I'm sure the former G4 folks do, but most of the famous people in MMO's I've ever heard of played WoW.

Finkleboom- 55 Mando w/ 25% more Jesus Beams <OOTAP>
Finkle'Fabulous- 55 Vanguard: "The Big Pink Tank" <OOTAP>

even if they did, most would probably not advertize it. can you imagine if people start hounding you, trying to figure out which server you play on, what factio, what character. paparazzi in rl are bad enough.

I do know that Henry Carvil plays Dragon age, so who knows....

Authors Jim Butcher and Mercedes Lackey both played City of Heroes, so I'm sure there are several celebrities that will be playing SWTOR (it's Star Wars after all!), but yeah - I doubt they'll ever come forward.
Maybe someone in the NCIS cast plays it, since they joked about McGee playing SWTOR at some point on the show (the episode with the MMO developers that were being killed).

as someone else said if they did they'd not ever talk about it.

Hypothetical situation. if say... Patrick stewart played SW:TOR. if he posted here "yeah I play SW:TOR, my character is named "bob" and I play on ebon falcon.


He'd be getting a LOT of tells. and proably constant harassment

not only did Mercedes Lackey play City of heroes, but she also got them to let her write one of the modules AND was one of the staunchest fighters against the game's shutdown. as if I needed any more reasons to adore her :P

Sheldon Cooper, Leonard Hofstadter, Howard Wolowitz and Rajesh Koothrappali play SWTOR... along with Bernadette Rostenkowski.

Those are surely more celebreties to me than the lame Mr.T and Chucky Norris

I don't hate the guy who says Mr. T is lame, but I pity the fool.
