If you think that all gamers are slackers and stoners, then you clearly haven't heard of 'Desert Bus for Hope.' The yearly telethon/gameathon raises money for the video game industry charity Child's Play.

The comedy troupe Loading Ready Run plays Desert Bus as long as the donations keep coming in. Playing a game for days on end may not sound too bad until you realize what Desert Bus is. The object of the game is to drive a bus to a destination... for eight hours.
