Snoop's starring role in new XBLA game Way of the Dogg has gotten us thinking about celebrities in gaming. Here are eight A-listers who've made it onto Xbox 360, for good and in some cases, ill. Enjoy - whilst trying to figure out whose visage got off lightest during the rendering process.
Snoop Lion - Way of the Dogg
The D-O Double G made his first in-game appearance ten years ago in Activision's True Crime: Streets of LA, which was followed up a year later with his role in Def Jam: Fight for NY. More recently, Snoop appears in his very own stage in Tekken Tag Tournament 2, where he can be seen in the background modestly sat atop a golden throne, surrounded by dogs and scantily-clad ladies. Class.
His fourth stint as a game character is in the aforesaid Way of the Dogg, an action rhythm game where you pull punches in time to a few select songs from Snoop's repertoire. Sadly you don't actually get to play as the Dogg himself - he simply teaches you in the ways of mystical heartbeat-bending Kung Fu. Presumably, the game wrapped before Snoop was told by a shaman that he was more lion than canine and subsequently changed his name. Shame really; L-I-O-N isn't nearly as much fun to say.
