So why the thread? Good question..here's the big one.
The Point I'm stating is "Why use Celebrities for Promoting games?" I mean you don't have celebrities promoting games like Need for Speed, or any of the other games like The Sims 2 or even NASCAR '08, you don't even see Celebrities promoting things like Grand Theft Auto or some other games. And what about the Sports personalities promoting football (Hint hint John Madden), baseball, and even basketball and hockey. (Granted for a while Golf greats like Jack Nickalaus and Arnold Palmer did promote golf games as did Tiger Woods.

Frankly you may dismiss it as such, but I say, why have celebrities push the game at all.. I'm betting that of those shown I bet none have actually played the game. None of them..
So why use them to promote a game they themselves may never have played?
Now that I've gotten that out in the open.. Let's see what is said. After all I'm betting no one who ever plays World of Warcraft actually runs into celebrities.. (After all Celebrities usually want to keep a low profile.. rather than being spotted by someone on a WoW server..)
