Most featured Film star in games?

Post by carl_retrotext » Sat Jul 30, 2011 8:35 am

I was thinking about this the other day.

I thought It would be Arnold Schwarzenegger, but can only think of the games that feature him, Predator, terminator 2 and Red heat.

Die hard trilogy counts as one game! - As I remember Hudson-Hawk for Bruce Willis.

Stallone - Rambo - Rambo III and Cobra

any ideas?

For Schwarzenegger, there were also Running Man and Total Recall games on the Amiga, and Last Action Hero was released on various formats. Plus there were games based on the first and third Terminator films and there was the arcade/MD version of T2 alongside the game released on the computer formats.

Bruce Willis has a lot - Die Hard, Die Hard 2, Die Hard Trilogy, Die Hard Trilogy 2, Die Hard Arcade, Die Hard: Nakatomi Plaza, Die Hard Vendetta as well as Hudson Hawk and the non-film related Apocalypse on the PSone.

Do some of the Bruce Willis movie games not have an alternate face and soundalike voices because he wouldn't license his image? I'm sure that goes for some other stars too (Tom Cruise for one). So not all movie games feature the movie stars, they have the characters (or alternates - see Blade Runner for example).

I’m guessing Harrison Ford due to all the star wars and Indiana Jones titles.

Take a guess at Leonard Nimoy as Spock in a lot of Star Trek games?

This is a bit of a reverse situation but - Vinnie Jones is surely up there somewhere. Can't even begin to think how many footie (including management) games he must have been in.

It could be him, but only if he is actually featured in the game, i.e. the atari ones would not count in the starwars series, also he should be billed in the game.

Robocop for instance is two actors who played Murphy so don't count.

Bronson in Death wish III is a perfect example as the sprite and the advertising featured his image.

Definately either Arnie or Stallone. I'll go with the latter.

Bruce Lee has been in every fighting game ever, may not have always been called Bruce Lee but you knew it was him :) Mark Hamil must be up there, star wars, wing commander and loads of voice work in stuff like batman.

Vin Diesel is the only one who actually gives a damn about the quality of games he's in.

They may not all be triple A titles (Oh Wheelman, why did your developers have to go bust?!?! You could have been so great!!) but it's obvious he's really trying to put the effort in. Unlike some "Celebrities" who're just content to plaster their mush all over the box and little else. Or record some rigor mortis-inducing "Commentary" that sounds more like they were too busy counting their voice-over fee than actually delivering a good performance.

Hasn't Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan been in quite a few of them?

Keanu Reeves has been in a few what with Matrix and Bill & Ted games.

But I think it has to be Stallone; Judge Dredd, Rambo, Rocky, Demolition Man, Cobra, Cliffhanger etc.
