Fractally long
In this thread, you post text, photos, and videos of people who are famous for something else (music, politics, whatever) playing video games.

  • Garry Kasparov, world chess champion, receives a letter about high scores in various games. My favorite part: I have asked Andrew Page to get you the very best game I have ever seen on a microcomputer. It is called ELITE and was given to me by John Nunn. John and I are both rated "Deadly" now, and if you give up chess and practice really hard you too might become deadly in three months. Here's a picture. Here's an article with more...
  • Siskel and Ebert, movie critics known for their verbal fights, duke it out in game format in this video. They're using the Kinect Sega Activator to play Greatest Heavyweights of the Ring for the Sega Genesis.

Vin Diesel tried to make a movie out of his Dungeons & Dragons character. Well, it's technically a tabletop game, but still.

[up][up]That, and he's a big Battlefield 2 (and allegedly Bad Company) fan.
Would you believe I never fully watched the original Indiana Jones trilogy? I gotta correct that someday.

Matthew Perry was apparently a big fan of Fallout 3. I can only imagine what went through his head when he was offered the opportunity to voice Benny.

There needs to be a word for those brief moments of clarity where you realize just how profoundly weird your life is.
