25 Most Ridiculous Celebrity "Gamers"


23. Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie (but mostly Paris Hilton)

Was there ever any doubt that the ultimate princess of publicity would appear on our list of gaming poseurs? Of course not, but we're still impressed by the hotel heiress's work ethic. Lending her air of vague condescension to every console in reach was nice, but Paris really went the extra mile when she whored out her name as well. Paris Hilton's Jewel Jam, available on mobile phones, sounds awesome. Now if she'd just stop calling it Diamond Quest...

24. Ronald McDonald

Does a fast food mascot count as a celebrity? Dunno. What we do know is that this photo has haunted our dreams for days now and we had to share the misery. The only thing creepier than Ronald's leering gaze is Mario's dead-eyed synthetic stare. He looks like a drive-thru speaker box... from Hell.

25. The GamesRadar Editorial Staff

Do a bunch of badly dressed website editors count as "celebrities"? No.
No, they do not. After seven pages of snide mockery, however, we only thought it fair to include ourselves. Clearly, you don't have to be a movie star or music mogul to look like a complete gaming jackass.

    Stupid celebrity you no want game!! YOU WANT HOTPOCKET!!!! AHHHHHHHHH!!!!! All rights reserved to the Hotpocket brand any similarities of celebrities actually eating Hotpockets is just pure coincidence.

    Hahahaha Silly Celebrity, Controllers are for Gamers! I know, Bad Joke but I felt the need to post it.

    I believe that, after last week's Uncharted 3 gameplay premiere debacle, Jimmy Fallon deserves a prime spot on this list.

    For #16 the guy on the right's nickname is Triforce. He's from the Street Fighter Community in NYC and He's no famous celebrity. That is definitely NOT Reggie Bush as I've actually met Reggie Bush. That guy looks nothing like Reggie. Anyways Triforce always wear's a Power Glove and he's the CEO or something of Empire Arcadia. Just Google "Empire Arcadia Triforce" and his page is the first result. Look at the images and videos from the results.

    What about Solja boy and S.O.D.M.G... they ruin every shooter on 360
  • EnragedTortoise1 - February 26, 2010 8:46 p.m.

    Reggie looks like he's gonna eat my soul.... Help me...

    I'm reading this after perusing the archives, so I know I'm about 9 months late, however, it needs to be said Reggie Fils-Aime is definitely more geeky looking than Bill Gates. Despite the size difference, I bet Bill took Reggie's lunch money as a kid.

    Don't forget the Rock Band Gang from the Today Show on NBC. Not that I'm knocking them for being bad, it's the enthusiastic looks they had playing Living on a Prayer. Surely, Rock Band has other songs they know.

    zac efron should not be allowed within a 100 meter range to anything logical.
  • crispynipple - November 18, 2008 4:54 p.m.

    Hmmmmmmmm. Hot Celebrity Game ladies. *drool*
  • elite0 - November 14, 2008 7:23 a.m.

  • Trapped_In_Hiskool - December 6, 2008 11:18 p.m.

    Notice Paris Hilton's face NEVER changes between photos. They all look upon you with sneer and contempt.
  • Cwf2008 - December 6, 2008 5:40 a.m.

    Well TheFish, it should actually be restated "No celebrity should be allowed within a 1 mile radius of anything logical and/or having to do with videogames." Seriously, these washed up, celebrities who no one gives a rats ass about make videogames look bad.

    This is mean, but hilarious haha
  • barrage7667 - November 26, 2008 2:47 a.m.

    posing for a camera while playing videogames!!! everyone knows if your playing a videogame ur eyes are glued to the T.V. you are hunched forward and motionless,except for your mouth as you are (most likely) screaming at the T.V.
  • insignia123 - November 14, 2008 7:15 a.m.

  • lovinmyps3 - June 20, 2009 2:41 a.m.

    i dont really care about this stuff only that it pushes the "casual games" trend. people see it and go "hey my favorite celebrity plays wii, so should i!!"
  • tailsandy - June 1, 2009 11:47 p.m.

    ... What a moron the Reggies are. That's the BOTTOM of the Wii that's signed.
  • Mr.Epic64 - March 7, 2009 8:40 p.m.
