25 Most Ridiculous Celebrity "Gamers"

Photographic proof that famous people should never touch a controller again

23. Paris Hilton and Nicole Richie (but mostly Paris Hilton)

Was there ever any doubt that the ultimate princess of publicity would appear on our list of gaming poseurs? Of course not, but we're still impressed bythehotel heiress'swork ethic. Lending her air of vague condescension to every console inreach was nice, but Paris really went the extra mile when she whored out her name as well. Paris Hilton's Jewel Jam, available on mobile phones, sounds awesome. Now if she'd just stop calling itDiamond Quest...

24. Ronald McDonald

Does a fast food mascot count as a celebrity? Dunno. What we do know is that this photo has haunted our dreams for days now and we had to share the misery. The only thing creepier than Ronald's leering gaze is Mario's dead-eyed synthetic stare. He looks like a drive-thru speaker box... from Hell.

25. The GamesRadar Editorial Staff

Do a bunch of badly dressed website editors count as "celebrities"? No.
No, they do not. After seven pages of snide mockery, however, we only thought it fair to include ourselves. Clearly, you don't have to be a movie star or music mogul to look like a complete gaming jackass.
