    First thing I thought of at John McClane was the 5th element, weeeeird ass movie. But also, I never realized how pretty Ellen Page actually is.

    *SOILER FOR THE LAST OF US DLC* Does anyone else think's it's strange that both Ellen Page and Ellie were revealed to be lesbians on the same day?

    Yeah I heard she had come out a few days ago, and the first thing that popped into my mind was which happened first.... only to find out they happened on the same day! That's some kind of mystical, stars in alignment, witch craft.

    Well, Ellie could also be bi. Or maybe she's experimenting with her sexuality. She's still young, afterall.

    Was there really no research done on the Ellie part? She initially ACTUALLY looked like Ellen Page, and later in the development they tweaked her to look like her ACTUAL VA, Ashley Johnson. You can look at Ashley's headshot, then Ellie, and it's right there. This was actually covered in the gaming media, and somehow someone working for GAMESRADAR didn't know this. COME ON.

    How about Joel from the last of us based on Hugh Jackman in Prisoners (or the other way around)

    Another one is Eddie Mcclintock who looks like Frank West from Dead Rising.

    You're forgetting Rebecca Chambers (Resident Evil series) who is based from the Japanese singer Ayumi Hamasaki.

    Wow, you're right! I didn't notice that before.
  • XNam360 - February 27, 2014 5:56 p.m.

    Street Fighter is filled with 'em. I've never heard the Dee Jay / Billy Blanks one before... Here are some others that didn't make the list: Hugo = Andre the Giant Dan = Steven Segal ... I know Capcom's "official" explanation is that Dan is just an SNK parody, but everything from the ponytail, to the face, to the whole personality (i.e., completely not realizing how silly he really is) convinces me that there's no way this one isn't true.
  • XNam360 - February 27, 2014 8:50 p.m.

    Sorry, I may have worded that last line in my comment a bit wrong... What I meant is there's no way that Dan is not a Steven Segal parody.

    The real commander shepard?
  • SheperdherenoShepard - February 27, 2014 11:03 a.m.

    I think Jan Lee of DoA is missing in the Bruce Lee clone part, Snake should be there, but one I like in particular is Wheeler of SH Homecoming and Forest Whitaker, I thought MAria of SH2 was supposed to be similar to Cristina Aguilera too, finally in the Warriors of Troy game, Achilles looks a lot like Brad Pitt version of the character only bigger.

    What about Travis Touchdown and Johnny Knoxville?
  • slimjim441 - February 27, 2014 10:29 a.m.

    Fun list, but I'd like to add: Solid Snake - Snake Plissken (Kurt Russell) Liquid Snake - Alec Trevelyan (Sean Bean) And I always thought of Victor Sullivan from Uncharted as Hannibal from the A-Team
  • sandplasma - February 1, 2014 10:01 a.m.

    Tropico's dictator and Fidel Castro is the only other one I can think of.
  • bedelicious - January 31, 2014 8:43 a.m.

    I seem to remember something about Maria from Silent Hill 2 being based on Cameron Diaz.
  • rxb - January 31, 2014 5:11 a.m.

    I read a while back Hideki Kamiya based the design for Dante on the Duran Duran bassist John Talyor.
  • marcus-paul-bevan - January 31, 2014 4:33 a.m.

    What about the REALLY bad PS 1 game Apocalypse? Bruce Willis actually appeared in it as the main character. He charged so much to be in it, it actually killed the budget of the game AND Bruce receive several shares in Activision as well. Not a bad payday for a crap title.
