    I've been watching this on and off for about 15 hours. It's awesome.

    I think they did manage to make their goal in the end. I watched for a little bit yesterday, right about as they ended gold. Looked like fun, but I think it would be hard to play for days on end without any rest.

    You must be thinking of the guys that attempted to catch 491 pokemon in 72 hours. These guys are just playing to see who could be the first to complete their set of games (Red, Gold, and Ruby; and Blue, Silver, and Sapphire).

    Edit: And by complete, I'm assuming they mean beat the elite four.
