The Worst Celebrity Renders of All Time


Your chance to win a free game - of your choosing - has arrived!
Here's how the contest works.

During our research, we discovered dozens of celebrity cameos that, while adorable and wonderful and hilarious, were simply TOO TINY to seriously discuss in the article. Still, we didn't want to throw them out, so we devised the following test:

* Can you correctly identify from what game and what platform each of the sprites above originated?

* Can you also correctly identify all of the "Bonus!" celebrity sprites sprinkled throughout the previous six pages? Again, what game and what platform did they come from?

If so, send us an email at The first person to get everything right - for all 33 celebrity sprites - will win a brand new game. Your choice, so long as it's $60 or less and readily available for purchase in the United States. Deadline for entries is Saturday, May 31st. Further rules and guidelines can be found here.

Happy pixel hunting!

    Spot on, I laughed so hard at the bit about Sly. Whoever crafted that gem of a likeness over at Nintendo is a genius! Great article as usual.

    It's "fiesta" and not "siesta" under the Goldeneye entry. Fiesta is a party and siesta is a nap.

    even though the characters on goldeneye do not resemble the characters on the movies, it is still #1 bond game ever, strange that the more realistic james bond games became, the worse the gameplay got. last thing to mention, best multiplayer bond game has to be nightfire since 7 computers can join in even if there are 1 to 4 players playing, but single player is better so goldeneye is still better than all of the bond games. i am surprised that goldeneye is still 30-40 dollars at one store yet all the bond games for gamecube ps2 x box ps3 and x box 360 excluding the danier craig one is 10 dollars max.

    "Fun Fact#2: The japanese believe David Bowie is the Devil" For all the freaking Gods and Devils, the David Bowie one me laugh so hard I thought I'd die (again). Also, the Macaulay Culkin's gave me a frightening flashback that I don't even know where it came from (and I really, really don't want to remember).

    The developer of Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves only had the rights to make a game based on the movie. They didn't get the rights to use any of the actor's likenesses which is why Robin Hood doesn't look anything like Kevin Costner nor do any of the other characters look like the actual actors that portrayed them.
  • Mavarious - March 18, 2009 2:38 a.m.

    hehehe, that was hilarious
