I don’t care what any news anchor or church group has to say, because gamers can be the most generous and giving people in the world. Especially when there’s a bargain to be had in the process. All kidding aside, the latest Humble Bundle that featured EA Origin games has just proven this, making quite a few millions in the process for charity.
The Humble Origin Bundle has closed with 2.1+ mil bundles sold & $10.5+ mil in sales! Thanks for helping make Humble Bundle history!

The EA-backed bundle made more than $10.5 million, with the majority of that cash going to charities, human rights organisations, the San Francisco AIDS foundation and the American Red Cross according to Polygon.
And it’s hard not to see why this bundle sold well. There were some fantastic games on offer, with the bundle offering Dead Space, Dead Space 3, Crysis 2 Maximum Edition, Burnout Paradise: The Ultimate Box, Medal of Honor and Mirror’s Edge. For whichever price you wanted. Hell, pay a little bit extra, and you got Battlefield 3 and The Sims 3. And then it got even better with the addition of Populous and Command & Conquer: Red Alert 3 – Uprising.
So well done EA, that’s how you get some brownie points on your side.
