Nathan Fillion and Tricia Helfer Lend Their Voices and Likeness or Halo 3: ODST

Do Celeb Voices in Video Games Make You Want to Buy?

Sometimes, you know in advance that celebs will be lending their voices to video games. Take Afro Samurai for example. Taken from a TV show, it was only natural that Samuel L. Jackson would narrate the action. But imagine my surprise when I cracked open Halo 3: ODST to hear one of my favorite geeks, and one hot cylon voicing two characters in the game. Nathan Fillion (or as I still call him, Captain Mal) and Tricia Helfer of Battlestar Galactica not only speak throughout the game, but their likeness is also used, making this an enjoyable game for more than just the action.

It made me start to wonder if I would have rushed right out and bought the game on release day if I had known that two of my favorite personalities were included (answer — yes, if I was able to that is). But how do you feel: do celeb cameos in video games make you want to rush out and buy?
