According to Gamertell, "Actor and former musician Mark 'Stop Calling Me Marky Mark' Wahlberg, the actor who stars in the game-based flick Max Payne, has once again confirmed that he has never played a Max Payne game. The latest confession comes from the October 2008 issue of Maxim magazine (pp. 86-87)."
In the article, Wahlberg says he doesn't want to add video games to his list of "vices" otherwise he might anger his "girl."
Max Payne PS5 remakes are coming for the first two games from Remedy Entertainment, and we hope this Rockstar Games easter egg is kept in.
The first Max Payne game on PS2 made me view videogames in a new light, and James McCaffrey was vital to absorbing me into Remedy's world.
