6 Most Pointless Celebrity Involvements With Video Games

From AlienLion:

When Kelsey Grammer hosted the Grammys, folks were surprised, since he is an actor and not a musician. Gaming folks, on the other hand, give no poop about the fact that we have the Video Game Awards brimming with movie and music stars, who have little to do with gaming. VGA X was basically an hour-long Sam Jackson commercial, and yes, he did voice a character in GTA: San Andreas but Kelsey Grammer has probably sung a song or two. Now, I’m not ranting or anything, I just find it somewhat strange, especially considering how often it results in awkwardness.

What’s most perplexing is the fact that these celebs themselves willingly (I assume) agree to actually get involved in things so completely out of their waters. I can understand when someone like Shaq simply sells his likeness for a game like Shaq Fu and says “I don’t give a shit, just send the checks,” but why anyone would actually go and spend time and effort to participate in games and gaming, without first... (Culture, Industry, Rise to Honor, Rogue Warrior, VGA's 2012, Wheelman)

It's not a bad game but there really is no point to it featuring Jet Li if you think about it.

As much as I love Kingdom Hearts games the celebrity voices do nothing for me and some of them are downright awful at it.
