx.png?600|Final Fantasy Marathon (July 2009) Blog Banner by Anatotitan}}\\ **The Final Fantasy Marathon (July 2009)** is the 12th marathon by TheSpeedGamers and the 8th for a charity. Many people have proclaimed that such a feat is impossible, however, TheSpeedGamers made a great effort and were close to success. The original goal was $20,000, however, when the goal was reached in 72 hours it was raised to $50,000. For this marathon, many [[community:user_groups:staff|staff members]] came to Texas to help with the marathon, including Gwellin, Localretard, and Baltes. TheSpeedGamers had multiple news appearances during this marathon. In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mIjTLbN9YHQ|one of these]], Rob was asked to describe the Final Fantasy series. His description given while lacking sleep and also playing a game went: "It's a fantasy world, where you have to save the world from being destroyed... pretty much."\\ [[http://wiki.thespeedgamers.com/_media/marathons:2009:bj747t.jpg|{{ :marathons:2009:bj747t.jpg?100|A picture of Guinness Book of World Gaming Records' article.}}]] \\ This marathon was published in the Guinness Book of World Gaming Records for the "Longest Relay on a Japanese RPG" record.\\ ^ Final Fantasy Marathon (July 2009)| | Date: July 17-24 | | Length: 168 Hours | | Charity: [[::organizations_and_charities#ACT|ACT Today]] | | Total: $50,734.63 | | [[http://www.flickr.com/photos/thespeedgamers/sets/72157621709755288/|Fan Art]] ---- ===Games Played:=== Final Fantasy I (Completed in 6 hours)\\ Final Fantasy II (Completed in 22 hours)\\ Final Fantasy III (Completed in 25 hours and 30 minutes)\\ Final Fantasy IV\\ Final Fantasy V\\ Final Fantasy VI (Completed in 6 hours and 20 minutes)\\ Final Fantasy VII (Completed in 24 hours)\\ Final Fantasy VII (Completed in 23 hours and 59 minutes)\\ Final Fantasy IX (Completed in 28 hours and 30 minutes)\\ Final Fantasy X\\ Final Fantasy XI\\ Final Fantasy XII\\ ===Players:=== Kilgard - Final Fantasy I\\ Localretard - Final Fantasy II\\ Cross-Warrior - Final Fantasy VI\\ Phil - Final Fantasy V\\ Gwellin - Final Fantasy III\\ Dustin - Final Fantasy VII\\ Daniel L. & others - Final Fantasy IX\\ Baltes - Final Fantasy VIII\\ Blackduck - Final Fantasy IV\\ Rob & others - Final Fantasy X\\ Britt & Chase - Final Fantasy XII\\ NobodyX - Final Fantasy XI\\ ===Commentary:=== Gwellin, Rob, Tyler, Britt, Chase, Rust, Ninboy, Dustin, Blackduck, Phil, Paul, Ferenc, Baltes, Local, Kristin, Stella, Oscar ==Associated Organizations:== [[::organizations_and_charities#Mana|Manapotions.com]] ==Community Jokes Spawned== **Gengar**\\ See [[community_jokes:memes:gengar|page]].\\ <BOOKMARK:bridge>**Move Bridge** ([[http://wiki.thespeedgamers.com/_media/community_jokes:tsg_marathon_specific_jokes:bridge.png|Image]])\\ While playing Final Fantasy VIII, Baltes was traveling in a hovering aquatic vehicle, when he noticed he needed to be on the other side of the bridge.
