5 Games You Didn't Know Had Surprising Amounts Of Star Power

GP: "The gaming world of today is vastly different from the gaming world I saw in my youth. When I was younger, you would hardly ever see a video game being mentioned in the media unless it was a news channel talking about how games will destroy children's lives.

That still happens, but videogames have become a much more mainstream hobby. Not only is it normal for big name actors or celebrities to talk about what games they like, they're even beginning to appear in games as well. Ellen Page in Beyond: Two Souls is the most recent example, but in no way was she the first." (Chronicles of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay, Culture, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Halo 2, Heavenly Sword, inFamous 2, Omikron The Nomad Soul, PC, PS3, Xbox, Xbox 360)

Ellen Page is actually in two games - Beyond: Two Souls and The Last of Us - with the latter just technically speaking of course and also players can't really control her character as it is an AI ( NaughtyDog may be denying the similarities or have even updated and given Ellie a much younger look but I'm sure the fact still holds true for anybody out there. )

Wrong. Last of Us' Ellie is voiced by Ashley Johnson.

Idk how i got 1 disagree when stating a fact... Its on the Last of Us' IMDB page lol. Hell Naughty Dog brought her on IGN's E3 stream to prove it. Gotta love the internet. lol

If it's NOT true, then it's not fact.

They changed her due to confusion, there was similarities but she is NOT Ellen page. Not the character or the voice.

The whole 'technically speaking' paragraph was just silly.

Also the article is titled "5 Games You Didn't Know Had Surprising Amounts Of Star Power" ..not "5 completely obvious celebrities in games" lol

Good thing i don't buy my games based on who voicing who, but rather on control,Originality,Freshness and replayability,Creative control,Uniformity. Those are the things i look for in a games.

Kingdom Hearts has some of the best actors in Hollywood doing voices for it. Lol.

Indeed it is!

Kingdom Hearts: Birth By Sleep in particular boasts one of the biggest voice-casts with the most star power, I believe (it's either that or Kingdom Hearts 3D), especially since Leonard Nimoy was brought on to voice Master Xehanort.
