Celebrities Don't Sell Games

Danielle D of VideoGameOlogists.com writes:

"I didn’t buy Fallout 3 because Liam Neeson voiced the main character’s dad. I didn’t buy L.A. Noire because half the cast of Mad Men were in the game. I didn’t play the Assassin’s Creed series because of Kristen Bell’s minor role in the game. So why do we make such a big deal about big named celebrities in our games?"

Agreed, can't stand him. I still downloaded the demo and that didn't help the cause as the game isn't good regardless of him being in it or not.

I'm sure I don't need to point it out to you but that sentence made your opinion on the game completely invalid. And Brutal Legend was not a bad game, it was a very good game.

Not really sure why it's used as an example here though, as the game sold well over a million copies, which is rather good.

It was a good game, its just that people didn't expect it to turn into a RTS, which not everyone liked.

For some it does! example; a couple of years ago right after GTA 4 came out, i was reading a game informer and somebody wrote in saying they scored it to high since it didn't have enough high end actors/voice actors especially compared to past gtas.

I COME TO PLAY GOOD GAMES, it doesn't matter to me if an ACTOR I like is in the game ( It's nice but not enough to buy a game for) , if the story is bad or the gameplay is horrible but a famous actor is in it, I wouldn't buy it still.

never thought about that actually..huh..

and i DON'T care about "big named celebrities" being in games as long as they do a great job..

otherwise..i don't bat an eyelid.

but do care about well known voice actors (I.E Nolan North, John DiMaggio..etc..)
